South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters Commander In Chief Julius Malema fears has told members of the press that he fears for the safety of his wife Mantwa Matlala and his children after his address was posted on Twitter by a freelance journalist Jacques Pauw .
Pauw tweeted the address of the house of Malema’s wife claiming it is being rented from Cigarette manufacturer Adriano Mazzotti.
“The EFF brand has to go through the test, if it is weak and based on weak principles then it will be destroyed by rumour mongering. My wife is educated and comes from a stable family, she is an independent woman and for her to survive, she does not rely on me or any other man.
He further disclosed that he is into cigarette business.
Malema: It matters who funds us. People will tell you, "I am in the cigarette business", you can't say "Are you smuggling or not smuggling?" We take that money based on their word and we get told later that this is illicit money.
