Julius Malema has reached a settlement with African National Congress MP Boy Mamabolo in the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader’s defamation case at the Polokwane High Court.
The court ordered Mamabolo to apologise to Malema and his wife Mantoa within 24 hours and refrain from making any other allegations.
Mamabolo was also ordered to pay Malema’s legal costs.
It was a bitter exchange in Parliament that sparked outrage over the use of gender-based violence as a political football.
During replies to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address, Mamabolo accused Malema of abusing his wife Mantoa.
Malema was quick to deny the claims and subsequently kept his promise to take Mamabolo to court over the matter.
The red berets leader initially wanted to sue the ANC MP for R2 million in damages.
With a settlement now reached, Mamabolo’s expected to foot Malema’s legal bill, apologise on social media and send proof of the apology to Malema’s lawyers in 24 hours.
