The ANC MP who accused Julius Malema of abusing his wife Mantoa apologised to the EFF leader in the early hours of Friday morning.

Although Mamabolo initially said he would not retract his statement, he quietly issued his official apology on Facebook, in a post the has since been deleted.

He has also since deleted his tweets claiming that he has proof of the allegations and daring Malema to meet him in court.

RELATED: 'It's BS! Don't stand there apologising to one another, men. Apologise to us!'

In his apology, Mamabolo says he was compelled to ask Malema about the allegations because President Cyril Ramaphosa had previously called on parliamentarians to expose any form of gender-based violence (GBV) in the country.

Mamabolo claims “some jealous friends” called “friends of Mantoa” sent him messages since November last year about the abuse claims.

On Thursday, President Ramaphosa apologised to the Malema and his wife for the accusations made by a member of Parliament.

In turn, Malema apologised to Ramaphosa for making allegations that he abused his late wife Nomazizi Mtshotshisa.
