Julius Malema will wed Mantwa Matlala, a woman who won his heart years ago, The Star reported.
The traditional wedding is likely to be on the weekend of 27 and 28 December in Seshego, Polokwane, the Star newspaper has reported.
Mantwa has been described as a private person by those who know her. “She’s not in politics. Their relationship dates back to the time when she was at Capricorn High School,” the newspaper reported.
Malema told The Star: “I don’t know that. Every December, people say I’m about to get married.”
His bride-to-be was equally cagey when asked if she was prepared to confirm speculation of her marriage to Malema.
However, a neighbour said the EFF leader’s family has asked the residents living nearby for permission to erect a marquee on the street on the day of the wedding.
