'Malema trying to attract Grace Mugabe who is now a rich widow,' says Mutodi
Mutodi was irked by Malema's allegations that President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government of tormenting Robert Mugabe until he died.
Malema said Mnangagwaâ€™s government hasn't paid the benefits promised the former president.
However, that's not what the government said: it claimed to have paid all of Mugabe's medical bills while he was in Singapore, and it's funding the mausoleum at the National Heroes Acre.
Julius Malema was foul-mouthed when he visited Zimbabwe. Itâ€™s unfortunate he tried to impress the former First Lady Grace by denigrating President Mnangagwa. Grace still looks young & is filthy rich & Malema decided to take a dig on the government in order to impress her..â€" Hon. Dr Energy Mutodi (PhD) (@energymutodi) September 24, 2019
On Monday Malema visited the Mugabe family on Monday to pay his last respects to the former Zimbabwean president.
The EFF leader made the comments after a meeting with Grace Mugabe. He emerged to heap praise on Mugabe's widow, calling her an inspiration.
Malema said Grace was a strong widow who will not be pushed by arrivalists.
