EFF leader Julius Malema had planned to meet Fezeka Kuzwayo and apologise to her personally.
“I’ve apologised to Kuzwayo and she passes on at a time when we were actually preparing to go and see [her] in person to apologise to her,” Malema said.
He said he now planned to extend the apology to Kuzwayo’s mother.
“I will never have a problem apologising to her mother.
“That’s how far I’m prepared to go and send condolences to the family and to repeat my public apology.
“I wanted to apologise to her. We were working towards visiting her to apologise for sending her to Zuma’s house, i will not try and justify my actions by saying i did not know that Zuma was a monster and that he waa going to take advantage of her. All i can say is that i was an ANC member under his control doing his biding just like all the other senior ANC members. Just look at the ANC members of parliament and how they are under his influence. That how much of a monster the man can be and I’m glad to be free from him.” Malema added.
When he was president of the ANC Youth League in 2009, Malema had controversially said Kuzwayo had had a “nice” time with Zuma.
“When a woman didn’t enjoy it, she leaves early in the morning. Those who had a nice time will wait until the sun comes out, request breakfast and ask for taxi money,” Malema told students at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology at the time.
