“For any avoidance of doubt, we hereby repeat that your allegations are vexatious, misplaced, spurious and untrue. We are further instructed that you have no evidence of any of your allegations. Selfevidently, therefore, there is no factual basis to your claims. The importance of this admission regarding your liability to our client for such defamatory statements cannot be overstated.”
Matlala has ordered Mamabolo to make a public statement that he will share on all of his social media accounts and that it must be sent to all media houses.
“Should you fail to do so, we hold instructions to institute further legal action against you which action we will institute damages against our client in the amount of R1,000, 000,00 (One Million Rand) and seek punitive costs against you.”
Last week during the State of the Nation Address, Mamabolo, accused Malema of abusing his wife.
"Mantoa (Malema's wife) was abused at home by the honourable Malema… They won't deny it because it's true," said Mamabolo last week.
On Monday, in an interview with Sowetan, Mamabolo insisted that his allegations were true.
At the time, Mamabolo said: “They wont deny it because its true… I am challenging them to come out and deny it. It has been four days now. They must issue out a statement or Malema himself must come out and deny it.”
