Julius Malema’s right-hand man married Siphesihle Pezi in a traditional wedding on Saturday at Mahosini village outside Malamulele in Limpopo. Apparently she was recently employed by the ANC in Parliament and news of her wedding to Shivambu on Saturday set tongues wagging.
Pezi looked glamorous in her traditional Xitshonga outfit, Xibelani. EFF leaders Julius Malema and Dali Mpofu as well as former Limpopo MEC David Masondo and former ANCYL deputy president Ronald Lamola were among the guests, along with the Vhavenda King Mphephu Ramabulana. Media personality Given Mkhari was the MC.
Those attending were asked not to take pictures, but photos of the glowing couple were shared on social media platforms. The first leg of the wedding was held in Cape Town last weekend and only some members of the EFF national leadership were invited, according to those in attendance.
Some suggested that the fact that the bride works in Parliament and that she is apparently an ANC member, explained the secrecy around the wedding rituals. Malema allegedly did not attend the wedding function in Cape Town, sparking speculation about whether he approves of his deputy’s marriage into the ANC.
