Johannesburg - Parliament has sent condolences to the family of EFF leader Julius Malema following the death of his grandmother.
In a statement, National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete and National Council of Provinces chairperson Thandi Modise said they have learned with sadness the passing of Sarah Malema.
“Ms Malema, affectionately known as Koko Sarah, was the pillar of strength and the rock upon which her children, grandchildren, the family in general and members of the community derived support, wisdom and inspiration.
“As grandmothers play a prominent role not only on their children's lives but those of their grandchildren, the pain of such loss is profoundly deep,” Mbete and Modise said.
They extended their heartfelt sympathies to Malema and his family on Sarah Malema’s death.
