Malema Attacks IEC Officer Who Intended To Remove His Wife's Fake Nail

Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party on Wednesday slammed an Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) official who intended to remove his wife’s fake nails at his voting station before she could cast her vote.

Malema who cast his vote at the Mponegele Primary School in Seshego together with his family said:There was some official who said to my wife that she must take out her nail so that they can put a mark (on her thumb). And I found that bizarre because where is that written in the rules that women who have long nails can’t vote?We cannot have such a patriarchal arrangement happening at the voting station.

Luckily the electoral officer came and said there is no such a thing, she can vote with her nail.
