Last year the ANC MP was forced to retract allegations he made against Malema that he physically assaulted his wife.
Malema in turn called for President Cyril Ramaphosa to respond to allegations that he used to physically abuse his former late wife. Malema later apologised to Ramaphosa.
Mente said the ethics committee “remained mum,” on allegations against Mamabolo by his former partner that he was physically abusive.
Mazzone said she did not subscribe to the notion that “all men are trash", but said instances of gruesome killings and the rape of South African women were indicative of “psychopaths” who needed to be dealt with.
She referred to “little boys” in parliament who used the platform to settle “old fights over a girl”, without directly referring to Mamabolo and Malema.
“Women are being chopped up, pregnant women are killed with babies in their bodies,” Mazzone said.
ANC MP Zanele Nkomo said GBV defied the essence of human dignity embedded in the South African constitution.
Nkomo said GBV was no longer only “a scourge". "It is not a crisis, it is a pandemic,” she said.
