Cape Town – A girlfriend of Julius Malema who is currently studying in the United Kingdom has tested positive for HIV.
According to the girl, she last saw Malema August last year when she visited home for holidays. She went on to explained that she was forced to take up tests due to the recent pictures of Malema circulating on the internet that suggests he has slimmed down.
Though Julius Malema says he is prepared to take a HIV test in public to prove he is healthy and that his weight loss is by choice, the results of his girlfriend has caused great fear in the EFF leader.
According to The Citizen, Malema told an EFF business gala dinner at the Meropa Casino in Polokwane, Limpopo, on Saturday night that his weight loss was not due to illness.
He said he was feeling healthier and more energetic and joked that his performance between the sheets had not been negatively affected by the weight loss, the newspaper reported.
“I am not sick. I am just looking after myself. I can take any test publicly anywhere, from Aids to sugar diabetes. There is no problem. Even the manhood is still working.”
It is not known if Malema would be going ahead to take tests in public after his girlfriend has already tested positive for HIV.
