Malema agrees that ‘MaNtuli failed us’
The president apparently once told family members someone close to him had made an attempt on his life, and MaNtuli was expelled from the household a few weeks later.

In the wake of the ANC policy conference and President Jacob Zuma’s statements on the ruling party’s presidential race, EFF MP Fana Mokoena has shared his disappointment with Zuma’s second wife, Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma.
The president has been rallying behind his ex-wife, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, saying it is time South Africa got a woman president, again suggesting the loser in the presidential race should become deputy president.
His statements have been highly criticised, with the SACP saying he is trying to turn the ruling party into a “Zuma dynasty”.
But Mokoena blames MaNtuli for failing in her alleged attempt to poison the president.
“MaNtuli failed us,” he tweeted on Tuesday night, a remark Malema seemingly agreed with, only saying: “Yeses!”

Since the alleged poison plot failed, Mokoena again asked if the four lions that escaped from Kruger National Park on Monday could travel a long distance undetected to “attend to a certain matter of national importance”.
Malema last year used Cuban former president Fidel Castro’s memorial service in Soweto to share his thoughts on the alleged poison plot.
While America attempted to kill Castro 600 times, MaNtuli had only allegedly attempted to kill Zuma once, he said. According to Malema, however, it may have been an accident because she had only been using korobela (a love potion) to keep Zuma infatuated with her. But he said she had used way too much of the stuff.
“MaNtuli did not use poison, she used ‘Korobela’, but put an overdose!”
Poet Ntsiki Mazwai, who has not been a fan of Zuma for a while, once said MaNtuli was “our hero”.
The alleged poison plot surfaced after Zuma was reportedly told by US doctors that the reason for his hospitalisation in June 2014 was poisoning.
On his return from the US, Zuma apparently told family members someone close to him had made an attempt on his life.
He then ejected MaNtuli from the homestead a few weeks after breaking the news.
MaNtuli has, through a statement issued by her lawyers, denied any involvement in the alleged poisoning plot.
