Malema spoke about how men tend to spend their money on useless things with useless people who don’t have money themselves, offering advice to Tbo Touch on how to best navigate a happy marriage he stressed the importance of taking care of both your mother and mother in law to protect your wife.
“You must give your mother money because she must not fight with your wife. Because if you don’t give her money she is going to think that your wife is taking your money for her family and for herself. She must encourage you to give your mother money because mothers and their boys are a big problem. The makoti has to fight for space. If you give her money and you look after her, she will never have a problem with makoti”
Malema added that when their sons get married, mothers get scared and think some little girl is going to take their place, and that the real reason mothers tend not to get along with the sons’ wives is usually because they don’t look after their mothers.
He further gave advice on how to make sure you are loved by your mother-in-law. “You must also look after your mother-in-law he said, so that when you get into trouble with your wife and she wishes to go back home that your mother-in-law will encourage her to come back to you and fix your marital issues.
