JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema will be getting married in Limpopo today.

Malema is tying the knot to his long-time sweetheart Mantwa Matlala in a private traditional ceremony.

Malema has warned that those who arrive at his wedding without an invitation will be turned away.

He says this also applies to his EFF supporters.

"There will be tight security and therefore no one should complain when they're turned away."

Malema says his future wife is from a private family and has appealed to the nation to respect his privacy.

"A family that conducts its business in a private manner and it doesn't seek any limelight."

The EFF leader says he is delighted that he is ending the year on a high note by marrying the woman he loves.
