Johannesburg - The Economic Freedom Fighters on Wednesday welcomed an apology to its leader Julius Malema by National Assembly Speaker and ANC chairwoman Baleka Mbete.

"The EFF welcomes this apology as a step forward and hopes indeed that the unfortunate events of the 12 February 2015 will be reviewed with the same sincerity expressed in the Speaker's apology," the organisation said in a statement.
