The show of solidarity was inspired by the recent campaigns combating gender-based violence. Mabeleng shared photos and details of the gesture via Facebook.

4. Helen Zille throws shade at Juju’s school: “His kid goes to Curro”

The school is meant to service children of impoverished parents and Malema aims to achieve the goal within the next five years.

However, Briefly.co.za noticed South African Defence Union national secretary Pikkie Greeff wasn't overly-impressed and shared a light-hearted response via social media.

Via his Twitter handle, Greeff shared the below response: "5 years for 1 school? Someone introduce this guy to Curro."

Former Western Cape premier Helen Zille then seemingly jumped on the bandwagon and added that Malema's child attends the well-known private school.
