- Julius Malema visited the family of the late Enoch Mpianzi on Wednesday
- The EFF leader vowed to help the family get answers and justice for the 13-year-old's death
- Photos and videos of the visit were shared online and they left South Africans with conflicting views
Julius Malema visited the family of Enoch Mpianzi - the Grade 8 Parktown Boys' High School pupil who drowned during a camp at Nyati Bush and River Break Lodge last week.
Malema paid his respects to the family and vowed that the EFF would assemble a legal team that will help the family get to the bottom of the 13-year-old's passing.
The EFF shared several photos and videos of the visit on their official Twitter page. One of the images shows Enoch's grandfather addressing Juju on behalf of the entire family.
The EFF reported Juju said: "Through the passing of Enoch we have lost the future of the Mpianzi family, the future of the country and the future of the continent and we must ensure no young person is ever lost to us in this manner again."
Briefly.co.za gathered in another video, the EFF leader vowed that he and his party would make sure the Department of Education was held accountable in both the legislature and parliament.
Social media users were left divided on Juju's visit to the mourning family. Some applauded Malema for caring while others accused him of trying to score political points.
Twitter user, @OneNation70290, commented:
"Malema has no shame. He is just trying to score political points and to stay relevant."
