EFF leader Julius Malema is known for his bullish and uncompromising approach to politics.
Recently, Briefly.co.za shared a prime example of this when Juju took no prisoners at the State of the Nation Address in Cape Town.
However, South Africans got to see Juju's softer side following a kindhearted social media post on Sunday.
Twitter user Lebo Keswa (@LebohangKeswa) took to the social media platform to reveal news of her grandmother's 99th birthday celebration:
"Yesterday we hosted my Grandmothers 99th Birthday at the community hall with over 100 elderly people from our community. She woke up very emotional and has been praying the whole morning."
Tweeps fell in love with the beautiful tweet and gesture, as the post started trending.
Briefly.co.za noted that the feel-good post attracted 8 000 likes and Malema was one of those who commented.
The charismatic politician showered the gogo with hugs and kisses, on behalf of the EFF.
Bessie’s Head (@lebomashile) heaped praise on the gogo's family,
"This is so beautiful bitso! May blessings reign over you& your family’s lives for doing such a wonderful thing."

"And l didn't get my invitation to the party. Happy belated to granny may you continue praying for those who can't pray for themselves."
Palesa sehume (@PalesaSehume) added,
"You are too blessed, let our loving God grant her many more years Happy Birthday to Mma."
