WATCH | Julius Malema carrying a child on his back during self-isolation: 'Stay at home cadres'
EFF leader Julius Malema is raising awareness about coronavirus while self-isolating at home.
He is spending quality time with family, but it's not glamorous at all. It's as real as many parents know it can be.
In a picture shared on social media, he's carrying a baby on his back. Malema's video has gone viral, as his followers admire his softer side.
On Monday, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a 21-day lockdown, starting at midnight on Thursday, as government tightens measures to prevent the spread of the virus.
SA has 402 cases of Covid-19.
Ramaphosa said the lockdown was the only way to ensure that millions are safe. Health-care professionals, members of the military and police officers are among those exempted from the lockdown.
