Julius Malema, commander in chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), is not above a little summer fun. Malema on Wednesday posted photos of himself in a forested area, looking relaxed as he carried wife Mantwa on his shoulders.

The EFF leader has slimmed down and become fitter this year after adopting a healthier diet, hitting the gym and quitting sugar and alcohol.

The tweet was captioned, "We play together 💍 😍 😘 ❤️ "

Do we detect the start of a new summertime challenge?
