South African opposition leader Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters and his wife Mantwa Matlala have added another young freedom fighter to their family.

Malema announced on Instagram on Wednesday that his wife had given birth to a baby boy who the couple have named Kopano.

The couple have another son, Munzhedzi, who was born in October 2016. The baby was kept out of the public eye for a full year before his proud father posted a picture on Instagram.

Juju also has an older son named Ratanang from a previous relationship.
