EFF leader Julius Malema has often said he's not afraid to put his body on the line for his principles‚ but a tweet of his on Friday afternoon reveals he may have put a particularly sensitive part of his anatomy in harm's way during Thursday's parliamentary fracas.

"The bastard is squeezing my balls yeses‚ they always go for my balls this white shirts. They do this all the time‚ hai. No retreat fighters‚" he tweeted.
