South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has handed over several homes to grannies in need to commemorate Women’s Day.

On Monday, the party shared snaps of the houses at an undisclosed location. Malema vowed that the EFF would provide “spacious” houses to all citizens.

“When we say our people must have quality houses, we are speaking of women dignity as many households are women-headed.

“The EFF government will provide such quality, spacious houses to all the people,” he said.

Social media users, however, had mixed reactions to the post. While some found the gift-giving touching, others felt it was not the government’s responsibility to give out free housing but rather ensure job security.

@MphahleleMM said: “Since some of us aren’t grannies, and we don’t need freebies, please tell us how you’re going to create jobs. For us to build our own houses.”

@Danny08613982 said: “Damn, I give it to the designer of this house. He/she is good. Thanx EFF.”

@Phasha_CM said: “Okay, but this looks like luxury; It will be difficult to build these in a large scale & give them for free; It’s good but not sustainable.”

@ThaboFresh “Grannies, you still young. You just need a well-paying job then you’ll build it yourself. In that way you won’t rent it out for tuckshop.”

@errolbsk said: “Thank you Eff. At least you are paying back the grannies by using their own VBS funds.”

@VictoriaAfrica9 said: “You can’t be building people houses. We need to create a friendly environment for entrepreneurs, SMEs & fund them so they can create employment opportunities. People must afford the life they want to live and not rely on the gov. The only people who deserve free houses are orphans.”
