Malema has attained a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communications and African Studies from the University of South Africa.

The EFF excitedly shared photos of Malema's family‚ their leadership and even the seat Malema has been assigned for the ceremony.

"The first duty of a revolutionary is to be educated‚" the EFF tweeted‚ quoting Che Guevara. "We congratulate u CIC on attainment of BA degree."
