Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is currently out on RM2million bail after he was slapped with 45 charges, has his family standing by him. One such family member is his nine-year-old granddaughter.

Sofee is seen in an Instagram video uploaded by her mother Nurulhidayah Ahmad Zahid, telling her grandfather's opponents that she "will make you regret your life".

In the 28-second clip, the UMNO president's granddaughter appears to have been coached presumably by her mother who is rallying support for her embattled father.

The clip featuring Zahid's granddaughter was shot inside a moving car, in which Sofee is seen pausing in between her "threat"

"You can lock my grandpa up, but not his soul and his fighting spirit. We are his family and we will never stop praying for him.

"I will make your life un-peaceful (sic). I will make you regret your life. Remember – I am only nine years old and I am my country's future."
