- Former president Jacob Zuma's daughter, Dudu Zuma, has taken to social media in a show of solidarity with her incriminated father
- She shared snaps of the beleaguered Zuma amongst some prominent members of his defence team, looking confident
- Mzansi social media users had mixed reactions with many taking the golden opportunity to criticise the former president
Jacob Zuma's opinionated daughter, Duduzile Zuma, is sticking to her guns and continues to show support to her incriminated father. The loyal daughter this week took to her Twitter account, confidently flexing what she believes to be her father's very capable legal team.
The snap appears to show several of Zuma's advisors seated on either side of him, including fellow embattled ANC members Ace Magashule and Supra Mahumapelo. The men are definitely not shy about their show of solidarity with the former president.
"@PresJGZuma legal team with the top brass of the @MYANC," Dudu captioned the post.
Mzansi social media users were, however, less enthusiastic about the post and took to the comments section to share their criticism of the former president, who has been implicated in countless allegations of corruption and money laundering.
Check out some of their saucy comments below:
"History has no blank pages. Patricia DeLille should be exposed."

"A lot of criminals in one place... So much money looted and stolen by them... Hope to see them all in orange overalls soon."
"They are well financially, the masses are hungry and cold. Wake up black child, they're doing it for themselves and their families, not the voter."

"Which top brass are you talking about? Ace is on his way out of the ANC for good."
"Even these guys left because they realised they'll be fighting a losing battle representing this man..."
@ZakiMathebula humorously said:
"Only JZ is an ANC member there and those two, they're on their way out."
"Why is Msholozi's head so small now? Actually the smallest in this picture."
"Seriously dude, this is scraping the bottom of the barrel. Absolute crap. Methinks they would look better in orange jumpsuits."
" 'Ex top brass' - uSisi is tired shame! Every time daddy gonna appear in court they must play the part, including social media."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a South African political analyst, Xolani Dube, recently said in an interview that he believes former president Jacob Zuma still has a lot of power within the ANC, despite the fact that he recently went on trial for a series of corruption allegations.
According to Dube, corruption-accused Zuma remains the 'magnet' of the political party and even went as far as saying that Zuma - to a certain extent - is the heart and soul of the African National Congress.
"If this soul by the name of Jacob Zuma in the ANC betrays his own organisation, that will be the end of the ANC,” Dube says, according to an SABC article.
Meanwhile, KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala has proved that there is some substance to Dube's words after making it clear that he is standing behind Zuma. According to an eNCA article, Zikalala has made it clear that he is "standing with Zuma" and that "Zuma will not walk alone."
