- Edward Zuma has accused Mzansi's judicial system of being untrustworthy
- He was speaking to the SABC outside the Pietermaritzburg High Court today
-Mzansi took to the comments section, sharing some cheeky criticisms of their own
The son of former President Jacob Zuma, Edward, says he does not trust South Africa’s judicial system. Edward was speaking to SABC News outside the Pietermaritzburg High Court.
"We have learnt from our father President Zuma to be strong despite the difficulties that we face, this case has taken a toll on us as a family we have been victimized and we continue to be victimized for the sake of harassing President Zuma but as a family, we remain strong." he said.
While the businessman's criticisms do not come as a surprise given his father's current position, Mzansi social media users found the comments out of place and unnecessary.
Check out some of the mixed reactions to the post below:
Siphamandla Sithole said:
"If our judiciary was not trustworthy your Pa could've long gone to prison."
Vusi Pumpe said:
"Whenever the politicians are facing charges they sing one tune " the are forces behind this, it is politically motivated"
Sive Cebisa said:
"Obviously, he would say that. Why is the media giving him airtime?"

"Who's Edward Now?"
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Duduzane Zuma has caused quite the media frenzy, arriving at the Pietermaritzburg High court accompanied by a troop of bodyguards. The businessman counts himself amongst some of Jacob Zuma's top supporters who, in a show of solidarity, have arrived at the Zondo Commission.
A short clip of the frantic incident was caught on video by journalist @ietskaylo.
"Duduzane Zuma has just arrived at Pietermaritzburg High Court. Security is extra tight today as the media scrum with the arrival of Jacob Zuma's top supporters," she captioned the post.
While many social media users have raised their eyebrows at Zuma's large entourage, others not surprisingly are wondering why social distancing protocols are being completely ignored. Check out some of their comments below:
"Just look at them! No social distancing! Disgraceful behaviour..."
"Super spreaders at work?"
"Why does he get so many bodyguards?"
"Gang of thieves!"
