Spoor says Zuma is too old to spend so much time behind bars

"Jacob Zuma deserves a pardon. He is 78 years old and has been poorly advised, mainly by people who sought only to exploit him for their own ends. 15 months in prison is like a death sentence for him. It is very harsh. Cyril must act.

"Carl Niehaus, Schabir Shaik, Julius Malema, Atul Gupta and Dali Mpofu are fine examples of self-interested exploitation of Jacob Zuma. Add to that all the RET fanboys who traded on their proximity to him. See, M Gigaba and a dozen other cabinet ministers and premiers," the post reads.

@onlydigitalvibe said:

"I totally agree with you but his pardon must come with conditions. He must apologise and tell all, truthfully. Then others who he'll implicate (where there's proof) must get arrested. That will solve many problems for our country and corruption won't come as a common thing."

"Wena you are promoting your practice and nothing else."

"So if you are over 70 you can make as much kak as you please (even bring a whole country to its knees) and get away with it? I don't think so..."

Briefly News also reported that Duduzile Zuma recently headed online to assure her father's supporters that he is still in high spirits despite the fact that he was given 5 days to hand himself over to the police after being found guilty of defying the ConCourt.

Taking to Twitter, Zuma's daughter Dudu shared a snap of her dad sharing a happy laugh with his spokesperson. Admittedly, Zuma's smile does not look like the smile of a man who is soon headed to prison.

"How @PresJGZuma's Day Is Going With His Spokesperson @MzwaneleManyi," the post was captioned.
