Zuma has been slammed by many for not telling his supporters to adhere to Covid-19 restrictions when they came to support him at his Nkanda homestead on Sunday, 4 July. Zuma is appealing against his 15-month jail term. The former president told ANC supporters who gathered outside his home that he was there when the country fought for freedom.

In similar news, Briefly News reported that Big Zulu sparked quite the reaction when he made a firm stance regarding his political position. The musician posted a picture of his good friend Duduzane Zuma and pledged his support to the family amid the recent Jacob Zuma ConCourt drama.

The post was captioned:

“Ithambo lakith siyolifela. Nxamalala. (We will die for our brethren).”

Big Zulu and Duduzane have had a close relationship since December last year after the politician’s son helped the musician’s Imali Eningi song go viral.

Returning the favour, Big Zulu pledged his support to the Nxamalala clan even though it was met with mixed reactions from social media users.
