Social media users react to the Zuma Foundation's tweet
"@JGZ_FoundationThe "best constitution in the world" has jailed a 79 years old man with comorbidity without a trial.
Yesterday was president Zuma.
Today who is going to be their next target?"
"The part "Without trial" raises more questions about the future of the country. All citizens must reflect on this and ask themselves what if this happens to me in the future? It is not something to be taken lightly."
"Did you say tragedy? Jacob Zuma literally shot himself in the foot, by being obstinate and unreasonable. He could have just complied and it would have been all over by now!"
Throwback to the JZ video that got SA in stitches
His antics got many falling over their chairs, members of parliament included, even when the most serious issues were being unpacked.
A social media user has taken to reviving an old video of the former president bedazzling his politician colleagues during one such parliamentary sitting. South Africans at large, at the time, reacted in hysterics.
