The controversial daughter of former President Jacob Zuma, Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla, says spending time with her father was a bittersweet moment for her. The arrested former head of state was given compassionate leave to attend his brother’s funeral.
Following their short-lived reunion, the former first daughter took to social media to reflect on the meeting, saying it was a sad day for the family as they paid their final tributes to “Bab’ Mike”.
As usual, South Africans shared their comments where some people reminded the outspoken woman that her father invited all these problems for himself.
The post reads:
“But he slept in Estcourt correctional centre where he belongs.”
“We will never have anyone better than him. Not anytime soon, except for sellouts who were dressing and polishing shoes for whites whilst his peers were in exile.”
“What's wrong with his skin? Looks like he tried bleaching.”
“Please tell H.E JG Zuma we South Africans want him back as the President of the country. Ramaphosa is willing to give away Leadership to him. On behalf of all South Africans, we want President Jacob Zuma back as the Head of the State.”
“Sad that he was not wearing the RET colours. The famed orange overall.”
“I've heard that incarceration is taking a toll on him. Jimmy Manyi was quoted. Now, you say he is in good spirit. Who is lying?”
“Long live comrade Zuma we will put you in our prayers don’t forget as Zimbabweans we always remember you. You’re the first Black President in South Africa.”
“Your father shouldn't be humiliated like this if he could only put it in his head to obey the order of the highest court in the land. We love him and feel sorry for him to be going through this at his age.”
“Ubaba wethu madoda. We, his people & anyone who identifies with him, wish him well and all the strength to overcome all these tribulations.”
