In her tweet, she reminds the Pres that petrol has increased by R16 in less than a year, VAT has gone up and now we are sitting with load shedding.

She ends her tweet with a not-so-subtle reminder dig at him stating JZ never gave us so many problems in the nine years he was around.

Tweeps weighed in with their opinions on where the problems actually lie, and who is to blame.

While he is not the President’s greatest fan, leader of the Democratic Alliance, Mmusi Maimane gave JZ just as much stick when he was in office. reported how at one stage Maimane called for justice, stating "Tsotsi Zuma must go to jail".

So while it is true that South Africa did not sit with an increased VAT amount while Zuma was in office, there is still the fact that he is facing 783 charges of corruption.

Maimane had added that granting Zuma amnesty against charges of racketeering and corruption would undermine the constitution.

“How do you not humiliate Jacob Zuma? How do you not humiliate somebody who has humiliated our country? “He faces 783 charges of corruption, racketeering and I’m stating it here on record, I’m not going to drop that case against Jacob Zuma. He will end up in Johannesburg prison,” he said.
