Jacob Zuma a chess master? Well, according to popular Twitter influencer, Man's Not Barry Roux, Zuma was learning to play chess while his comrades studied law while detained at Robben Island.
@AdvBarryRoux posted on the social network:
"Never forget that when his comrades were studying for law degrees on Robben Island, Jacob Zuma was learning to become a Chess master. He’s the number one chess player in the ANC every move he makes is well calculated and weighed up. Always the strategist. Msholozi is smart."
While some understood that the influencer's tweet was tongue in cheek, others jokingly pointed out that before Msholozi joined Twitter, @AdvBarryRoux used to love bashing the former president.
@lesiba_thabetha commented: "When he was in the money, he adopted a Stalingrad strategy to delay facing corruption charges, then BOOM, the Law studying judges pulled a rag under Msholozi's feet, and now he must pay his legal fees. Damn u Baba is a genius."
