Jacob Zuma recently described himself as an elder on his way out. He said this at his yearly Christmas party in Nkandla. He told the party guests that he is close to becoming an ancestor himself.
Jacob Zuma had his guests worried during his yearly Christmas party held at his hometown of Nkandla in KZN.
He told the guests that elders should be well taken care of before they become ancestors.
The elders need respect and love while they are alive so they can protect us when they are ancestors. No one wants angry ancestors.
Zuma then added that he is on his way to becoming one himself.
This left some of the senior guests worried about who will take care of them, as reported by TimesLIVE.
Zuma said that as long as he is still around, the Christmas parties for young and old will continue.
There were doubts that the parties, of which two are planned, would still take place after Zuma was informed that he has to pay his own legal bills.
However, the former SA leader said the parties were planned long before and were always scheduled to take place.
Briefly.co.za gathered that for the past 10 years, Zuma has been playing 'Santa' and gave out food, blankets and toiletries to the elders while he gave goodies and treats to the children.
It seems that the former president is becoming even more popular since he joined Twitter, and if he really does become an ancestor in the near future, he will be dearly missed.
