Former South African president Jacob Zuma recently received an award for the contribution he made for the education of a black child.
After stepping down as the head of state, many believed Zuma would be faced with a grim future that includes corruption trials and a legacy without any honour.
However, it appears things are getting better for the former president by the day. He has since stepping down made the most of his retirement and it appears he is even more popular now than he ever was.
Aside from scoring a record label deal and winning over ANC members at the party's 107th birthday celebrations, Zuma also received an award.
Taking to Instagram, one of his wives, Tobeka Madiba Zuma, shared a series of photos of uBaba being honoured for contributing to the education of a black child.
"Celebrating Excellence...COSAS Matric Awards for the Class of 2018. Thank you @cosas for the recognizing the contribution made by @presjgzuma kwi Education of a Black Child, heartwarming indeed #black #child #education #will #empower #you #economically," the former first lady captioned the post.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported previously President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed crowds at the birthday celebrations of the ANC party’s 107th birthday earlier this week where he surprised people by saying that former president Jacob Zuma is still the leader in the ‘broader ANC’.
