When Msholozi joined Twitter late last year, South Africa was both shocked and excited, bracing themselves for some more crazy antics and controversy.
The former president immediately had a huge following, with South Africans all eagerly waiting to see what hilarious gems an unfiltered Jacob Zuma would present to the nation’s Twitter users.
It wasn’t a long wait, fortunately, and only a month later, Mr. Zuma quickly unleashed his views on the land expropriation issue, firing up social media.

Msholozi has 181k followers.
