It feels like yesterday that the EFF threatened to disrupt the 2018 Sona if Jacob Zuma delivered it. Leading up to his resignation, uBaba faced increased pressure from the ANC and opposing parties to step down as the president.

It has been exactly a year today that Zuma made the decision to step down - one he said to have taken in the best interest of the ruling party.

In honour of his one year retirement anniversary, decided to take a look at what Msholozi has been up to these past 12 months.

1. Making time to enjoy simpler things in life

Following his retirement last year, reported photos were posted on social media which showed uBaba taking some much needed time off to enjoy himself.

Msholozi was photographed showing off his slingshot skills and tweeps had a field day with the images.

2. Zuma joins the Twitterverse

The former president nearly broke the internet after he joined Twitter. From tweeting his opinion on the land issues to clapping back at Fikile Mbalula for calling him out online.

Zuma even used himself as a meme, and it left Mzansi in stitches.

3. uBaba, the soccer star

Zuma posted a video of himself on his Twitter page which showed him showing off his soccer skills as he played football with a group of kids.

He had a hilarious caption for the video: "Someone tell Stuart Baxter I’m match fit @BafanaBafana."

4. Zuma, the family man

Since his retirement, Zuma has had a lot more free time to spend with his family. One of his wives, Tobeka Madiba Zuma, often shares images of their quality family time on her Instagram account.
