Msholozi has numerous fans all over South Africa, but one toddler from Zikhuliseleni Crèche in northern KwaZulu-Natal is not one of them. The little girl closed the gate on Zuma and his comrades when they approached the crèche.
Jacob Zuma got snubbed by a girl who couldn't have been more than two years old during a recent door-to-door ANC election campaign.
Msholozi was in eSikhaleni in northern KZN when he got the gates of a crèche slammed in his face before he could enter.
The girl seemed unaware of who Zuma and the rest of his group was, and most likely wanted to keep strangers out of their yard. Someone taught this girl well.
Zuma probably realised that the girl is too small to really know him and he clearly found it funny that she'd try to lock him out of Zikhuliseleni Crèche.
As reported by The Sowetan, the shy girl was later encouraged to meet South Africa's former president while the other children chanted the ruling party's name.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Zuma tried to apply his famous charm when he talked to the girl, but she wouldn't bite, and simply ignored him.

Zuma spent much of Monday morning (15 April) talking to community members who invited him into their homes to talk about their issues.
With him were Mike Mabuyakhulu, ANC Deputy Chairperson, and Mduduzi Mhlongo, mayor of uMhlathuze Municipality.
