- Jacob Zuma has commented on the tense political climate in Mzansi
- The former president shared a cryptic post in isiZulu on social media
- Many were left begging for a translation
Jacob Zuma broke his social media silence today when he expressed his thoughts on the recent political developments. Without naming anyone specifically, the former President used various Zulu expressions to describe just how terrible the situation is.
He said that things are bad in the country and someone would be paying the ultimate price for their actions. Because the tweet was in isiZulu, many social media users asked for a translation. Twitter user IndWorldThinker came to the rescue and roughly translated the tweet:
"Everything is falling apart. And those involved will have to live with the consequences. Actually bad consequences."
Twitter user FellowAfricans said:
"I don’t know what it means but I know it is related to the political status quo."
"One tweet from uBaba the nation goes into coma."
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za reported that Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane insists that there had been nothing untoward in the way she collected information in her investigation of Ramaphosa's BOSASA debacle. The president had approached the High Court to have parts of the Public Protector's submission sealed off from the public. Ramaphosa's legal team had raised concerns about possible unlawfulness on Mkhwebane's part. Public Protector spokesperson Oupa Segalwe has insisted that the entity had carried out the probe by the book.
