On Tuesday, a Jacob Zuma supporter took to Twitter to claim that journalist and producer, Redi Tlhabi, made advances at the former SA president at a hotel.
According to the tweep, @Blzwelethu, uBaba shot the journo down and it had her feeling a "little rejected".

The post managed to get a reaction from Tlhabi who shot down the rumours harder than the tweep claimed Msholozi shot her down.
"I don't know a single woman journalist who hasn't been accused of wanting this or that politician when they write or speak about them. Women just want them," she said with a couple of laughing emojis.
Tlhabi added a bit more spice to her fiery clapback, writing:
"I think if you are going to go there..get the spec right at least. I like tall, lean, athletic and educated men."
South Africans could not handle Tlhabi's savage response and they were left in stitches by her indirectly calling Zuma stubby and uneducated.
Tlhabi's book has been criticised by both uBaba's fans and the former head of state himself. According to the Citizen, in July Zuma said there was a conspiracy against him.
Msholozi said it was a coordinated attempt to "character assassinate” him, and he claimed the journalist was working on a film adaption of her book.
However, Briefly.co.za laughed off Zuma's claim she's working on 'Raped by Power' film.
