- Jacob Zuma was recently issued with a warrant of arrest due to his absence from court
- The former president took to social media on Wednesday and shared a thought-provoking photo of himself
- Many found the cheeky pic to be hilarious, but others slammed Zuma for making a mockery of the judicial system
Love him or loathe him, it's hard to dispute that former president Jacob Zuma has a massive following within Mzansi.
Even on social media, often anything Zuma touches, turns into Twitter gold as many of his tweets often start trending.
However, things went to the next level on Wednesday as his most recent tweet attracted more than 11 000 likes within a few hours.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that the KZN High Court issued Zuma with a warrant of arrest for his absence in court.
Judge Dhaya Pillay found flaws in the sick note provided by Zuma's legal team, as it lacked some crucial information.
Judge Pillay's decision caused a stir, but it seems Ubaba is taking it all in his stride as he shared a cheeky response via Twitter.
Without saying a word, Zuma shared a photo of himself armed with a rifle and taking aim.
Briefly.co.za noted that many loved the show of defiance, but others felt Ubaba was making a mockery of the judicial process.
Jack (@unethicalz) saw the funny side:
"Ubaba wethu is giving them chest pains. danki baba."
Mzai (@nhlangothimzai) added,
"Let political analysts write what they like, let them write what they see, we know that they'll say you are sending a statement."
Diego_Chuene (@Diegochuene) wasn't impressed with Zuma's stunt:
"I thought you're sick."
