- Jacob Zuma arrived back in South Africa over the weekend after receiving medical treatment in Cuba
- uBaba sported a pair of dark sunglasses inside the airport and radio host Eusebius McKaiser threw shade at Zuma
- While some found the tweet funny, others defended the former head of state, adding he was unwell
On Saturday, former President Jacob Zuma returned to South Africa after reportedly receiving medical treatment in Cuba and his supporters were at the airport, ready to give him a warm welcome.
Zuma showed up at the airport sporting a pair of sunglasses as he walked to his vehicle surrounded by devoted fans chanting his name.
While many were focussed on uBaba's well-being, especially with the situation with the High Court looming over his head, Eusebius McKaiser took notice of the former president's shades.
The outspoken radio host wrote on Twitter:
"Zuma thinks his future is SO bright that he has to wear shades indoors even."
South Africans were divided on McKaiser's tweet; some felt Zuma would finally face the music while others slammed the radio host for shading a sick man.
Twitter user, @Kgapolad, commented:
"The man is sick. Go play elsewhere."
Another tweep, @John36651743, added:
"He has eye problems. Let's not hate, let's look at the facts."
Social media user, @Modipi_87, wrote:
"But he doesn't look well, let's not be insensitive."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported previously reported Msholozi was focussing on his health now that he's back in Mzansi.
Zuma said that he isn't fearful of going to court or even ending up in jail after returning to South Africa from Cuba, however, he highlighted his health a priority in the face of his numerous legal challenges.
