Kwaito musician L'vovo has joined the masses in saying #ItWasNeverJacobZuma. The hashtag has been trending on social media since early Thursday morning.
The media personality, who has been vocal about politics recently, has been part of the group of social media users who made the movement trend.
Briefly.co.za reported that tweeps flooded social media with their views on the current leadership of the ANC and many said uBaba was not to blame for the problems in SA.
It resulted in #ItWasNeverJacobZuma trending on Twitter as South Africans shared their views on the current state of affairs. L'vovo filled his timeline with retweets from people missing Jacob Zuma. He tweeted:
"It was never Jacob Zuma. Finally people know! Great news!"
Although the hashtag is gaining momentum, social media users had mixed reactions to L'vovo's tweet. Twitter user Mabaso_iv said:
"All of a sudden he's an angel, come on, just because ANC gets worse under the new leadership you now portray the older leadership as angels, be serious and stop being in denial, if you don't wanna blame ANC vote for another party, simple."
"Okay... But Jacob Zuma was a president for almost 10 years. Now tell me what did he do for South Africans?"
"He was part of it, he built the foundation, the corruption culture is still there even if he's no more. #ANCMustFall"
"He had opportunity to fix it but he decided to ignore everything."
