Former President Jacob Zuma is not everyone's favourite in Mzansi and he's been accused of many things, such as corruption and fraud. A man who visited Kazakhstan on the other hand shared how the country's residents love Msholozi.

The man (@MajuvuThabiso) said on Twitter that Kazakhstan's citizens respect Jacob Zuma on another level.

"In Kazakhstan they love and respect President Jacob Zuma," he declared.

He also said that the reason why they love Zuma so much is because of the role he played in shaping their politics.

"There are hotels and conference stations named after President Zuma, even in some places in Japan," he added.

Mzansi social media users flocked to the post and commented on the man's claims:

@BrettSusan4 said: "Zuma means lightening bolt in Japanese and is the name of a restaurant in Kazakhstan. No link to our former President."
@RheektheOnly1 said: "Must be nice being them, considering he has shaped the SA political landscape for the worst."
@LutherKR_ said: "We have to be honest. JZ is the main reason why BRICS failed and thus why China became a powerhouse amongst "developing" countries. Yes China owes him a lot but South Africa doesn't."
@Av_mabetshe commented: "It's a pity that he stole from us, now it's difficult to respect him."
