Social media users have taken to Twitter to celebrate former president Jacob Zuma using the hashtag #ZumaAppreciationDay.
Recently Zuma has made headlines for his defiance to appear before the Zondo commission to testify.
This has resulted in a lot of people sharing their opinions on what the government should do about the situation.
It has also resulted in a Julius Malema offering Zuma and olive branch as they met on Friday, what they spoke about it not clear but the event raised quite a few eyebrows.
Here are some of the posts circulating online using the hashtag #ZumaAppreciationDay:
"When Zuma was president, government employees would get double-digit annual salary increases, now they get told no increase cause they looted covid19 money. We were without loadshedding, now we are loadshedding 3 times a day #ZumaAppreciationDay"
"Tito Mboweni is mad. Selling out is when you betray your own people. (Something he's been doing since 1993)."
"Malema and Zuma put away their differences and had a conversation. It takes principled men to do that. Something that's foreign in Mboweni's world."
"Msholozi is still not appearing at the state capture commission. Nothing has changed. We appreciate you Msholozi and we are behind you #ZumaAppreciationDay."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that it was probably the most anticipated tea party in South African history. Julius Malema had offered to have tea with Zuma to discuss recent development regarding the Zondo commission.
It was the last thing Mzansi was expecting and many people doubted that it would ever actually happen but today, Malema visited Zuma at his home in Nkandla and they had tea.
The Economic Freedom Fighters shared the pics of the "tea party" with South African and Mzansi reacted to the snaps.
In other news, former president Jacob Zuma has reportedly instructed ANC Youth League (ANCYL) members in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal not to prevent Julius Malema from entering his home in Nkandla.
Zuma received intel that some members of the ANCYL were planning to block the EFF leader from accessing his homestead. Zuma and Malema, who have not been seeing eye to eye since Malema was expelled from the ANCYL, agreed to meet over tea on Friday, 5 February.
The country went into a frenzy when the two political rivals agreed on Twitter to have tea together and discuss some of the issues currently facing Mzansi.
