Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Duduzile Zuma has had quite a busy few weeks on Twitter. When she was not pledging her allegiance to her dad Jacob Zuma who has been embroiled in ConCourt and Zondo Commission drama, she was sharing clips of him chanting war songs.
This time JZ's daughter has headed online to laugh at her dad who can be seen in a number of pictures wearing the exact same shirt every time he "had tea" with prominent South African figures such as Julius Malema, Cassper Nyovest, and Bheki Cele.
"I heard there’s a @PresJGZuma ‘tea’ shirt challenge," she captioned the various pics of Zuma in his black and gold patterned shirt.
