Zuma was due to appear in the dock of the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Monday for his corruption case but ended up being a no-show.

The spokesperson for his foundation Mzwanele Manyi told journalists at court he was unwell and he was admitted to hospital, EWN reported.

However, reports later revealed that on Tuesday afternoon that Zuma was doing well and would be spending time with his family on his 80th birthday.

Scores of Mzansi online users flocked in on the post to share their witty comments and remarks in response to the tweet:

@CookGarth said:

“One normally refers to the class of a particular year either the year of completing school or graduating from university, not the year of birth!”

@Gjing_superman shared:

“I hear the President doesn't drink. I will be happy to hold onto that.”

@SinekeFez commented:

“Hawu is that all the Guptas could give uBaba after he helped them so much? They are in Dubai sitting there comfortably enjoying their loot whilst the enabler is just given a bottle of champagne. Not fair.”

@MapuleR1 wrote:

“Which Class? Sub A or STD 1? How far did he go to school? Yini sengathi kuphethe wena lapho eNkandla? Where are MaKhumalo and other wives? Maybe they must start praying for you to have a second husband so that you can leave them and uBaba in peace.”

@Rufuxinix replied:

“Yesterday he was so ill, I thought he was in the hospital. Rejoice, he’s not and never was. And he has recovered, just in time to celebrate his birthday. Hooray!”

@MulaudziTsikoo remarked:

“Did Ajay, Rajesh and Atul Gupta send birthday messages???”
