Zuma goes after President Cyril Ramaphosa in new book

IOL reports that one of the passages in Zuma's book takes a jab at President Cyril Ramaphosa for seemingly having directionless leadership in his current tenure.

The passage states that South Africa is without direction when it comes to issues such as land, poverty and inequality.

“With Ramaphosa at the helm for almost four years, South Africa appears directionless, almost lost on critical issues of landlessness, poverty, and inequality,” reads the passage.

Duduzile Zuma uses social media to promote Jacob Zuma’s new tell-all book

Briefly News previously reported that former president Jacob Zuma's tell-all book has been released and his daughter Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla is already promoting it.

The JZ Foundation described the book as "riveting" and it seems as though Dudu is trying her best to get the word out there. She shared a post on Twitter on Thursday evening posing with the book in front of her face. Once again, the internet showed division.

A large majority of commenters under Dudu's post complained that the book seemed too thin and a waste of time. The rest of the commenters are trying their best to figure out where they can purchase Msholozi's new book.
