You can't have The Joker without Batman ????
Imagine if Zuma did not engage in all these corrupt shenanigans what an inspirational success story his would have been. An uneducated young Zulu man who fought in the liberation of our people rises to become the President of SA.— Zondwa Njokweni (@ZondwaNjokweni) February 14, 2018
Very sad that power corrupts.#ZumaResigns
He resigned and my heart skipped a beat!!! His speech has touched me, hamba kahle msholozi! Even though we wanted this; we must admit a level of shock and disbelief. He respected the ANC's decision, one could even sense him being emotional. Siyabonga nxamalala #ZumaResigns pic.twitter.com/k4mtxfOKnA— Asante ???????? (@Bulelani_S) February 14, 2018
