Images of former President Jacob seen out and about at Sibaya Casino in Durban have caused significant online controversy, with many questioning the state of his secret sickness and parole. Zuma was seen exiting the casino with loyalists, including former SAA head Dudu Myeni, last Friday. According to the Sunday Times, Zuma was photographed in public for the first time after being given release after being sentenced to 15 months in prison for defying a Constitutional Court ruling.
It was informed that Zuma will be conducting a "meeting" at the casino owned by his pal, Durban businessman Vivian Reddy. The encounter comes after Zuma informed a throng gathered outside his Nkandla homestead on Thursday that due to "extremely severe parole terms," he could only talk to them via video.
"Yes, I am still incarcerated, but under extremely stringent parole terms." "It seems like what home arrest and banning orders may have felt like under the colonial-apartheid regime," Zuma said to his followers. However, Singabakho Nxumalo, a spokeswoman for the Department of Correctional Services, stated that Zuma's casino visit was legal.
He stated that Zuma requested to leave his house and go to another town, which was authorized by his monitoring official. Zuma's daughter, Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla, responded to the news by saying her father was under house arrest. Last month, ANC deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte disputed the notion that Zuma would behave similarly to his former financial adviser Schabir Shaik after his release from prison. She stated that the ANC would be proven wrong if Zuma was photographed playing golf, among other things.
"I believe that various conditions apply to different situations. So, if every event has a certain narrative, we won't be able to comprehend what the reality is and what isn't," Duarte explained.
"While Schabir Shaik's behavior was reprehensible, we cannot presume that comrade Zuma is not unwell and would behave similarly to Schabir Shaik." That, I believe, is incorrect.
"All I'm saying is that the world is far broader than a single point of view." If there is an error, we will be incorrect. If we observe comrade Zuma going to play golf, for example, you are obviously correct and we are incorrect," she explained.
Many people commented on the photo on social media, with some comparing him to Shaik and others saying it is his business what he does. This is what people says on social medias
