Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma is a South African politician and was the fourth president of South Africa from 2009 to 2018. He is also referred to by his initials JZ and his clan name Msholozi. Jacob Zuma took office as South Africa's president in 2009 and resigned in 2010.In a nighttime announcement to the country on February 14, Jacob Zuma withdrew from the leadership of South Africa. The ruling African National Congress (ANC) and its huge legislative mandate moved rapidly to nominate Cyril Ramaphosa, the country's vice-president and incumbent governing party, to the position of head of the government. Zuma withdrew just because the ANC turned against him and demanded it, as he stated in his less-than-dignified televised address. As it looked out the window to the 2019 general elections, the ANC judged that Zuma had become too much of a major political issue.
A South African citizen who goes by the name of Vusi Khumalo pleads with the African National Congress to bring back Jacob Zuma because he believes that President Jacob Zuma was a horse that was pulling SA in the right direction. Give me Zuma any day. Zuma traveled from Cape Town to Cairo.
Below are some of the comments that were made by concerned South African citizens on Twitter.
These words will be said again after the next president takes over from Cyril, because by then all of today's problems will be multiplied yet again. because we are going downhill. So don't praise Zuma. There was a reason the country wanted him to step down. Things were bad then too.
Cyril Ramaphosa and his puppets say the opposite, because Cyril Ramaphosa is a messenger of the Apartheid Regime. The whites and Indians are the masters of our current South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa. I hoped he would make it easier for us to defend. It is becoming hard to sustain hopes based on guesses and assumptions about what may happen with no connection to anything done today. On unemployment and stunted economies, there is no plan, which means no idea of what needs to be done.
Do you think that if South Africa hadn't put pressure on Jacob Zuma, things would have turned out differently? Please leave your views in the comment section below.
