Zuma To Appear In Public For The First Time After Release From Jail

Former president Jacob Zuma who got released from jail on medical parole is set to be welcomed publicly as a prayer session is on cards.

Zuma is still not feeling well according to his family and his Foundation has revealed that there will be a national welcome prayer on the 14th of October to welcome the former head of state in Kwa-Zulu Natal.

"National Welcome Prayer on the 14 October 2021, the Foundation will be hosting a Welcome Prayer for H.E President Zuma in KZN.

Faith based, Religious Organisations and NGO's including all political parties are invited. Covid protocols will apply. Finer details will be Announced," the Foundation revealed.

The event is said to have been planned by ANC leaders in the Kwa-Zulu Natal to welcome Jacob Zuma publicly and also wish him well as he is not feeling well.

ANC veteran, Carl Niehaus said he will finally get to meet with the former president Jacob Zuma.

"Looking forward to welcome @PresJGZuma back, and to celebrate his indomitable spirit," he said.


It is alleged that this week's gathering by some ANC members in Kwa-Zulu Natal who went to welcome Zuma didn't see him as he did not come out to greet them.

His supporters had gathered outside his Nkandla home on Wednesday anticipating that he would address them and would get to see him after he spend close to two months in jail for contempt of court after he failed to appear before Zondo Commission and testify about state capture.

The South African National Civic Organisation youth congress’ KZN provincial co-ordinator, Thulani Gamede, said Zuma did not speak to his visitors, but they were happy in spite of that.

"It would have been great if president Zuma had addressed us, but we are happy to have spent the day here in Nkandla," he said.

The coming event is believed to be when Zuma will finally meet and greet his supporters.
