Sunday Observer - - NEWS - OHANNESBURG - Pre­pared Spec­u­la­tion

JPres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma's wife Thobeka MadibaZuma has sug­gested in a post on so­cial me­dia plat­form, In­sta­gram that he will not go down with­out a fight.

Re­fer­ring to Zuma as her "ev­ery­day crush," the first lady said: "Umsholozi did not join the ANC in 1991, jumped ship nor hip hopped be­tween the strug­gle and wealth ac­cu­mu­la­tion.

"He left his home at a ten­der age to fight apartheid. He was pre­pared to pay the ul­ti­mate price. He will fin­ish what he started be­cause he does not take or­ders be­yond the At­lantic Ocean."

Madiba-Zuma posted the mes­sage with the hash­tag #mat­ter­soft­hestom­ach. She uses Zulu in parts of her post which, trans­lated, sug­gests "things are about to get ugly" and "don't fight some­one who is not fight­ing with you."

Spec­u­la­tion is rife that Zuma's res­ig­na­tion as the coun­try's Pres­i­dent is im­mi­nent with the African Na­tional Con­gress (ANC) hav­ing post­poned events that are tra­di­tion­ally hosted af­ter the State of the Na­tion Ad­dress (SONA).

This week, SONA was post­poned (it was s up­posed to have oc­curr e d Thurs­day), with a new date for the an­nual event yet to be set.
