ZUMA DECIDES TO ‘MOVE WITH TIMES’
FORMER president Jacob Zuma says he has decided to “move with times” and join various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Zuma’s first tweet is a video of himself, in which he says: “Hello, everyone. I have decided to move with times to join this important area of conversation because I hear that many people are talking about me.
“I felt it is necessary that I should join in and be part of the conversation.
“It’s me, the former president, Jacob Zuma,” he announces in the 45-second clip.
Zuma’s second tweet contains a reference to a bank account number, said to be used to raise funds for his legal fees, which Zuma claims is false. On Thursday, the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria ruled that Zuma would be personally liable for his legal fees.
The former president’s handle, @PresJGZuma, is the same for his brand-new Twitter, Instagram and Facebook fan accounts. He also has a personal Facebook account where he has to date added 21 friends. — News24. Jacob Zuma’s brand-new Twitter account.
