Former president Jacob Zuma says he has decided to “move with times” and join social media.
In his first tweet being a video recording of himself, Zuma 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,”
Zuma’s second tweet is about a bank account number, said to be used to raise funds for his legal fees, which Zuma claims is hoax.
The former president’s handle, @PresJGZuma, is the same for his brand-new Twitter, Instagram and Facebook fan accounts.
