Barely 24 hours after a court issued a warrant of arrest against South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma, the ex-leader seem to be making a daring statement with a photo that has now gone viral on twitter. This is happening shortly after his lawyer claimed he was severely ill and being victimized.
Zuma took social media by storm on Wednesday evening after he posted a picture of himself on Twitter sitting next to a quad bike, while aiming a gun.
The tweet came as speculation continued around his health and whereabouts.
While no caption is attached to the picture, Zuma looks to be in high spirits.
It is unclear where or when the picture was taken and if Zuma tweeted the picture himself or whether someone with access to his account posted it.
However, followers have brought into question Zuma’s condition, saying he does not look sick in the picture.
This follows controversy around a sick note Zuma’s legal team provided to Judge Dhaya Pillay after he failed to appear for his corruption case in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday.
There was speculation that Zuma was in Cuba while others said he was at his homestead in Nkandla.
