The ANC NEC’s decision to recall President Jacob Zuma was a big talking point for South Africans on Tuesday, and celebrities couldn’t resist having their say
Officials said during a briefing that they did not set a deadline on how long Zuma has to respond, but new media reports suggest he has until the end of today to resign or face being voted out of office by his own party.
There was mixed reaction to the recall announcement.
While many were happy that Zuma has fallen, others questioned the ANC’s timing.
Here’s what some of Mzansi’s stars had to say
Actress Pearl Thusi reacted to news that President Zuma would be recalled in a funny way. She shared a gif of Oprah Winfrey looking surprised and pleased.
“Former Pres Thabo Mbeki right now…” she captioned the gif.
