iReportAfrica: The nice lies of the courtiers

Zuma
Our dearly beloved leader shares many traits with Swaziland’s King Mswati III.

So much so that a fake news story about them earlier this year circulated quickly and was believed by many people.

The story, quoting sources close to the Swazi royal house, claimed that Mswati was going to reward President Jacob Zuma with three virgins.

The reward was for the South African government managing to gets its matrics to achieve a 72.5% pass rate.

“This is a major achievement compared with the other years. It shows that Zuma is a hard-working man and he leads by example.

"The youth look up to him, that’s why they managed to get such a good percentage. To congratulate the president for the good work he has done, I will send him three beautiful virgins by the end of next week,” Mswati was quoted as saying.

Despite this obviously being an early April Fools’ joke, many took it seriously. This shows just how easy it has become to believe the most outrageous things about Zuma.

If those who believed the fake story had witnessed Zuma and Mswati in Durban this week, they would have had an “I told you so” grin on their faces.

Our leader and his randy friend danced up a storm at the World Economic Forum mokete.

When he hit the dance floor with his friend, Zuma was a man seemingly without worries.

This was not a man whose nose had just been bloodied by the Pretoria High Court, which ruled that he must provide the DA with his reasons for the dramatic Cabinet reshuffle in March.
