A user known only as Griffin said, “It is Jacob Zuma’s birthday and he is not in jail. South Africa has no balls,” while another user added:

“In case you are scared to wish Jacob Zuma a happy birthday on the probability that he will use it to get the ANC to give him another billion of our tax money you can wish the Teenage Ninja Turtles a happy prerequisite existence day.

Danile Malothane wanted to know if Zuma’s birthday was also under investigation. A user known only as Yaya asked netizens not to “get it twisted,” and said:

“We love Zuma as a person…not as a President. He was terrible at his job.”

Many Twitter users were also referring to Zuma as the only Black President South Africa ever had, as the country’s first Black President, and as a political genius.
