Jacob Zuma’s unavailability to appear before Zondo Commission sparks conversation on Twitter

Published on

Jacob Zuma’s response to the request for him to appear before the Zondo Commission has sparked conversation on Twitter, with some comparing the media’s commentary on his response to Pravin Gordhan’s.

Jacob Zuma’s response to the request for him to appear before the Zondo Commission was circulated on social media on Monday, 31 August 2020. According to the media, the former president is represented by Mabuza Attorneys, who stated that he is unavailable for the proposed date of Wednesday, 9 September 2020.

His response has been compared to that of Pravin Gordhan’s, in which he reportedly sent an intern on the day to state that he was “too busy.” The comparison between the two political figures’ responses became topical on Twitter as some questioned the media’s handling of their narratives and individual responses.

Some suggested that Zuma is continually vilified by the media as part of the RET faction, while Gordhan’s response was not as heavily scrutinised. This is allegedly because of Gordhan’s interaction with the media as part of Ramaphosa’s faction.
