“At Last #ZumaHasFallen,” -Cartoonists Give Jacob Zuma Hilarious Send-off


South Africa’s immediate past president, Jacob Zuma, may have left office but cartoonists ensured that they gave him a befitting send-off.

Along with the hashtag #ZumaHasFallen, cartoonists and twitter users poked fun at the fourth president of South Africa. He resigned on Wednesday under the threat of legislative impeachment.

Zuma’s presidency has been one of the most scandal ridden in South Africa’s history. In his nine year leadership of the country, he has been dogged with multiple charges of corruption and misapplication of public funds.

In a televised statement he said he was quitting with immediate effect but said he disagreed with his ANC party’s decision.

The ANC had told him to step down or face a vote of no confidence in parliament.

The 75-year-old has been facing calls to give way to Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, the ANC’s new leader.

Mr Zuma, who has been in power since 2009, faces numerous allegations of corruption.

Earlier on Wednesday, police swooped on the Johannesburg home of the powerful and wealthy Gupta family with whom Mr Zuma has close ties.

Below are some of the cartoons mocking Zuma whose last words as president were ‘we will meet somewhere,’ as he giggled and walked away.
