BREAKING: Zuma resigns

By SowetanLIVE | Apr 01, 2014 |

President Jacob Zuma had announced this morning that he is stepping down from his office duties.

Following the recent Nkandla scandal, Zuma had said that he is calling it quits as he cannot handle the pressure following recent events.

"Dear citizens of South Africa and comrades in Parliament, I hereby announce my resignation to you.

Due to the recent Nkandla report, and various attacks towards me, I simply cannot defend myself any longer.

I sincerely hope that your future will be in good hands.

Regards, JZ

Please note: This is an April Fool's Joke. The President did not resign and he had not said any of the above. Have a great day further. The SowetanLIVE team. ((BOOYAH))

Too bad you guys at Sowetan have such a poor sense of humour. Daft joke I'd say. Clearly you haven't got one 'funny bone' in any of your employees. Shame.

Thanks Sowetan! We all had a feeling of joy and triumph even if it was for a few seconds only!! Great sense of humour!!

I read the headline, thought no ways, remembered it's April 1, and then read the article. Just for a split second there, Sowetan, you had me thinking ANC might just return to be a great party again. At least I was ecstatic for a split second today.

SOWETAN: Well done. You certainly got me there. For a few minutes you had me going. But then that nagging voice reminded me that this arrogant thief HAS TO stay in, else he is open to a whole lot of prosecutions. It's life or death for him. He will NEVER resign!

@Oldlady and Robinx But really when has Sowetan ever broke any news? They always last to publish and they copy and paste so really you couldnt have missed it if it was for real.

Sowetan's lazy journalists always sit under a tree and wait to plagiarise the hardwork of other journos a day later. Like ruri now :)
