BREAKING: Zuma resigns

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))
