Roses are red, Violets are blue…Jacob, don’t for a second think, we’ll cry over you.

While everyone is receiving beautiful red roses and chocolates, South Africa is ending a 9 year (very) long relationship with President Jacob Zuma. Now, if only he can accept the break-up and move on. It’s not us Zuma, it’s you! Let’s just kiss and say goodbye.

Some South African citizens took to social media today to show him love on Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day has become quite a ‘dramatic’ day for South African’s,  Oscar Pistorius killed model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day 5 years ago. Today, Zuma said he doesn’t know what he did wrong and will not resign until the ANC tell him.

Zuma’s presidency has been likened to a really bad ‘soapie’ that you really don’t want to watch, but you can’t seem to look away.

Then there’s the a season finale, and you think this is it, the main guy left, NO, there’s another season!
