What a G. 😭

Actress Samkelo Ndlovu was relieved to see the back of Zuma, along with fellow actress Omuhle Gela, who thought the ex president loved to play victim.
Sad to see him go. Eish 💔 But happy that we have shown the world once again that we live in a country where no man or woman is bigger than the movement.
I may have felt sorry for him during his speech and hearing him saying he's resigning - but I'm not sad that he's gone.
But he needed to go though, we have been desperate for new and better leadership for ages now. Ewu🙆🏾 please let this be a new better era for us, SA has been through the most guyzini.
