Former president Jacob Zuma may not be everyone’s favourite, but he is clearly a strong contender in the father-of-the-year category according to most on social media.
Zuma posted a video of him sparring with his son Duduzane in the foyer, and as a result, yanked the heartstrings of many on social media. The video posted on Monday is captioned: “He who hesitates, meditates in a horizontal position – Ed Parker.” This is not the first time the former president has shown the public glimpses into his intimate time with his son.

In January, Zuma posted a photo of himself and his son posing like boxers. The photo appeared shortly after Duduzane began his culpable homicide trial.
Both Zumas are enduring a string of court cases this year. Zuma faces corruption charges and Duduzane faces culpable homicide charges after his car was involved in a deadly crash with a minibus taxi five years ago.
Social media appears to think Zuma is an example of what being a father should look like.
This is beautiful President.
