POLOKWANE – When skimming through social media these days, the consensus is that majority of South Africans are upset about the current political situation in the country.
As the country continues to take part in national action with marches taking place in the capital city and other parts of South Africa, another way people get to share their opinions is by using social media and posting about relevant events and happenings.
On Wednesday, 12 April, instead of trending because of his 75th birthday, President Zuma’s name was in the top trending topics on twitter with the hashtag #WhyIHateZuma.
Here is what some users had to say:
#WhyIHateZuma He is proving that power can eliminate you from going to prison. No matter how many charges you face.

Tell us, do you think hashtags like this are justified in people getting their opinions across or do you think it was too harsh?
