Harare- Zimbabweans have reacted to the political drama happening in South Africa and how similar former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe and South African president Jacob Zuma are being removed from the office of the presidency.
Zimbabaweans are observing this moment as a sense of deja vu.
Many Zimbabweans Tweeted their thoughts.
Business man and Church leader Shingi Munyeza tweeted, “South Africa is currently having its ‘ASANTE SANA’ moment.” That’s a reference to the words Mugabe used to end a highly-anticipated press conference in the wake of last year’s military takeover at which he was expected to resign but didn’t.
Others wondered whether the recall of Jacob Zuma will set a precedent for the next South African presidents.
South Africa is currently having its “ASANTE SANA” moment🤦🏽♂️.

I have weird respect for Jacob Zuma. Hate him or love him he plays the political game well.
One day we just woke up and Mbeki wasn't president. Just like that. Not so with JZ.

Does this mean any future South African President will always eventually be recalled or faces abrupt end to his second term? This is a dodgy constitutional order. Cyril Ramaphosa must know he also faces the same fate. I’d rather have the Zimbabwean situation.
