I think the fact that President Zuma sleeps on the job is proof he is a good man because they say no rest for the wicked #amirite

Nice to know how important the state of the country is to Zuma. Or is it all those late nights blocking that report?

If Zuma can sleep whilst an important mid term budget speech is read, why should other Ministers and MPs not sleep while on duty? pic.twitter.com/lbrwt54lcs
