  • Jacob Zuma says ‘I hope the AFCON is won by an African team this time’
    Posted by on Jan 19th, 2013

    Haha…thoroughly enjoyed this little mouth fart by SA President Jacob Zuma who was quoted as saying on national tv that he hopes the African Cup of Nations is won by an African team this year.

    FAIL.

    The AFCON 2013 soccer tournament is set to kick off today in Johannesburg with the Bafana Bafana set to play Cape Verde.

    The Zuma blunder has been reported by BBC correspondent, Oluwashina Okeleji.

    Atta boy JZ…show them how we roll.

    “The President reportedly said on national TV that “I hope the Africa Cup of Nations is won by an African team this time”.

    Apparently, his media aides did not prep Zuma well for his Dame Patience moment, as the continental fiesta, is always competed for by African countries and is played on African soil.” [DailyPost]

    It’s a Nigerian publication so not sure about authenticity, but the blunder is going viral on social media plaforms ahead of kickoff today. If i find a video ill post it. Send if you’ve seen it.

    Yip, this is a hoax. He said something about him wanting an African country to win the World Cup.

    The saddest thing about this, is not “did he say it”, but that I, and I am sure many others, easily accept that our illustrious leader would say something as asinine as this.
