South African state President, Jacob Zuma, who just returned to work from a break after complaining about a pain at the back, is up for sale, at least that’s according to an advert posted on Gumtree, The Star reported today.
The tagline of the advert reads: “President for sale” with “negotiable” underneath. The advert was posted on 19 June 2014 by Average Joe whose Gumtree account has been active since January 2012.
The advert has since been taken off following massive social media circulation that sparked uproar, the newspaper reported.
The content of the advert says “desperately in need of a functioning President. This one costs too much to maintain. Will take what we can get at the moment… Just make an offer.
“Or to swap for smarter/cheaper model. No chancers- only barcode ID holders or Tax payers please,” the advert said.
Presidential spokesperson, Mac Maharaj declined to comment, citing he has not seen the advert therefore would not be in a good position to pass a remark.
