President Jacob Zuma’s troubles have just started after the ConCourt ruled the President should indeed pay back the money. The law abiding citizen was however quick to make a plan and make sure he gets every cent required. He was seen queuing at Durban’s Musgrave Centre Pick n Pay in a bid to try his luck in the powerball and powerball plus. The President refused to review his possible winning numbers.

Earlier today, a national alert warning gambling houses against an imminent invasion by a cash-strapped Zuma was  issued by the South African’s Who Shouldn’t Be Gambling Board. Wired via email and posted on various social media platforms, the report calls on casinos to be on the lookout for a bald man in his early seventies carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders


The board described Zuma as armed with taxpayers’ money and desperate to make “a boatload of money” over the next 45 days. Officials monitoring the situation said it was unclear which gambling games the president aims to target, but that “the easy types” like bingo and wheel of fortune could be vulnerable.

Various individuals who are expected to gamble on Zuma’s behalf have been identified and mugshots sent to all major casinos. These include Police Minister Nathi Nhleko, members of the Gupta family and any member of the ANC Youth League, although the board wasn’t too worried about them as they’re not expected to be of age to enter casinos yet.

Anyone with information regarding Zuma’s gambling habits can contact the authorities on 0800-PAY-BACK-THE-MONEY.
