Former South Africa President Jacob Zuma has recorded a video message to announce that he had joined Twitter.

“I have decided to move with times to join this important area of conversation because I hear that many people are talking about me as well as others calling themselves Zuma.” The Ex- South Africa President said.

He says he felt it was necessary to join and be part of the “conversation”.

Most of the Twitter users who have responded to his message have welcomed him to the platform with many saying “welcome baba”.

In his second post, Mr Zuma debunked a tweet from an account alleging that a bank account has been set up to raise money for him.

A court ruled on Thursday that Mr Zuma must pay back the money provided for his legal fees.

It is estimated that the state has paid between $1m (£792,000) and $2.2m in legal costs for him as he battles fraud, corruption and money laundering charges.

The 16 charges stem from hundreds of payments made to him in relation to a 1990s arms procurement deal.

Mr Zuma denies any wrongdoing
