It has been a few days since former president Jacob Zuma was rumoured to have snubbed President Cyril Ramaphosa’s inauguration for unclear reasons.

And while the show must go on, Jacob Zuma is said to be recovering in bed from flu.

His wife Tobeka Madiba-Zuma took to social media to share an intimate moment between him and her during his recovery. In the pictures you can see what seems like the couple's feet and them enjoying breakfast in bed courtesy of their children. 

“Every day I feel is a blessing from God. …Even though life is not always easy to live, but the opportunity to do so is a blessing beyond comprehension. I walk in a space of gratitude. Breakfast served in bed because Mom and Dad are trying to shake this terrible flu off. Thanks to our beloved daughters,” wrote Tobeka.
