PewDiePie spends 11 minutes roasting Jacob Zuma and his difficulty with numbers

We’re used to Trevor Noah poking fun at South Africa’s politicians and especially Jacob Zuma, but now Sweden’s Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has taken up the mantle.

In a new video, the second-most subscribed to YouTuber dissects former President Jacob Zuma’s struggle with numbers. And there are a lot of clips. Kjellberg also tears apart Zuma’s belief that all continents fit within Africa, and his history of allegeations of corruption. Of course, Nkandla is also brought up.

“Maybe, just maybe, we need to be more careful with who we vote for in our democracies,” PewDiePie notes.

The 11 minute video, published on 4 June, has since racked up just under four-million views with 300 000 likes and 4000 dislikes.

Jacob Zuma’s yet to response to the video on his now famous Twitter account, and we somehow doubt that he will.

PewDiePie meanwhile is still yet to break the 100-million YouTube subscribers mark after T-Series, an Indian channel, became the first to crack the figure late last week.
