ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule has also taken to Twitter to express well-wishes for Zuma, coining the hash tag #ZumaDay.
The social media platform has been filled with messages of support from Zuma loyalists, who have called him a "true leader" despite the many allegations of his involvement in state capture.
My President, the love and respect many of us have for you can't be measured. You're the true son of the soil. A leader. May you live longer as we still need to learn a lot from you. Happy Birthday Nxamalala @PresJGZuma #ZumaDay #HBDZuma pic.twitter.com/R8FSCGxJZY— Sphithiphithi Evaluator (@_AfricanSoil) April 12, 2019
