A waiter in Pietermaritzburg has found instant fame after his surname was used in the butt of a joke about former president Jacob Zuma having a side job in a restaurant.

A picture of a bill, with 'Jacob Zuma' listed as the server, was shared across social media this week by Redi Tlhabi and had fans in fits of laughter.

The former 702 radio host was in town ahead of the Comrades Marathon on Sunday and couldn't help but share the joke with her followers.

The restaurant's management told TshisaLIVE that the name was used as an inside joke to name one of the waiters whose surname was Zuma and was a once off occurrence.

Meanwhile the internet was in tears guessing that Msholozi might need the extra coins if he's going to be paying his legal bills.

One follower even joked that they phoned the restaurant and was told Msholozi had knocked off after his night shift.

The former president was in the Durban High Court last Friday where his corruption trial was once again postponed.

Prosecutor Billy Downer told the court that in essence the state was ready to proceed with the corruption trial against Zuma but there were a number of preliminary issuesโ€š including the former president's application for a review of the decision to charge him.
