Former President Jacob Zuma has been spotted in economy class and not first class on a commercial flight.
Facebook user Simon Hodgson has posted a picture of himself and Jacob Zuma smiling on a Kulula plane.
Hodgson who was flanked by his six-year old son Matthew on his left‚ was left momentarily speechless when Zuma politely asked him to remove his can of cold drink that he placed on the seat to his right‚ while he put on his seat belt.
“I looked up and there stood Jacob Zuma. It took me a few minutes to realise that he was coming to sit next to me in economy class. It was an unexpected start to my Wednesday‚” the father of two said.
Meanwhile, Cyril Ramaphosa, current President of South Africa, also showed that he is not afraid to fly with the masses. He was spotted on a commercial flight over the Easter weekend.

Next time you board a commercial flight, keep your eyes wide open – you never know who you’ll end up sitting next to!
