Former finance minister Tito Mboweni has sent his well wishes to friend, brother and fellow comrade former president Jacob Zuma.
The ex-president was admitted to an outside hospital for medical observation earlier this month, where he ended up having a surgical procedure last Saturday.
Mboweni took to social media on Thursday to wish Zuma a speedy recovery.
“We have known each other for many years. Many years. Lesotho, Mozambique, UK, Zambia, Luanda and here at home. All of us fault at times, but, we can recover our historic glory. Get well my brother, friend and comrade,”Tweeted Mboweni.

Meanwhile, Zuma’s legal team met on Thursday evening to discuss his arms deal case. This follows after they wrote to Paul Mashatile to ask for the financial statements in an effort to prove that he didn’t benefit from the arms deal.
The ruling party responded in writing to inform Zuma that the documentation is no longer in the party’s possession because they were damaged or destroyed after a building in which they were archived was flooded.
However, his daughter Dudu Zuma-Sambudla is not convinced.
“Floods? Surely HQ has backup etc! Even if they don’t, I would assume the ANC would have a private banker who can send them the required information, or maybe @PresJGZuma’s legal team should subpoena the banks? We wouldn’t want ANC records leaked! Did ANC benefit from the arms deal?”
