Jacob Zuma’s New Zulu Bible To Have 8 Commandments

MARIANHILL – President Jacob Zuma has donated R500 000 for the translation of the Bible into isiZulu through his Jacob Zuma Foundation.

“The Bible needs to be updated and incorrect translations need to be fixed,” Zuma said in a statement. Among these errors is the incorrect representation that there are ten Commandments contained in the Book of Exodus. The new Bible in isiZulu will feature only eight.

The two Commandments that won’t feature in the new Jacob Zuma Zulu Bible are “Thou shalt not steal” and “Thou shalt not commit adultery”.

Some critics have accused Zuma that he’s reshuffling the bible like it’s the cabinet, but he [Zuma] remains unrepentant. “The Bible is a holy book. That is why believers should get the gist of it as it is, and it needs to be translated properly,” Zuma continued.

The new Jacob Zuma Zulu Bible will reportedly also update certain verses in Leviticus. These new verses will contain the correct procedure to follow when one has to take a shower to wash off Aids after having had unprotected sex.

To compliment the poetry of David, The Book of Solomon will now also feature the love poems sent to the daughter of a friend and football team boss before she got pregnant.

Certain phrases in the Bible will be updated to feature more relevant terminology. For instance, the “Lake of Fire” in the Book of Revelation shall now be referred to as the “Fire Pool”.

At time of print it was still unclear if the new Jacob Zuma Zulu Bible will contain any verses codifying God’s decree that the ANC must rule until Jesus comes back. BN

  1. ZUMA IS AGAINST GOD AND HE WILL SURELY GET PURNISHED FOR THAT I REALLY FEEL SORRY FOR HIM.O LORD PLEASE LET HIM SEE THAT THE THING HE IS ABOUT TO DO IS AGAINST YOUR WILL

  3. Ey! I am an ANC supporter bt I think Mr president is makin a n ungoldly mistake on this one (bt I’m not sure abt the source’ s reliability) I support the idea tht he shld write his own bible instead.
