Words you will hear today: Meandos (Zuma)

President Jacob Zuma appears to have trumped the art of made-up words, beating Donald Trump at his own game.

On Thursday, Zuma faced a number of hard questions from opposition parties in his final question and answer session for the year.

Responding to DA leader Mmusi Maimane's criticism of Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini and her apparent incompetence, the President responded with a rather peculiar word or idiom?? No one knows.

Khabazela (Jonathan Fairbairn) has come up with his own definition.

So twitter thinks he said you come with Nandos, I come with meandos.
