[LISTEN] Words you will hear: ZuMpshe

ZuMpshe, a combination of Zuma and Mpshe, means to start over or reset.

Jonathan Fairbairn explains how you can use the word, especially made up in context of the National Prosecution's change of heart over the decision to withdraw criminal charges against President Jacob Zuma.

Now the NPA want to make representation to the NPA and start all over again, so the words for today is ZuMpshe. To strat over or reset.
