World Cancer Day is an international day marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. Multiple initiatives are run on World Cancer Day to show support for those affected by cancer.
One of these movements are #NoHairSelfie, a global movement to have “hairticipants” shave their heads either physically or virtually to show a symbol of courage for those undergoing cancer treatments.
Tweeps took to Twitter to talk about suffering or those close to them who have suffered from the horrendous disease.

It did not ask
if you were free
had finally figured out
if you would try golf
But even though
cancer doesn’t care
who you are –
rest easy today
as the war rages on
you are not cells
You are love.
Every day of your life.

On #WorldCancerDay I think of you. I think of the dad that fought strongly for 7 years to stay with his family. I think of the health care system that tired to save you. I think of the future where I will work my hardest to save other people like you. Cancer WILL end one day. pic.twitter.com/ZHc11YNe4L

Another hot topic is the corruption trial of former President Jacob Zuma.
This is after the Pietermaritzburg High Court issued a warrant of arrest for failure to appear in the arms deal corruption case.
Tweeps had a field day with opinions why he didn’t appear.

DID YOU KNOW?
Ever since the NPA was launched in 1996 it hasn't prosecuted a single ANC minister, premier or president for corruption?
