Duduzane Zuma wants to lead ANC and the country after Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma term

President Jacob Zuma’s billionaire son Duduzane plans to lead the ANC and the country in the next 10 years. According to sources close to the president’s son, he has been bragging to his close associates that he will lead the country when his stepmother steps down in 2029.


Duduzane’s stepmother is one of the leading contenders for ANC’s top position which will see her move to Union Buildings in 2019 should she emerge victorious. Her biggest contender is the current ANC and South Africa’s deputy president, Cyril Ramaphosa.

“The Zuma’s are planning to capture the ANC and the state. Their immediate goal is to push Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to the highest office at Luthuli House in December this year and Union Buildings after 2019 general elections,” said our sources who is close to the president’s son’s circle.

“Duduzane plans to succeed his stepmother when she steps down after serving two terms. He has amassed enough financial resources to fund his campaign when the time arrives. What he doesn’t realise is that the ANC won’t be in power in near future. They have been shedding electoral support consistently since his father became the president,” added the source.

Duduzane has never been actively involved in ANC politics. His half-brother Edward is the one who participate in ANC branch politics. Earlier this year he contested and lost for the branch chairmanship position in his Msholozi branch.

He is currently leading the call to have the leadership of his branch to be nullified. It is alleged that the branch, which is named after his clan name Msholozi, is supporting the current deputy president to take over from his father.
