- Duduzane Zuma has lashed out at his detractors via Twitter
- Zuma defended his business dealings with the Guptas saying it was not a sin to do business with the family
- He blasted EFF leader Julius Malema for saying he was not a South African because he was born in Mozambique
Former president Jacob Zuma’s son Duduzane has broken his silence on a variety of topics and lashed out at his detractors. Duduzane sent out a series of Tweets in recent days.
Duduzane questioned why he had been dragged into the picture surrounding the criminal investigation into the business dealings of the infamous Gupta brothers.
Duduzane is miffed at being criticised for doing business with the Guptas. He seemingly defended the brothers when he tweeted that people do business with governments all the time, but now it had become an issue.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Duduzane also refused to appear before Parliament to deliver testimony in the state capture inquiry. He said he had not been subpoenaed and called on media outlets to get their facts straight.
Zuma’s son also defended his father saying Zuma snr was being unfairly treated for mistakenly using public funds for upgrades at his Nkandla home. Duduzane also questioned why his father was being prosecuted when apartheid criminals still roamed free.
Duduzane also took on Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema who on several occasions said Duduzane was not a South African citizen because he and his twin sister were born in Mozambique.
Duduzane said he was born outside of South Africa because his father was still in exile at that time. He said Malema suffered from historical amnesia.
Duduzane congratulated Vladimir Putin on winning a fourth term as president of Russia.
