- Duduzane Zuma's arrival at a Pietermaritzburg High Court caused a frantic media circus with many journalists rushing to catch a snap of the businessman
- He counts himself amongst Jacob Zuma's top supporters who have arrived in court today
- Mzansi social media users criticised the excessive number of bodyguards and the complete disregard for social distancing protocol
Duduzane Zuma has caused quite the media frenzy, arriving at the Pietermaritzburg High court accompanied by a troop of bodyguards. The businessman counts himself amongst some of Jacob Zuma's top supporters who, in a show of solidarity, have arrived at the Zondo Commission.
A short clip of the frantic incident was caught on video by journalist @ietskaylo.
"Duduzane Zuma has just arrived at Pietermaritzburg High Court. Security is extra tight today as the media scrum with the arrival of Jacob Zuma's top supporters," she captioned the post.
While many social media users have raised their eyebrows at Zuma's large entourage, others not surprisingly are wondering why social distancing protocols are being completely ignored.
Check out some of their comments below:
"Just look at them! No social distancing! Disgraceful behaviour..."
"Super spreaders at work?"
"Why does he get so many bodyguards?"
"Gang of thieves!"
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that South African businesswoman and former SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni has snubbed the Zondo Commission Inquiry into State Capture and failed to appear.
Myeni was served a summons by the Commission but still did not arrive to give her testimony. Her legal representatives said that Myeni was told that she still had to appear at the Commission, even after she asked for a postponement.
She said that she could not be present because she was not based in Gauteng. Myeni asked if there could be another date that she appears and her lawyer asked if she could rather make her testimony through an online video call.
According to a report by News24, Myeni says she needs more time to respond to the arguments that have been given to her. She wants to respond in the best way that she can.
Myeni refused to answer questions posed to her by her State Capture Commission back in November, according to TimesLIVE.
She argued that she didn't want to risk incriminating herself.
