The son of former president Jacob Zuma’s, Duduzane, is causing a stir on digital platforms after trying to share his views in Sotho. Zuma is seen in a video clip, saying he is thirsty and hungry.
The young man seems to struggle to put his message across and has left many confused. However, some of the social media users are impressed with the effort.
Posted by @DanielMarven on Twitter, the account holder says the young Msholozi must try and learn the language.
The post reads:
“That's how baPedi are pronouncing IsiZulu words hahaha.”
“IsiZulu is more popular than Sepedi. Make a video speaking Zulu I want to hear.”
“This is not Sepedi to start with, in Sepedi we don't "kopa" we "kgopela".maybe you should be telling this to the Tswana people.we don't "batla dijo" we "nyaka dijo"."
“He’s trying, unlike the other tribe... Xhosa folks will never ever try.”
“He sounds like he's just been vaccinated.”
“He was actually trying to speak Sesotho.”
“He’s the only Zulu man I know that’s giving it a shot....Go to MTN rank and see if they are as open-minded as Dudu here.”
“Duduzane ke segatlhamela masisi, mogale wa monna tota,tsatsi lengwe o tla kgona go bua puo e sentle fela.”
“This one can't even speak isiZulu mos. I'm not surprised.”
“He was trying to speak Sesotho... Hwa tshaisa instead of Hwa tjhesa.”
Clip of Dudzane Zuma giving a speech at Nkandla has SA confused: “comrade coconut”
Taking a glance at the recent piece on Zuma, Briefly News reported that Duduzane Zuma is making waves on social media after completely butchering the isiZulu language - at least, that's the consensus on social media.
The aspiring politician was speaking to his comrades in KwaZulu-Natal and many South Africans couldn't help noticing the lack of fluency in his accent.
Twitter user @ThapeloMpomane first shared the clip online. He was definitely not holding back, saying Zuma's speech lacked oomph:
"#duduzane but there's no motivation in that chanting, it lacks that Shaka thing," he captioned the shady post.
