Mzansi tells Duduzile to stop quoting Martin Luther King in family drama
Duduzile Zuma is standing beside her father Jacob Zuma come hell or high water. The young lady recently headed to Twitter to show her support for her dad in a tweet in which she shared Martin Luther King Jr excerpt quote from his "When Peace Becomes Obnoxious” speech.
In the caption of her post, she also stated that they (assumedly her father and his family) were not afraid of cowards, also adding that they are not afraid of boers and ending off the caption by saying that they are waiting and their gate is open.
Some people told her to stop quoting the legend.
“Stop quoting Dr Martin Luther King in your family shenanigans...it's embarrassing!" one person commented.
