- A video allegedly shows Tumelo calling Duduzane "a fool" and "a monkey"

- President Ramaphosa has reportedly termed the video "extremely unfortunate"
President Cyril Ramaphosa's son, Tumelo Ramaphosa, allegedly calls Duduzane Zuma "a fool" and "a monkey" in a video that has gone viral. Duduzane is former President Jacob Zuma's son.
A Twitter user, @Outkassst, shared the video that apparently shows Tumelo inside a hotel room in Dubai, Briefly.co.za learned. Tumelo allegedly said:
I’m in Dubai… Dubai and State Capture; [he then laughs] where are all those fools like Duduzane and all those f****g monkeys? Anyway, people like me are blockchain specialists and economists.
Tumelo had reportedly posted the video on his Instagram page but later deleted it. However, the video's origin and its contents have not been independently verified. It's also not confirmed that it was Tumelo in the video.
According to Sowetan Live, President Ramaphosa, through his spokesperson Khusela Diko, said Tumelo is a "grown man" who should answer for his own actions.

Diko was quoted as saying:
The president, however, finds such behaviour extremely unfortunate and distasteful and not in keeping with the values he espouses or the manner in which he would expect anyone to conduct themselves.
Social media has been abuzz with comments about the video. Some questioned why there seemingly isn't much outrage. See some reactions below.
