Duduzane was born on the 20th of May, 1984, and he is the twin brother of Dududzile Zuma. He studied in Pretoria Boys High School. Duduzane has been at the centre of controversy for a while now. In 2014, he hit a taxi while driving leading to the death of two women. The charges were re-instated and the case re-opened after he came back to South Africa in July 2018 for the funeral of his brother. Also, in 2009, after his father assumed presidency of South Africa, he was mysteriously named the director of over 10 different companies. The scandals associated with him have brought him under the watchful eye of the press and the public alike.
Dududzane flaunts his money and lives a very lavish lifestyle. He married Shanice Stork in 2017. He can be considered a philanthropist, and this is because he pledged to donate his shares in the Oakbay Companies to the South African Youth Development programme.
He is the oldest of Kate’s five children. Mxolisi was born in 1980 in Mozambique where the family was exiled during the time of the apartheid government in South Africa. He is therefore able to speak Portugese, the national language of Mozambique. After ten years, they then moved to Zimbabwe and finally relocated to South Africa in 1993. When his mother died, Mxolisi was just 20 years old. Now he is a very successful businessperson. Mxolisi keeps his life very private and prefers to avoid being in the public eye.
She was born in 1984 as Duduzane’s twin. She is currently 34 years old. She got married in 2011 to Lonwabo Sambudha in a ceremony that was Parisian themed. She is on the boards of several investment companies. After Duduzane Zuma mother passed away, she was heavily inspired.
