JOHANNESBURG - Duduzane Zuma, a businessman and the son of former president Jacob Zuma, has said that he dreams of becoming president after the 2024 general election, despite not having any previous political experience.
Zuma said that he has observed politics all his life, due to his family's involvement in South Africa's political landscape, but that business is his area of expertise.
Zuma's path to achieving his political aspirations
Political analysts have expressed that they do not believe that the ANC will allow Zuma to be their presidential candidate in the 2024 election. The analysts said that the party tends to favour candidates with a long history of involvement in party activities, such as the ANC Youth League.

According to The Citizen, Zuma not only wants to bring necessary changes to South Africa, but he also wants to revitalise the ANC as he feels that the current leadership is not in tune with younger people's needs and global trends.
“If people have this faith in me, then its a journey I’m willing to walk,” Zuma said.

"What kind of advice made Duduzane think he could run for president?"
Duduzane Zuma wasted time with Guptas instead he could have serving ANC at a certain branch in KZN. If really had genuine presidential ambitions he could have done that."
"Certainly not Duduzane. He is worse than his father we as a country need to start having very high standards."
Duduzane Zuma's swag oozes through the screen in new video
Previously Briefly News reported that dressed from head to toe in black, the son of former president Jacob Zuma, Duduzane Zuma, really knows how to make an entrance. Confidence and power flowed as Duduzane walked through Durban's Suncoast Casino's entertainment area with his bodyguards trailing closely by.
Shared by @kulanicool, a video showing Duduzane walking that walk has made its way to Twitter. 50 000 views later and South Africans are taken down memory lane where they were reminded of the popular ‘#DuduzaneChallenge’ that arose from a similar clip.
The video, that already emitted swag, was made even cooler with the addition of Lady Du's uZuma Yi Star.
