DURBAN - Duduzane Zuma who is the son of former President Jacob Zuma is making political strides in his bid to run the African National Congress in the future.
Duduzane was elected as the ANC chairperson and Ward 11 in Newlands, Durban on Thursday, 16 December. The voting took place at the Newlands East community hall during the ANC branch's biennial general meeting.
ANC eThekwini branch spokesperson, Ntando Khuzwayo says Duduzane played a major role in getting people to attend the meeting and even went as far as fetching people from their homes, according to The Witness.
Khuzwayo says the Newlands hall has sentimental value to Duduzane because he was elected chairperson and also got married there a few years prior.

“Not another Zuma”: Saffas react to Poll on whether Duduzane would make a good SA president
Briefly News previously reported that many South Africans see Duduzane Zuma as eye candy and to others, he is suited to be the next president of South Africa. Despite all the challenges facing his dad, the son of Jacob Zuma seems to have it all going for him.
According to some peeps, the young Msholozi would make a good president but he is carrying the 'wrong' surname. That is according to a regular social media user, @LeleMbinda.
Duduzane may be one of the good looking men in Mzansi and having the privilege of growing in a controversial family might dent his chances, but some people are adamant that he has what it takes and he must push for being a statesman.
