Duduzane Zuma: RET faction backs former president's son as leader
Earlier, Briefly News reported that the faction within the ANC that supports radical economic transformation (RET) is backing former president Jacob Zuma's son, Dudzane Zuma.
They want him to lead the eThekwini region and are supporting his bid to become a candidate for the chair of the region.
The RET faction believes that Duduzane's chances of leading the region have been improved after he was successfully elected as chair of the Durban ANC branch.

“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.
