Duduzane Zuma showed his support for his father on Sunday when he made an appearance outside Nkandla without a mask. Amid the rising COVID-19 cases in the country, Jacob Zuma’s supporters showed up in their numbers disregarding the lockdown regulations for gatherings.
There are calls for President Ramaphosa to take action against Zuma and his supporters and enforce the country’s Alert Level 4 regulations. The President has remained mum on the situation, and has not acted on the EFF protests that took place on 25 June.
Zuma’s supporters lost control when his son Duduzane Zuma made an appearance and joined the crowd of supporters marching and singing struggle songs.

Duduzane made his ambitions for a political career clear at an ANC event recently and the support he received outside Nkandla on Sunday was evident.
Duduzane granted the media an interview and spent time interacting with the large crowd of his father’s supporters. Many feel the fight for the next President of South Africa will be between Duduzane Zuma and EFF leader Julius Malema.
