The 37-year-old son of former president Jacob Zuma hopped onto Instagram to voice his concerns regarding his father’s imprisonment at the Estcourt Correctional Centre. In the five minute long video, Duduzane Zuma ensures that “we’re [going to] fight to get [Zuma] out, no doubt.”
According to IOL, the video was shared by Duduzane’s close associate, Winston Innes. Here are some of the issues addressed by Duduzane that’s found in the footage. He says:
“You think you’re locking up an individual that is a being on his own, that’s not the case. You’re locking up someone that carries a light for people, you’re locking up someone that is the embodiment of what coming from nothing and becoming somebody in life is about.
“You’re locking up someone that’s contributed to the best of his abilities to get things to where they are in this country, him and there’s a whole host of other people that have done so before. He’s 79 year-old, he’s going nowhere, he’s an old man,” Duduzane said.
He added that his father has been targeted throughout his political career.
“You’ve tried to kill him and you’ve forced him to resign, which he did, he’s minding his own business and you continue hounding him. You’ve charged him but you haven’t followed the due processes as much as you claim that you have when it comes to the judiciary, unfortunately.
“He’s 79 years old guys, stop playing games. There’s more happening in this country than locking up one man that you believe is the root cause of all these issues, that’s not the case, stop lying to people and focus on the real issues,” he maintained.
