Questions raised after Duduzane Zuma pledge to help financially excluded students
Johannesburg - Former president Jacob Zuma’s son, Duduzane Zuma, has pledged to help financially excluded students and it has left tweeps divided.
In a video shared to the students at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Zuma pledged an undisclosed amount for students who were financially excluded after receiving letters asking for financial assistance.
He also urged student to students not to resort to damaging property in their protest action.
“To my good brothers at UKZN, let’s stop burning our buildings. We’re smarter than that. I understand your frustrations, I understand your anger. Let’s channel our frustrations, let’s hone in on our anger and let’s make a difference. We will sit down, I will come to you and we will do what needs to be done,” said Zuma.
However, not everyone is happy about his aid as some tweeps were questioning the source of his funds.

I admire his confidence
Last month Duduzane Zuma trended for handing out ANC t-shirts. This month he's trending for making student donations & encouraging videos.— Sharné Zoë (@Zoe_SZi) February 24, 2020
Meanwhile Andile Ramaphosa is being scrutinised for payments from Bosasa.
Did I mention Duduzane looked like genetic royalty in that video?
