Duduzane Zuma posts bizarre warning: ‘Many will suffer’

Andile Sicetsha - 30.06.2021

Duduzane Zuma warned that ‘many will suffer’ after the ConCourt banished his father to jail for 15 months.

Duduzane Zuma is no stranger to controversy and on Tuesday, after his father was convicted for being in contempt of court, he fired off a few warning shots about events to come in the next few days.

Duduzane Zuma warns of a ‘political war’

The former president’s son took to social media to make a number of bizarre statements after the Constitutional Court sent a stern message about the rule of law in banishing Zuma to 15 months behind bars for his continued defiance of a court order.

In a series of tweets, Duduzane interpreted Justice Sisi Khampepe’s ruling as “a war declaration.”

“A path has been chosen. Many will suffer,” he tweeted.

What this all means, of course, is left to speculation, at this point. The ANC also chirped in on the judgment, stating that it will study the ruling during this weekend’s national executive meeting, “reflect on the implications and consequences of the judgment.”

“We affirm our commitment to upholding the rule of law and fulfilling the aspirations of our constitutional democracy,” the party wrote.

Social media reacts to ‘who killed Chris Hani?’ tweet

Duduzane’s Twitter tirade didn’t end with his disgruntlement with the apex court’s decision. The Gupta-linked son of the former president sent social media into a frenzy when, in the midst of his bizarre tweets, he posed a question that’s haunted South Africa’s political realm for decades:

Soon after this tweet surfaced on Twitter, a wave of furore was felt. Was Duduzane linking Zuma’s arrest to the mysterious murder of Hani?

it’s documented in history that in April 1993, Hani, General-Secretary of the South African Communist Party (SACP), was assassinated by anti-communist extremist Janusz Waluś outside of his home in Dawn Park, Gauteng. Waluś and his accomplice Clive Derby-Lewis were sentenced to death, but this was later commuted to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

However, those who have followed Duduzane’s eerie tweets believe there is more to it than meets the eye and somehow, the unanswered questions about Hani’s murder have been tied to Zuma’s arrest.

Will Jacob Zuma address the nation soon?

With all of this uncertainty around Zuma’s ruling, the former president has appeared as jubilant as ever, in pictures posted by his daughter Dudu Zuma-Sibandla.

In a number of statements corroborated by the Jacob Zuma Foundation, Dudu hinted that Zuma was in high spirits and happily serve his term at a prison in Nkandla.

The Zuma faction also indicated that, while confirmation has yet to be made, “it cannot be ruled out that [former] president Zuma may soon address the nation.”

The political world waits with baited breath to see what Zuma’s next chess move will be.
