David Mabuza Biography

David Dabede Mabuza is a South African politician and the current deputy president serving under president Cyril Ramaphosa. He is a trained teacher but didn’t get to spend most of his time teaching. His calling was politics.

His political career started back when he was a student and secretary of the Azania Students Organization (AZASO). He joined the United Democratic Front soon after.

He counted Matthews Phosa as a mentor, and the older man was instrumental to his rise, including getting some key positions. For instance, Phosa was instrumental in getting him a MEC position in 1994. In the intervening years, he backed Zuma in his presidential bid. It turned out to be a critical move that paid off much later.

He initially opposed Ramaphosa becoming Zuma’s successor but backed him at the last minute. Today he’s the deputy president of the Rainbow Nation.

David Mabuza hasn’t been without controversies, though. He had been accused of corruption multiple times in the past but has never been convicted.


David Mabuza turned 62 in 2022. That means he popped into the material plane in 1960


It’s unclear who David Mabuza’s daughter is – that is if he has any children at all. The deputy president has been a subject of constant speculation as to whether he has children or not, especially as he’s never been found with one.

The prevailing opinion, however, is that he has no children. We have not been able to verify this independently.


As the vice president of South Africa, David Mabuza has his official residence, which also is, understandably, one of the most secure places in South Africa. But, given his status, he is expected to have a personal house.

Details about that are, of course, shrouded, given how important he is in society.


He might not be the most educated out there, but David Mabuza surely knows the value of education. He attended Khumbula High School, the Mgwenya College of Education, where he earned a certificate in education, and then the University of South Africa, where he earned a bachelor’s degree.


So far, what is known to the public is that David Mabuza, who’s fondly called DD Mabuza, is married and that his family comprises him and his wife. If he has kids, he’s done an excellent job of hiding them from the public. And if he doesn’t, maybe that’s cool with him as well.


For David Mabuza, tribe doesn’t matter as much as getting the job done as the deputy president of South Africa under president Cyril Ramaphosa. He’s black; his exact tribe unknown.

There is no phone number and no residential address.

However, the deputy president is active on social media, especially on Twitter, where he goes by the handle @DDMabuza. The account is verified.
