Duduzane Zuma Biography

Duduzane Zuma is among the many children of former South African president Jacob Zuma. He is also the most visible.

Born in 1984, the songster lost his mother in 2000 when he was still a kid. In the intervening years, he had worked his way into the consciousness of many in South Africa.

However, he only gained serious public attention when his father became president. He has remained in the spotlight since.


Duduzane Zuma married Shanice Stork in 2015 in a colorful ceremony. He was 31 at the time. While Duduzane appears to revel in public attention and controversies and appears to court them avidly, Shanice is publicity shy and stays away from the news.

She was said to have gotten pregnant in 2007 and had to cut short her Dubai trip. While Dudu is married to Shanice at the moment, he had made it clear in an interview that he is an Africanist at heart and, therefore open to polygamy.

In the interim, though, she appears to be focused on the wife of his youth. Would he eventually follow his father on the path of polygamy? Time will tell

His infatuation with polygamy notwithstanding, Duduzan Zuma has denied any romantic involvement with Thuli Phongolo, who in turn denied ever knowing him

Net Worth

Duduzane Zuma has an interest in several companies in South Africa. Among the companies he has been linked with are Gemini Moon 254, Westdawn Investments, and Shiva Uranium.

The accurate sum of his net worth isn’t out there, so peeps speculate at best. That notwithstanding, he’s an admired millionaire in South Africa’s business and political circles.


Born in 1984, Duduzane Zuma is currently 37 years. Thanks to his father’s position in the country, he had opportunities many could only dream of and has accomplished much as a millennial.


Duduzane Zuma’s mother is the late Kate Zuma (nee Mantsho). Unfortunately, she died back in 2000, reportedly by drug overdose.

She was believed to suffer from depression because of her strained relationship with Jacob Zuma.

She was 44 at the time when Jacob Zuma was the vice president of the Rainbow Nation. Frank Chikane, a director general in the presidency, had stated that Kate had called him to let him know what she did.

She died while being rushed to a hospital in Pretoria. She had five kids for Zuma.


Duduzane Zuma is one of the car-loving Mzansi celebs out there. Among others, he owns a Porsche 911 Turbo. Unfortunately, in 2014, the car was involved in an accident in which one person died.

Zuma had rammed his whip into another vehicle, killing a passenger and injuring three others. At the time of the crash, the police had been severely criticized for not following the appropriate procedure, like a breath analyzer test on Duduzane, to determine what happened.

By the way, he is said to have gotten his Porsche thanks to his association with the Guptas, a family that’s currently under investigation for corruption and state capture.


Duduzane Zuma is said to own a luxury home in South Africa and another in Dubai. His Dubai apartment is in the swanky Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the United Arab Emirates and the world.

He’s said to have financed the R18 million property via one of the companies he owns with the Gupta brothers. He had paid an initial deposit of R1778916 in 2015 before completing it later that year.

A minor controversy erupted when the house was acquired, with some claiming that then-President Jacob Zuma was the house’s owner. But a presidential spokesman had denied it, claiming the president has no house in South Africa and does not plan to acquire one.


Duduzane Zuma is said to her a child with Shanice Stork, whom he married in 2015. However, Shanice Stork has been entirely secretive about the child’s birth, reportedly deleting images she had posted of him.


The ANC (African National Congress) is the leading party in South Africa and one to which Duduzane Zuma belongs – like his father, the former president of South Africa.

Last year, the younger Zuma indicated he would be challenging the current president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, at the polls in 2024. According to him, the reason for wanting to lead the Rainbow Nation is that the country currently lacks a sense of direction.
