Academic Qualifications

He might not be the most educated in South Africa’s political arena, but Zizi Kodwa isn’t doing badly either. The politico holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Cape.

The couple got married in a glamorous wedding in 2011 at the Botanical gardens in Durban. The ceremony was attended by several political heavyweights, including former President Jacob Zuma.


About Zizi Kodwa’s private apartments, not much is known. A simple search about the house he might own throws up results about the luxury apartments he lived in at the state’s expense.

During his appearance at the state capture commission, Zizi had noted that he thought the luxury vacation apartments he lived in belonged to his friend and EOH executive Jehan Mackay.

He was also questioned for taking R1 million in kickback from Jehan Mackay to facilitate EOH obtaining tenders from the government. In his response, though, he noted the dum was more of a loan from a friend at a time of need.

But it appeared that EOH had actually billed the state for his stay.


Zizi Kodwa’s love for the good things of life is well documented. And while he probably owns other cars, one of them has captured the attention of the public the most.

That car is an R890,000 Jeep.

The politician had reportedly bought the car from the R1 million “loan” he got from his friend Jehan Mackay. However, the State capture Commission thinks it was a kickback from a company hankering to get government tender and not a loan.

Kodwa claimed to have gotten the “loan” at a time of serious financial need, and the commissioned wondered why he should spend almost all of it on a vehicle.
