Former President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane, is making his intentions clear about his ambitions of becoming the next leader of the African National Congress and eventually the president of South Africa in 2024.

Speaking to Kaya959, the former president's son explained that he is making his rounds to media outlets to let his intentions known about his journey to the presidency. He wants his intentions to be clear and emphasised that he is not running against any candidate.
The 37-year-old is aware that he is entering the political space late in life, however, he said he should be granted the opportunity to dream big. While some people believe that he might be able to pull in young people, others have had their doubts about him, especially considering his involvement with the Gupta family. To that, Duduzane says no formal charges have ever been laid against him and it's just speculation.

According to The Citizen, Duduzane plans to make his first leadership debut at the ANC National Conference set to happen in December 2022. Should he be elected as the next president of the ANC, Dudzane will be able to run as a presidential candidate in the 2024 general elections.

He stated that he has already begun to garner support from his home province, KwaZulu-Natal.

Zuma links the motivation for his new venture to his interaction with individuals who led him to embrace a political journey.
