Is Duduzane Zuma entering the political fray? Here's what some people think

Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni comments on the Duduzane Zuma "siphithiphithi" that he says is brewing - and what it could mean.

Former president Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane Zuma has been attending several African National Congress (ANC) events of late in a move that could be seen as boosting his political profile.

Duduzane Zuma's increased visibility at rallies and other ANC events has sparked online discussions about his possible future in political leadership.

Many have weighed in on the debate.

Political analyst Lukhona Mnguni says Duduzane's alleged links to state capture should disqualify him from leading or representing the ANC.

However, he says the governing party has long been used as a platform for tainted individuals to reinvent themselves.

It's an indictment on the ANC itself that people accused of wrong-doing find refuge in the ANC and use the party as a platform to reinvent themselves.

Lukhona Mnguni, Political Analyst at University of Kwa-Zulu Natal

It's part of what I call, in South Africa, the ability of people to reinvent themselves into new roles.

ANC Nelson Mandela Bay councillor Andile Lungisa says Duduzane should play a role in the ANC Youth League alongside the likes of Fees Must Fall activist Mcebo Dlamini.

He adds that the children of ANC struggle stalwarts must join the ranks of the party and not rely on the legacy of their parents.

They must not rely on the work that was done by their mothers or fathers. They must be able to stand alone. I think this is what comrade Duduzane.
