Ramaphosa's son takes a swipe at Duduzane Zuma
President Cyril Ramaphosa’s son Tumelo has caused a social media flurry by calling former president Jacob Zuma’s son Duduzane a “fool” in a bragging post on Instagram.
On Wednesday‚ Ramaphosa’s spokeswoman Khusela Diko said Tumelo was a “grown man” who had to answer for himself for his actions.
“The president‚ however‚ finds such behaviour extremely unfortunate and distasteful and not in keeping with the values he espouses or the manner in which he would expect anyone to conduct themselves.”
Tumelo‚ in a brief video posted on his account this week‚ which was later deleted‚ took a dig at the son of his father’s predecessor after arriving at a Dubai hotel.
The video‚ which had already been saved and was reposted and retweeted several times by some Instagram and Twitter users‚ sparked debate.
South African media has aggressivley character assasinated Robert & Chatunga - Mugabe's sons but I doubt they were brazen, condescending & black-hating snobs as Tumelo - Cyril Ramaphosa's son! How do u call Black ppl fools & monkeys? @TrevorNcube @ProfJNMoyo @CynicHarare @bayhaus pic.twitter.com/BGbW5irupv— Outkast (@Outkassst) April 18, 2018
