“We are living in the 21st century. We can’t be deploying tactics that were deployed in 1976 or 1994.”
These are the words of businessman Duduzane Zuma, who is adamant about his plans to run for president in 2024.
Speaking on Power 98.7 on Monday, Zuma said his presidential bid was more than a dream, despite having no experience in politics.
The son of former president Jacob Zuma said the switch from businessman to politician lies with “decision-making at the highest levels”.
“It is less of a dream but more of conversations. I think over a period of time we all have these conversations about how we get involved in making a difference.
“I have been a businessman my whole life, an entrepreneur, and politics is very new to me. I’ve followed it, I have understood it and was a part of it,” he said.
Zuma said he has a “game-changing contribution” to offer and wants to bring about a change in the ANC.
“We cannot have the same players on the field trying to make plans for people who think differently in this day and age. All we are saying is, that time is done. We need fresh and younger perspectives,” he said.
Zuma previously told Newsbreak Lotus he was allowed to “dream big” and was putting his name in the hat to run for the ANC presidency in December 2022 and in the national general elections in 2024.
He said his political plan was not to compete with anyone, adding he was walking a different path.
“If you’re saying I’m competing against someone, it means we walk on the same path. I’m walking a completely different path. We’re going to do things differently and there’s no-one in that lane. That’s a lane I’m creating, because I believe that’s the only way we’re going to overturn and overhaul the situation through the ANC,” he said.
Last year Zuma told 702 he believes many South Africans trust him to bring about change and would vote for him, despite his previous business ties with the controversial Gupta family.
He said his interaction with people was what informed his decision to embark on a political career and denied claims his father had a hand in it.
“I didn’t wake up and say, ‘Let me start a political career’. It was because of the people who believe in me and trust me to fight their fight. That’s where I am coming from.
“To say there is a [Zondo] commission going on and I have a negative persona, that goes without saying, but I am here and that’s going to change. There are going to be a lot of interactions. You’ll get to know me and enjoy me.”

Zambian Woman Explains Why She Let Her Brother In Law Impregnate Her – Face of Malawi
A 28 year old woman of Mansa has told the court that she allowed the young brother to her husband to impregnate her twice in 5 years because her husband is not fertile.
Speaking in court last Friday, Felistus Chanda a teacher by profession (though not yet deployed) said since she got married in 2016, her husband Rick Kapambwe 32, failed to make her pregnant forcing his relatives to advise her to sleep with his young brother Rocky Kapambwe 26, to have children on his behalf of which she agreed because her man was crying for children.
This is in a matter in which Felistus a Mansa woman in Luapula sued her hubby a farmer for divorce on grounds that he is demanding for more children when he is infertile.
“I love my husband but the problem is that he is forcing me to have a 3rd child when himself is infertile. He knows this because doctors examined us both in 2018 and he was found infertile and that’s how his close relatives encouraged me to start sleeping with his young brother whom I was keeping and despite being younger than me, he managed to sleep with me 84 times and gave me 2 children in 5 years.
I was recording. But now i don’t want to continue sleeping with his young brother because he takes long to get satisfied such that he takes about 1 hour 10 minutes making love to me and sometimes I faint!”, she complained. “Your honour I feel its unacceptable for someone who is not my husband to sleep with me to an extent of making me faint”.
Felistus said she would rather divorce than continuing sleeping with another man who is not her husband. “Its better i divorce and get married to another man. Abana nkabashila”.

Mozambican Court Jails Poach Gang Leader 30 Years – Face of Malawi
A court in Mozambique has sentenced the leader of a poaching gang to 30 years in prison.
Judges in Maputo Province found Admiro Chauque guilty of illegal possession of weapons, and numerous poaching offences in southern Mozambique, as well as in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
He was arrested trying to poach rhinos in May last year.
There is a strong demand for rhino horn in China and Vietnam.
The court also gave a nine-year sentence to a man who was caught laying traps to catch animals in Maputo National Park.
In recent years the judiciary in Mozambique has imposed heavy penalties on poachers and people transporting the protected animals.
