Who Are DuduZile Zuma’s Siblings?

Duduzile Zuma, the daughter of Jacob Zuma, has four siblings and eighteen half-siblings. A common bloodline links her and her siblings as they share the same father but different mothers. 

Dudu, as she is fondly called, gets along well with her siblings. Even though some of Duduzile’s siblings are not as widely known or in the spotlight all the time as she and her twin brother are, they nevertheless contributed to the development of Duduzile into the accomplished person she is today.

Duduzile Zuma Has Four Full Siblings and Eighteen Half Siblings

Duduzile and all her siblings share a father who has never stopped showing them love and affection. She and her father are pretty close, and they have been photographed together several times. She is also one of her staunchest defenders who constantly stands by him in good times and bad.

It is particularly impressive how well-adjusted Dudu is to her siblings, especially the older ones. Her younger half-siblings are, however, little mentioned in the media.

Most, if not all, of her half-siblings are being raised by their respective mothers with the help of the former South African president.
