Duduzane Zuma has encouraged rioters in a video that has been circulated widely on social media to “do so carefully and responsibly”.

In the seven second video clip a calm Zuma with white earphones on advises:

“To the people who are protesting and looting, please do so carefully and please do so responsibly.”

SAPS spokesperson Colonel Brenda Muridili declined to comment on the video when asked whether the police would arrest Zuma for encouraging the looters.

“We don’t comment on individual incidents, we give a national update,” Muridili said.

Duduzane Zuma earlier vowed to fight to get his father, former president Jacob Zuma, out of jail. Zuma is serving a 15 month sentence in Esctourt Prison after he was found guilty of contempt of court in the Constitutional Court for defying an order to appear before the Zondo Commission into State Capture.

The young Zuma also launched a scathing attack, presumably against the government and African National Congress (ANC).

In a video clip originally shared on Instagram,Duduzane bemoans his father’s incarceration and says there’s more happening in the country that his sole arrest will not solve.

“You think you’re locking up an individual that is a being on his own, that’s not the case. You’re locking up someone that carries a light for people, you’re locking up someone that is the embodiment of what coming from nothing and becoming somebody in life is about,” he said.

Jacob Zuma’s attempt to stay the Constitutional Court order for his arrest on the charge of contempt of court failed on Friday 9 July. He had launched the failed application in the Pietetmaritzburg High Court.

“You’ve tried to kill him and you’ve forced him to resign, which he did, he’s minding his own business and you continue hounding him. You’ve charged him but you haven’t followed the due processes as much as you claim that you have when it comes to the judiciary, unfortunately,” he said.
