Happy birthday, Jacob Zuma (75) and Pravin Gordhan (68)!

10 April 2017 6:42 PM

We kid you not; Wednesday (12 April) is the birthday of both Gordhan and Zuma.

President Jacob Zuma and former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan - two of South Africa’s most antagonistic politicians ever – share a birthday.

Zuma was born on 12 April 1942 in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal.

His father was a policeman who died when Zuma was young, and his mother was a domestic worker.

He received no formal schooling.

Gordhan was born on 12 April 1949 in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

He matriculated from Sastri College.

In 1973 he graduated from the University of Durban-Westville with a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree.
