BBC journo who interviewed Duduzane Zuma says apple doesn't fall far from tree

BBC Correspondent Milton Nkosi shared his experience of grilling Duduzane Zuma in an exclusive interview with the TV network.

President Jacob Zuma's son told the BBC that he is likable and his relationship with the Guptas has nothing to do with who his father is.

According to Nkosi, Duduzane came across as deceptively kind and humble.

He's very polite. There's no sense of the arrogance that you would associate with the newspapers.

Milton Nkosi, BBC Correspondent

I thought I'd find a bloated, egocentric individual. To be honest, I found the opposite.
