Early Life

Minah Shongwe gave birth to Edward Zuma, the son of ex-president Jacob Zuma.

Jacob Zuma's mother was not his husband. Edward Zuma has kept his early life and where he lived hidden from the public eye.

He went to the elite University of Zululand to study law.

His academic studies became well-known online after he was detained for allegedly rapping a student at Zululand University, where he was studying Law.

As a result, the putative victim consented to be reimbursed and dropped the complaint.


According to his LinkedIn page, Edward Zuma is the business development director at Isthebe Group of Companies. He was also the director of manufacturing for Amalgamated Tobacco.

Despite his successful job and financial success, Edward still owes a multi-million dollar loan and has to cope with illegal smokes.

He was a vocal opponent of ex-president Jacob Zuma being sentenced to prison. He pledged that no matter what it took, he would defend his father. He is a part-time activist who works tirelessly to defend the rights of persons who have had their rights abused by politicians.

Edward Zuma published a controversial open letter to Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan in 2018, in which he referred to him as a greedy leader. He accused South African officials of corruption and personal enrichment through the use of state resources.

As a result, there are developments that are detrimental to the progress and pleasure of citizens. Edward Zuma's statement sparked outrage, and it was labeled as hate speech.

The Human Rights Commission recommended that he apologize to Finance Minister "Derek Hanekom" and the ruling party, as well as pay an R60,000 fine to support two underfunded schools in the Durban area.

It was his punishment for allegedly attempting to incite people to revolt against the government.

Personal Life

Edward Zuma married Phumelele Shange in a lavish multi-million dollar ceremony.

Their wedding took place at the beautiful Tala Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal. Their marriage is kept off social media, so no information about whether or not they have children is available.

However, Edward Zuma's support for his father "Jacob Zuma" drew widespread attention online.
