In a video that went viral, which is said to have initially been sent to UKZN students, Duduzane can be seen pleading with students to stop burning buildings and has even promised to “come” to them and do what needs to be done to help sort out their grievances.

“To my good brothers at UKZN, let’s stop burning our buildings. We’re smarter than that. I understand your frustrations, I understand your anger. Let’s channel our frustrations, let’s hone in on our anger and let’s make a difference. We will sit down, I will come to you and we will do what needs to be done [sic],” he says in the video.

However, not everyone is happy with Zuma coming to the rescue. As this has left tweeps divided over his involvement.

But it seems Duduzane is unfazed by the debate surrounding his involvement and has taken to Twitter to express how eager he is to lend a helping hand.

“To whom much is given, much is expected. I’m grateful to be able to lend a helping hand,” he tweeted.
