Are Shanice Stork and Duduzane Zuma still married?

Over the years, Duduzane Zuma has managed to keep his private life under wraps, leaving many to guess even about his marriage.

Is Duduzane Zuma still married or not?


The son of former President Jacob Zuma tied the knot in 2015 at a private wedding attended by government officials, close relatives, and friends. Five hundred guests were in attendance.

Duduzane Zuma and Shanice Stork tied the knot at the New Apoplectic Church Durban. However, their marriage has often hogged headlines, leaving many trying to connect the dots if they are still married.

In 2021, rumour mill had it that the two were ready to call it quits. Unconfirmed reports have it that they were considering divorce, and Stork returned to her parent’s home during that time.

Rumour mill has it that their woes came against the backdrop of Duduzane Zuma’s political ambitions. ZiMoja has it that Stork could not battle for her husband’s attention. A close source revealed to the media that Zuma got consumed by his political aspirations and allegedly neglected his wife.

The source said, “There were always comrades in and out of their house; she could no longer take it. Stork could not stand the fact that their home was always full of strangers meeting with Duduzane and discussing politics.”

Against the trends, the two seemingly blueticked the rumours. However, they haven’t openly confirmed their fallout nor addressed several daring rumours that have often thrust them into the top trends.


However, in one of his interviews, Duduzane Zuma opened up about his thoughts on polygamy and mentioned his wife during the conversation. Speaking to Sunday World in 2020, he revealed that he would consider taking on another wife as long as everyone is happy.

“If it should ever happen, I will have that conversation with my wife, in-laws and whoever else. As long as everyone is happy,” said Duduzane Zuma.

Surprisingly, little is known about Shanice Stork. Over the years, she has kept herself away from the media. Rumour mill has it that she was born on 29 March 1993 and enrolled at Hillview Secondary School.

According to reports, she holds a degree from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. She reportedly doubles as Duduzane Zuma’s business partner. They reportedly oversee several business investments, which include:

Westdawn Investments
Gemini Moon Trading 254
Karibu Hospitality
Afripalm Horizons
