JACOB Zumaâ€™s daughter, Gugulethu is to make her debut on one of South Africaâ€™s most popular soap operas, Isidingo.
South Africaâ€™s first daughter plays the part of a young woman who returns to her humble beginnings after studying abroad for five years.
This will be her second appearance on the small screen. Her first TV role was as a police officer in a local police drama last year.
She has denied suggestions that she got the role because of her father.
The character she plays grew up on a farm where her father worked as a stableman.
Isidingo, broadcast on the state-run SABC, is set in a small mining town and follows the lives of its residents, black and white, rich and poor.
Gugulethu (24) has a BA degree in Live Performance from the AFDA film school, one of South Africaâ€™s most reputable performance arts schools.
She is married to Bongani Ncube, the son of Zimbabwean minister Welshman Ncube, a senior member of one faction of the former opposition Movement for Democratic Change. â€” BBCOnline.
