At the beginning of the 2014/15 season, Zuma joined South African Premier Division side Bloemfontein Celtic from Kings United.

In July 2017, Zuma signed for fellow South African Premier Division side Kaizer Chiefs on a three-year contract. His first goal for the club came on his 11th appearance on 16 December 2017 in a 1–0 victory over Ajax Cape Town. In total, he scored three goals across 17 league appearances during the 2017/18 season. The 2018/19 season saw him score twice in 18 league appearances for Chiefs.

In September 2019, Zuma signed a new contract with Chiefs, lasting until July 2023. Zuma made his first start of the 2019/20 season on 6 November 2019, scoring a brace in a 2–0 victory against Chippa United with the first of his goals winning him the South African Premier Division Goal of the Month award for November 2019.

In the 2022/23 season he signed with Usuthu where he played 23 matches, scoring just once

Zuma has represented South Africa internationally at under-20 and under-23 levels. In July 2017, he earned his first senior cap for South Africa in a 1–0 African Nations Championship qualification victory over Botswana, before making a further two appearances for South Africa in August 2017.
