Nonkanyiso ‘LaConco’ Conco took to social media on 12 April to wish the father of her child, former president Jacob Zuma, a happy birthday. Although the pair have allegedly split up, it seems that they’re still cordial with one another as she posted a sweet birthday message for the ex-president.
She shared a picture of an exquisite cake she presented to him at last year’s birthday celebrations along with a kind message about how great he is.
There was, unfortunately, no cake this year, possibly since the couple have gone their separate ways.
The official Jacob Zuma Twitter account had not acknowledged the message by the time the article has gone to print.
Engathi inkosi ingakupha izintsuku eziningi, ubukhosi bakho bubenothando nenjabulo. Engathi ungaphiwa amandla okukhulisa isizwe sakho ngokufisa kwakho. Usuku oluhle wele lengane yami.

It seems LaConco’s son, whom she shares with the former president, was born on the same day. The reality TV Star shared that her precious bundle was turning three years old.
She said: “Exactly this day three years ago I met my heart in a human form. Khula ke sosha lami. (Grow my soldier), Mamo ngiyabonga ngokungiseka ngikhulisa indoda a yami. (Mum, thank you for helping me raise my young man.)”
Briefly reported that LaConco is one of the housewives on the hugely popular The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) TV show.
Many were excited that the woman would spill some tea on the Nkandla household and perhaps a little inside knowledge about her baby daddy Jacob Zuma.
Disappointingly, LaConco has remained mum. When she was asked about it by the other housewives, the feisty woman advised them to google her.
A google search, however, reveals that the couple have split with complaints from LaConco that Zuma is an absent father. In addition, Briefly News exclusively reported that the Zuma family warned her to keep her mouth shut about them on the reality TV show.
Celebgossip.co.za reported that Zuma's 7th wife, Nonkanyiso Conco, grabbed headlines in 2018after reportedly being forced to resign from a women's empowerment organisation as punishment for being the 15th woman to have unprotected sex with Zuma, who was South Africa's president at the time, resulting in her falling pregnant and subsequently giving birth to Zuma's 23rd child.
Conco gave birth to a child fathered by Zuma on 12 April 2018. This becomes Jacob Zuma's 23rd official child and 15th official woman to be impregnated by Zuma.
The Sowetan reported that Conco was a journalism intern at Isolezwe ngoMgqibelo between 2012 and 2013. A journalist who spoke to The Sowetan on condition of anonymity said Conco was an advocate of virginity testing and boasted that she had attended the Reed Dance events since she was a toddler.
Journalists were reportedly shocked when she was seen sitting close to the Zuma family while covering an event in Greytown in 2016.
"I knew there and then that there was something going on. You don't just sit there as an ordinary citizen. And because I had not seen her nor spoken to her in two years, I kept my distance because I was intimidated by her VIP status. But she later walked to me and greeted me warmly. She still remembered me from the newsroom," a journalist reportedly said.
