Former president Jacob Zuma’s partner has taken to social media to share the harsh realities of being in a polygamous marriage. She opened up about the pain of having to raise her young child alone. She received overwhelming support from her social media followers.
Nonkanyiso Conco came into the spotlight two years ago when the world learnt that the then 24-year-old was carrying Zuma’s child. Her son, Sakh’muzi, is almost two years old now.
The new mom recently shared her feelings in an Instagram post. She thanked her son for being the reason that she works harder. She went on to share emotional experiences that she had to go through alone, like his first birthday.
She explained that some situations needed the presence of a father. Conco also shared that she was anxious about the questions her son would ask her one day.
Some of her followers misinterpreted the post and thought she was taking a jab at the former president. Conco was quick to correct them, explaining that she understood that men in polygamous relationships had different households to attend to.
Twenty three kids (and still counting), six weddings (the seventh one is coming anytime from now) and a whole lot of polygamous loving going on, marital and extra-marital, that’s extremely sex-starved ex-President Jacob Zuma for you!
Zuma has had unpro_tected sex with several daughters of his close friends, impregnating some in the process. One of them is his baby’s mother, Sonona Khoza, who is the daughter of powerful soccer businessman, Dr Irvin Khoza, the Orlando Pirates chairman, who Zuma is not married to.
Virginity testing lobbyist Nonkanyiso Conco, 26, confirmed to the media in 2018 that she was about to become the next Mrs Zuma, a week after she gave birth to his baby at the Busamed Private Hospital in Hillcrest, KwaZulu-Natal. This is Zuma’s 23rd known child. The two families were believed to be ecstatic and it was reported that Zuma had already paid lobola.
However, it was believed she had a crush on the elder statesman even as a teenager. It could have been the time when they first locked eyes on each other.
On September 3, 2013, she had tweeted a day after the annual reed dance: “Don’t believe this, OMG! Am going back to that Hollywood house to spend the whole weekend this time! #Zuma’s home @ Nkandla! Whoopee, can’t wait.”
At the time Conco was the director of the Nomkhubulwane Culture and Youth Development Organisation in Pietermaritzburg and was a strong advocate for virginity testing and abstinence.
