The scandal of the seventh wife of Jacob Zuma

News of former President, Jacob Zuma, fathering a child with a 24-year-old woman from Ballito in KZN made headline news this week. 

Nonkanyiso Conco

Nonkanyiso Conco, who is set to be the seventh wife of Zuma, has confirmed that she is engaged to marry South Africa's third president. 

Nonkayiso confirmed the news of her upcoming marriage to Times Live

So who is the blushing bride to be and new mommy? 

Conco is a Director of Nomkhubulwane Culture and Youth Development Organisation‚ aimed at protecting the cultural practices of young Zulu women. She is also involved in a national campaign by government that helps young women avoid unwanted pregnancies and HIV infections. 

According to Times Live, the campaign’s national committee chairperson Lerato Morulane, as well as the board, are concerned about Nonkanyiso's affiliation with Jacob Zuma. 

Reports say that Nonkanyiso gave birth to a son on Zuma’s 76th birthday on April 12. Zuma is 52 years her senior. 

Do you think Nonkanyiso should have notified her employers, who seemingly suggest that the 24-year-old should have disclosed whom she was getting married to?
