- Jacob Zuma fathered his 22 children with at least 11 women and he is reported to be planning a marriage with another woman
Jacob Zuma, the former president of South Africa has welcomed a baby with a 24-year-old lady. The former president reportedly became a father again after the lady delivered at an hospital in Durban, South Africa, last week.
According to News24, Zuma who already fathered 22 children with at least 11 women became a father again at age 76. It was gathered that the former president had gone to the hospital on Thursday, April 12, to visit the mother and child.
News24 reported that the maternity ward of the hospital had been cleared off during Zuma's visit. An employee at the hospital said: "Yes he was here last week. I saw him with his security. I do not know why he came through."
It was also reported that a relative of the ex-president had disclosed that Zuma was planning a wedding with a lady identified as NonKanyiso Chonco.
The relative identified as Ray Zuma had, however, refused to reveal if Chonco was the same woman who delivered ex-president Zuma's newborn baby.
He said: "I can't see why you are interested. When he was still the president, you [the media] were terrorising him, and now you are all of a sudden interested in him."
Ray Zuma also stated that the wedding date has not been set. He said: "No date has been set yet. Both families must come together to decide on the date. We are still in the pre-nuptial phases of the process."
