A 24-year-old woman is set to become former president Jacob Zuma’s seventh wife. The lady who goes by the name Nonkanyiso Conco would be Zuma’s youngest bride‚ at 52 years his junior.
Nonkanyiso Conco confirmed to the Times Live that she and Jacob Zuma are getting married.
“Yes‚ we are getting married‚ but that is all I can say. I need to consult before I give any interviews‚” she said.
News24 reports that the woman gave birth to a baby last week at the Busamed Hillcrest Private Hospital last Thursday – Zuma’s birthday.
Conco is a director of the Pietermaritzburg-based Nomkhubulwane Culture and Youth Development Organisation‚ aimed at protecting the cultural practices of Zulu maidens.
Conco reportedly resides in the plush Ballito Estate Hilltop‚ home to some of the city’s most well-heeled residents.
Jacob Zuma‚ who has always been a proponent of polygamy‚ is currently married to Gertrude Sizakele Khumalo‚ Thobeka Madiba-Zuma and Bongi Ngema-Zuma. He is divorced from Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and separated from Nompumelelo MaNtuli Zuma.
In total, Zuma has fathered 22 known children from at least 11 women.
Three independent sources confirmed to News24 that Zuma came to visit his baby under strict security on Thursday night.
“They had to clear the maternity ward for other patients. Hospital staff made it clear that this was strictly confidential,” a source with direct knowledge of the birth told News24.
Ray Zuma, who is related to the former president, confirmed to News24 that Zuma was going to wed a woman named Nonkanyiso Chonco.
When asked if Chonco was the same woman who had given birth to a baby earlier this month, Ray Zuma responded by saying: “So?”
“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.”
When asked about the details of the wedding, he said he was not privy to the details.
“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.”
When News24 visited the hospital earlier in the week, an employee confirmed that Zuma had visited the facility.
“Yes he was here last week. I saw him with his security. I do not know why he came through.”
But other sources confirmed the baby was Zuma’s. Hospital staff were briefed to keep it a closely guarded secret and only told “this is JZ’s child” and a “VIP delivery”.
Hillcrest Private Hospital management declined to comment saying they would not divulge details of any patient.

A bank has erroneously transferred $34 billion to a customer in a routine operation, more than the entire bank is worth.
The Deutsche Bank in Germany which is considered to be the biggest bank in Germany on Friday admitted the error.
The unprecedented mistake happened on March 16 when Deutsche Bank carried out a transfer to an account at Deutsche Boerse’s Eurex clearing house, a spokesman told AFP.
The operation was meant to involve a far smaller sum, which the bank has not revealed, and highlights IT and control issues at the banking giant.
Accounting errors happen most days, but the sum involved in this case is highly unusual and even exceeds Deutsche’s market capitalisation of 24 billion euros.
The incident, which came shortly before John Cryan was ousted as chief executive, was quickly fixed and no harm was done, the institution said.
But it raises questions about the risk management and...
