Jacob Zuma to tie the knot again - report

The former president and his family have apparently paid lobola for the woman.

JOHANNESBURG - It’s being reported that former president Jacob Zuma will be getting married yet again.

The Citizen has named his new bride as Nonkanyiso Conco who is in her 20s.

Zuma and his family have apparently already paid lobola for her, and both families are understood to be happy with the union.

The Zuma family is yet to make an official announcement.

At the same time, News24 is reporting that Zuma has become a father again after a woman gave birth to his child in Durban.

At this stage, it’s not yet clear whether Zuma's new fiancé is the mother of the child.

According to a Twitter account allegedly belonging to Conco, which isn't very active, she'd already known and been to Zuma's home as far back as 2013. She would've been 19-years-old at the time.

Gertrude Sizakele Khumalo

Zuma married his first wife, Gertrude Sizakele Khumalo, in the early 1970s before he fled the country to go into exile.

President Jacob Zuma arrives with wife Sizakele Khumalo at the Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, Federal Republic of Ethiopia ahead of the 26th Ordinary Session of the Heads of States and Government of the African Union scheduled to take place from the 30th to the 31 January 2016.

Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma

Zuma married Nkosazana Clarice Dlamini in the early 1970s, shortly after he'd married Khumalo. Both were comrades of the African National Congress (ANC) when they met.

She and Zuma divorced in 1998 and have four children together. The pair seems very cordial with each other, with Zuma even backing Dlamini-Zuma as his preferred candidate to succeed him as president of the ANC in December 2017.

Kate Mantsho

In 1980, Zuma married Kate Mantsho, mother to his controversial son Duduzane Zuma and four other children.

Mantsho committed suicide in 2000 via an overdose of sleeping pills and malaria drugs. It is believed she was depressed because of the strained relationship between herself and Zuma.

Nompumelelo Ntuli

Zuma married Nompumelelo Ntuli in 2008, just before he was elected president of South Africa.

Zuma and Ntuli have three children together. While she isn't officially divorced with Zuma, she is separated from him following allegations that she had an affair with one of her bodyguards and tried to poison Zuma.

Ntuli was subsequently ordered to leave the Nkandla homestead where she had been living.

Thobeka Madiba

Thobeka Madiba is one of Zuma's more prominent wives. She has often been seen by his side at public engagements including meetings with heads of state, previous State of the Nation Addresses and social events.

Zuma married Madiba in 2010 and have two children together.

Madiba landed herself in hot water earlier this year as pressure for Zuma to step down was mounting.

She took to her Instagram account to defend Zuma, saying that things would get "rough" and that he would "finish what he started".

Gloria Bongekile Ngema

Zuma married Gloria Bongekile Ngema in 2012. She and Zuma have one child together.
