Jacob Zuma: Breaks Mugabe's Record, Marries 7th Wife

Johannesburg – Even when his presidency was cut short, former South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma will not cease with his polygamist believes to marry a bride 52 years his junior – breaking Robert Mugabe’s record for a president who married a wife decades younger than himself.

Ousted Mugabe married Grace – 41 years his junior, to become his second wife, after his first wife Sally, who died in 1992 of a kidney alignment.

Whilst working as secretary to the president, Mugabe – Grace became his mistress while she was still married to Stanley Goreraza – and had two children, Bona born in 1988 and named after Mugabe's mother, and Robert Peter, Jr.

After the death of Mugabe's first wife, Sally Hayfron, the couple were married in an extravagant Catholic Mass (Robert Mugabe is a devout Catholic) titled the "Wedding of the Century" by the Zimbabwe press. At the time of their marriage, Grace Marufu was 31 and Robert Mugabe was 72 years old.
Nokanyiso, Zuma's 7th Wife

While his foes were baying for his post, Zuma was actually getting busy with a 24-year-old Ballito woman – Nonkanyiso Conco, who will become his seventh wife, after giving birth to a child.

Conco – a director of the Pietermaritzburg-based Nomkhubulwane Culture and Youth Development Organisation that focuses at protecting the cultural practices of young Zulu women, conducting virginity teats.

“Yes‚ we are getting married‚ but that is all I can say. I need to consult before I give any interviews‚” she said.

Zuma – 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. - Online Sources
