    Know thy future President (and his wives)

    • Number one
    Sizakele Khumalo - whom he met in 1959. She lives at his rural R1,5-million home at Nkandla in northern KwaZulu- Natal and they have no children.

    • Number two - Ex-wife
    Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma - Foreign Affairs Minister - with whom he had 4 children - Msholozi, 24, Gugu, 22, Thuli, 21 and Thuthi, 19. They divorced in June 1998 due to "irreconcilable differences."

    • Number three - Late wife
    Kate Zuma - with whom he had 5 children - Saady, 29, twins Duduzile and Duduzane both 25, Phumzile, 20 and Vusi. She committed suicide on December 8, 2000 after apparent strained relations with Zuma.

    • Number four - Still on honeymoon
    Nompumelelo Mantuli Zuma - whom he married in January. She has 2 children Thandiswe, 7 and 8 month old Sinquobile.

    • Number five - Waiting in the wings
    Thobeka Stacey Mabhija - with whom he has two children, including a 5 month old baby

    • Mrs Jacob Zuma number six?
    Bongi Ngema - from Umlazi, has a 7 month old son

    "THE OTHERS"

    • Old flame
    Minah Shongwe - who is Zuma's old flame. Shongwe, the sister of Judge Jeremiah Shongwe has a 30 year old son, Edward with Zuma.

    • Left at the altar
    Zuma also paid half lobolo for Swazi Princess Sebentile Dlamini, 38, the granddaughter of King Sobhuza III, in 2002 but nothing has come out of it.

    4 Marriages, 1 ½ Lobola, 3 partners and 15 Children...?????

    Check the age differences between the children from different mothers – an 8 month old baby, a 7month old baby and a 5 month old baby – very busy 2007!


    And then we worry about Steve Hofmeyer??????????

    Clearly I'm doing something wrong!

    African mentality in question:" He has many wives, He must love women!"

    Didn't he also gain support of the African Woman's league?

    Look at Scandinavian countries where women enjoy real rights: negative population growth, well developed, little social problems. (high male suicide rate because men are "not a necessity")

    African countries: No woman's rights, overpopulation, std's, conflict, poverty.

    When we actually start to enforce our lavender laws our countries woes might disappear.

    Well, our current President is growing on me.

    At least he is considering the Bills put before him before he signs them
    President Kgalema Motlanthe is expected this week to meet his legal advisers to decide whether to send the Broadcasting Amendment Bill back to Parliament for reconsideration, or sign it into law.
    from IOL here
    and even sends them back sometimes
    President Kgalema Motlanthe has declined to enact two bills, including the controversial Films and Publications Amendment Bill, and returned them unsigned to Parliament.

    Motlanthe has referred the Films and Publications Amendment Bill and the Competition Amendment Bill back to the National Assembly for reconsideration in terms of Section 79(1) of the Constitution, the presidency said on Thursday.
    from IOL here
    Can we expect the same careful attention and analysis from JZ?
