Polygamy has been part of African tradition for so long. Even with the coming in of western civilisation, a lot of men still practise polygamy as it is still part of their culture. One such man is former President Jacob Zuma.

Jacob Zuma is one of those men with six marriages. In 2018 he was involved with one of the Real Housewives of Durban cast member Nonkanyiso Conco.

Their relationship can be tracked back to 2013, despite having been married six times, Jacob Zuma still wanted to add more women in his life.

During their more than 5 year relationship, despite their age difference, LaConco got pregnant for Jacob Zuma and gave birth to one of his younger sons.


Their child is currently 3 years old as he was born on the 12th of April 2018. After keeping their relationship a secret for 5 years it made headlines and brought a lot of attention to LaConco.

She was bashed as some said she went into the relationship for money. Jacob Zuma paid lobola for LaConco after getting her pregnant.

Their relationship is rumoured to have ended in 2020 and LaConco left their house in Zimbali Hilltop and went back to her mother’s house.
