SA gets a fourth first lady
Johannesburg - South Africa now has four first ladies with President Jacob Zuma's marriage to Bongi Ngema in a traditional ceremony at his home in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal on Friday, the presidency said.
"A wedding reception will be held this evening, and tomorrow [Saturday] there will be the 'umabo', where the bride showers the groom's family with gifts," spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement.
The couple, who have a seven-year-old son named Sinqumo, participated in the traditional ukugqumushela dance of celebration.
"The new Mrs Zuma had already been part of the spousal office machinery in terms of administrative support, so there will be no changes due to the wedding," Maharaj said.
This is Zuma's sixth wedding, and was attended by his other three wives Sizakele, Nompumelelo and Thobeka Zuma.
