Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma is not losing any sleep over media reports surrounding his personal life, he told journalists in Pretoria on Sunday.

"We differentiate between personal matters and matters of the country," he said.

According to media reports this week, one of Zuma's wives had an affair with a bodyguard, who was the father of her unborn child. The bodyguard then committed suicide.

The presidency on Friday issued a statement accusing the media of "undermining" Zuma and his family's right to privacy and dignity.

During the brief question and answer session at a World Cup media briefing, Zuma said he would like to see former president Nelson Mandela at the soccer spectacular.

Whether he attended was "up to him", Zuma said, failing to clear up confusion over whether Mandela would attend or not. Zuma said the former president had aged, but was also very "passionate" about the games.

"Whether he will be there or not is up to him. There is absolutely no big thing about it... If he is there it will be a bonus for this tournament."
