The pics are real – but the young woman in the intimate snaps is Jacob Zuma's daughter, according to News24.

The pics are real -- but the young woman in the intimate snaps is Jacob Zuma's daughter, according to News24.

"That is my sister. What is wrong with my father kissing his daughter?" the president's eldest son, Edward  reportedly told the outlet.

"There is nothing wrong with that photograph."

Edward "was emphatic" that she is a blood relative. This after photos of the young woman, (believed to be 19 years old) kissing the 74-year-old on the cheek went viral, supposedly after a Lindokuhle Dlamini (19) shared them on Facebook.

She captioned it: “He is not just a blesser, we are inlove and I am grateful for all that he has done for me, much love. Xo xo."

But even though the selfies are real, Edward says the Facebook account that posted them is not. Lindokuhle is not her name, Edward insists, and she's not 19.

The hoax account has since been deleted.

A blesser, or sugar daddy, is an older man who gives a younger woman money or gifts in exchange for sex.

In his Youth Day speech, the president spoke out against the "blessers" phenomena.

"We need to protect our youth, especially young women and girls, from abuse and exploitation through new shocking phenomena in our country such as the so-called sex parties or sex stokvels known as the mavuso," he said.

"The long-term impact on their lives, and also on our successful fight against HIV and Aids is too ghastly to contemplate," he said.
