Sasco condemns Zuma reports

2010-02-02 10:24

Media reports on President Jacob Zuma’s sex life showed disrespect

toward the elderly, the SA Students’ Congress (Sasco) said today.

“We condemn the irresponsible reports on President Zuma’s personal

life by journalists who have no respect for the elderly,” Sasco president

Mbulelo Mandlana told reporters in Johannesburg.

“As students we view the public discussion of such aspects of old

people’s lives as embarrassing and un-African.”

Mandlana was reacting to recent reports that Zuma had fathered a

child with soccer boss Irvin Khoza’s daughter, Sonono Khoza.

Zuma, who is said to have fathered 20 children, got married for the

fifth time last month.
