Zuma not beyond reproach – Azapo

2010-02-04 10:43

THE Azanian People’s Organisation (Azapo) has said President Jacob

Zuma is not beyond reproach on the matter of the child he fathered last year

with a woman who is not his wife.

“His conduct is shameful not only to the nation but even to his

family, especially his children who are now adults and look up to him for

counsel,” says spokesperson David Lebethe.

“It’s about time for the man to know that he is not only

accountable to his kinship and his organisation but to us all and that he is not

beyond reproach.”

Azapo says the matter is not wholly private because he is not an

ordinary citizen.

Yesterday Zuma confirmed a Sunday Times report that he had fathered

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

He is married to three women and has a fiancee.

Critics suggested the birth of the child showed he was not

practising the government’s policies towards HIV/Aids prevention.
