Jacob Zuma to marry again soon?

2008-01-04 00:00

A Rumour is doing the rounds that the newly elected president of the ANC, Jacob Zuma, is to get married this month.

Reliable sources informed The Witness that Zuma is expected to wed Nompumelelo Ntuli during a private ceremony at his Nkandla homestead.

Inkosi Bhekumuzi Zuma of the Zuma clan in Nkandla confirmed that lobolo has been paid in full for Ntuli, but claimed ignorance of any impending wedding, saying he was away from home.

It has also been reported that Zuma is in the process of paying lobolo for Thobeka Mabhija (35), with whom he has two children.

Those close to Zuma could neither confirm nor deny the wedding rumour. His private secretary, Nontokozo Luthuli, who claimed to be in Johannesburg with Zuma, said she was not aware of such a wedding. Another Zuma aide, and administrator of the Friends of JZ website, Ranjeni Munusamy, said she was “still on leave” and therefore did not “know anything”.

She referred The Witness to Lakela Kaunda, another spokeswoman. She could not be reached as her phone was off.
