Revealed: Jacob Zuma, his wives set to star in their own reality TV show

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Jacob Zuma has an army of loyal followers, and there will be a few people who miss the days of his presidency.

Over the past year, we’ve been allowed a sneak-peek at JZ’s life through his illimuniating – and sometimes libellous – Twitter account: But now it seems we will be seeing more of the former president.

Jacob Zuma set to star in his own reality TV show

Famous reality TV producer Legend Manqele has uploaded a series of snaps from the Zuma family homestead in Nkandla, KZN. Manqele has teased his followers about a programme called Meet The Zumas, a no-holds-barred look at family life inside the polygamous set-up.

The producer has since confirmed he is shooting “a season of something” with Jacob Zuma, involving his wives and the daily occurences at the controversial estate. The cameras will delve deep into Nkandla, which was initially funded by taxpayer money on the sly before Msholozi was forced to repay the funds.

Who is Nonkanyiso Conco?

Legend Manqele is the creative brain behind Living the Dream with Somizi and Being Bonang. His speciality is taking some of the best-known names in Mzansi and tailoring them for their own TV shows. The exact content of what the show is about has been kept under wraps, but it’s thought that the journey of Nonkanyiso Conco will be their main focus.

Conco, aged 26, comes from Pietermaritzburg and worked as a director at Nomkhubulwane Culture and Youth Development Organisation, which aims to preserve the cultural practices of Zulu maidens. She will become Zuma’s seventh bride, and his youngest, as there is at 52-year age difference between the couple.

How many wives does Jacob Zuma have?

However, the pair are yet to tie the knot – some 18 months after the first announcement of their intentions to marry were made public. With five wives currently on the go, it’s understandable if Jacob Zuma isn’t in a rush. This show will also get to the bottom of when we can expect a ceremony to go ahead.

uBaba had kept his private life fiercely guarded while serving as a politician. With skeletons in the closet – or, secret underground bunkers – it was perhaps wise to keep prying eyes a safe distance away. But the family seem much more relaxed about sharing their life with the public, and their financial situation could be a factor.

Jacob Zuma is still fighting with the courts to ensure he doesn’t have to repay the R16 million of public funds (yep, again) he plundered to support his various legal defences while serving as SA’s head of state. Agreeing to become the country’s latest reality star may give the 77-year-old some fiscal breathing space.
