Former South Africa President Jacob Zuma and his 25-year-old girlfriend, Nonkanyiso Conco have split up over unknown reasons, according to reports in South Africa.
Nonkanyiso is said to have moved out of the home Zuma, 78, was renting for her at a high-end estate in Durban, and relocated to her mother’s home in Eastern Cape.
South African daily, Sunday Sun reports that Zuma’s family instructed Nonkanyiso to keep the separation under wraps. She has since deleted all photos of Zuma on her Instagram page.
Nonkanyiso’s estranged father Fartescue Conco confirmed her daughter is now living with her mother. Nonkanyiso and Fartescue have not been in good terms for a couple of years.
It is alleged Fartescue became unhappy after Zuma failed to complete all the required rites and rituals for their relationship and the two-year-old boy the couple share.
Early this year, Nonkanyiso made a confusing Instagram post that appeared to suggest that Zuma was not helping her raise their son.
“I have made peace with that I’ll attend school activities alone, travel the world with him alone and take all responsibilities on raising a boy child and installing best values in his life,” part of her post read.
She later denied painting Zuma as a deadbeat father, saying he has always supported her and their son.
