As if speaking directly to her son, Conco then said, should he find himself in trying circumstances or was engulfed with confusion, he needed to remember that she was a single, young parent who had her own aspirations and dreams.
She told the publication that the post was “a declaration of a young woman who is marrying a polygamous man” and she had made peace that theirs was not an ordinary union.
“Any person with common sense would understand that a man who was a head of state and has such a large family wouldn’t have time for things like walking a child to a park, attending doctor’s appointments or just to buy ice cream at a mall every day,” said Conco.
“We all know for a man like Mr Zuma it’s impossible to run family errands every day or to be there for every special day. He missed our son’s first birthday celebration I hosted last year because he was out of the country, but this year could be different. He misses many of our son’s milestones. However, we can’t expect him to be there every day.”
However Zuma could not be reached for comment and his family spokesperson also declined to comment on the issue.
Nonkanyiso was also unreachable when contacted.
