- Nonkanyiso Conco has taken to social media to speak out about her challenges as a single parent
- The 25-year-old is engaged to former president Jacob Zuma and seems to be having a tough time
- But Msholozi's fiancée denies casting any shade with her post, adamant she was just sharing her struggle
Nonkanyiso Conco recently took to social media platform Instagram to shed some insight into her personal life.
The 25-year-old is currently engaged to former president Jacob Zuma and the pair have a 2-year-old son together.
In her post, Conco got a bit emotional as she expressed her gratitude to the little man:
“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."
Conco says he's the inspiration for her to work harder, asking the child to forgive any mistakes she makes as a single parent.
But some felt she was casting shade at Msholozi with her comments and Conco has since defended the comments made and her husband.
Sunday Tribune reports that Conco came up for Zuma, a busy man with a large family to take care of:
“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."
Conco made it clear she understood how life married to Zuma would be, adding that:
“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.”
Luckily, Conco has support from her family in these trying times as a 'single parent':
“Being there and raising a child, I’m doing it alone like any other woman who is in a polygamous relationship, otherwise daddy has always supported me and our son.”
