Former president Jacob Zuma’s partner has taken to social media to share the harsh realities of being in a polygamous marriage. She opened up about the pain of having to raise her young child alone. She received overwhelming support from her social media followers.
Nonkanyiso Conco came into the spotlight two years ago when the world learnt that the then 24-year-old was carrying Zuma's child. Her son, Sakh'muzi, is almost two years old now.
The new mom recently shared her feelings in an Instagram post. She thanked her son for being the reason that she works harder. She went on to share emotional experiences that she had to go through alone, like his first birthday.
She explained that some situations needed the presence of a father. Conco also shared that she was anxious about the questions her son would ask her one day.
"I have made peace that I'll attend school activities alone, travel the world with him alone and take all responsibility for raising a boy child and instilling the best values in his life"
Some of her followers misinterpreted the post and thought she was taking a jab at the former president. Conco was quick to correct them, explaining that she understood that men in polygamous relationships had different households to attend to.
