Jacob Zuma just can't seem to stay out of a courtroom. However, this time he is being sued by one of his wives.
Tobeka Madiba Zuma is reportedly dragging Msholozi to court for child support. uBaba is expected to appear before the Durban Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, 18 August.
The former first lady is allegedly demanding R14 000 child support for their daughter, Ngobile. It has not been revealed if she wants to amount to be paid each month.
According to a source close to the family, Tobeka has not been at Nkandla in months and was sent back to her maternal home for counselling following fights with Zuma.

IOL reported that the fights allegedly began after Zuma's sim cards carrying "sensitive information" went missing.
She has allegedly not been living with the former head of state for at least six months, the publication added.
"Tobeka has not been living with Baba for some time now. Baba has moved on. She hasn't been to Nkandla in months. This doesn't come as a surprise," the source said.
Zuma will reportedly be represented by the same attorneys who represented him in his arms deal case.
For many, news of the trouble in Zuma and Tobeka's marriage comes as a shock. The former first lady often gushed about her hubby on social media.
Briefly.co.za previously reported Tobeka shared a photo of her playing footsie with Zuma in bed on her Instagram account.
She also posted snaps of the former president spending time with their daughter while teaching her to play musical instruments. However, Zuma has not featured in his wife's recent social media posts and we know why.

There is the risk that the project could erode pension funds through investments in projects managed by the government.
