At 70, most men are busy preparing to enjoy their “golden years.” South African President Jacob Zuma is not about to slow down.
Always smiling and poking fun at his opponents, Zuma is preparing to marry his sixth wife: Bongi Ngema.
The man is a lot of fun, and not a stranger to controversy. In fact I think he is a breath of fresh air in the political world. He never runs away from his shadow.
Now, before you judge him, know that polygamy in South Africa is legal, and well embraced in Zuma’s Zulu culture. Don’t pull a moral yardstick on the man for believing in the traditional ways of his ancestors. He is President. Not the Archibishop of SA!
Come next weekend in Kwa Zulu Natal province, Zuma and Ngema will tie the knot, and we are told his other three wives will be part of the ceremony.
If I were him I would have something to smile about too. Cheers, Mr. President. All is well that ends well.
