It had to happen. Why would a reasonably attractive young woman want to marry an old fart of 68 if not for creature comforts other than those of a connubial nature? I don't see how he can possibly satisfy them sexually, no matter how much Viagra he takes. Just another bunch of scheming frigid bitches.
Scandal as Zuma's second wife snubs his wedding to Thobeka MabhijaAccording to a family insider, Zuma's new bride and wife No 3, Thobeka Stacey Mabhija, and his second wife, Nompumelelo Ntuli, known as MaNtuli, are extremely jealous of each other.
They have been in an ugly war of attrition since they both moved to the president's homestead in eNkandla, northern KwaZulu-Natal, a few years ago.
This, the insider said, culminated in MaNtuli boycotting the president's latest nuptials on Monday, raising the eyebrows of the VIP guests.
By contrast, Zuma's first wife, Sizakele Khumalo, known as MaKhumalo, attended both the udwendwe traditional wedding ceremony and the reception in the evening.
A painfully shy woman, she has been the rock supporting Zuma in his trials and tribulations.
She even smiled for the cameras and was praised by speaker after speaker for her resilience.
But VIP guests quizzed each other and the family about MaNtuli's whereabouts.
"It is an open secret that the two do not see eye to eye," a family member told The Times on condition of anonymity.
"Nobody knew where she went on Monday, but I understand she spent some time with her family in Durban rather than attend the wedding of her bitter rival."
It is not the first time that the two wives have openly shown their disdain for each other.
After Zuma delivered his state-of-the-nation speech in Parliament last year, Mabhija appeared to shove MaNtuli aside to position herself closest to the president for a photoshoot.
Zuma was standing between MaNtuli and MaKhumalo when Mabhija appeared to elbow her way between him and MaNtuli so that she could stand closest to him.
"Parliament was one of their first fights in public," said a family member.
"As a family, we are concerned about the fighting between his wives."
Mabhija is a well-known Durban socialite and was reported to have boasted about becoming the country's first lady even before Zuma became ANC president at the party's leadership conference in Polokwane at the end of 2007. She later denied saying this.
Mabhija has attended many official events on Zuma's arm.
Reports of bickering between MaNtuli and Mabhija about who should become first lady surfaced about two years ago, after Zuma tied the knot with MaNtuli. The Zuma family denied the animosity at the time.
