LaConco Opens Up About Her Relationship With Jacob Zuma

The Real Housewives of Durban are back with a bang and we love to see it. The second season of the show premiered today exclusively on Showmax and topped the Twitter trends list.

Nonkanyiso ‘LaConco’ Conco, who was very private about her marriage with former president Jacob Zuma during the first season of the show, has decided to finally speak about it this season.

The reality show star attracted the attention of Mzansi after it was widely reported that she was in a relationship with the former statesman. The ex couple had a son together, and Laconco gave birth to him on April 12, 2018.

In the first episode Laconco surprised Sorisha with a visit to have a heart-to-heart with her. A teary-eyed Laconco explained why their marriage ended.

There were a lot of people who meddled in their love and made it a public affair, LaConco said. “The position I am in… I found love and I stayed true to that love. But unfortunately, there were people who had an interest in that love and made it a public thing when it was not my intention,” she said.

She also revealed that she is raising her son with her mom. “No one gets into a relationship, especially if you are young, to face circumstances that I went through. I had to come to a point where I had to accept the situation and these are the circumstances. Okay this is it,” she added.

LaConco expressed her respect for Zuma. “I never knew I would be at a stage where I am raising my son with my mom. I never fell in love… to be at this situation I am at today. I don’t think the scars will ever heal,”

Prior to their conversation Sorisha had met up with Annie Mthembu who revealed that LaConco is single. “I don’t know if she is who she says she is or who she pretends to be. I don’t know if that makes sense…?” said Annie.

This angered Twitter users who said she is too invested in Laconco’s love life. @FeloMahapa tweeted ” I dont like uAnnie. She’s condescending. Why does LaC have to be a wife to teach you about the culture she has known and embraced her entire life? And why is she so obsessed about LaC’s love life?#RHODurban

LaConco, on RHOD always obeyed the Zuma family’s instructions to keep their family name out from the reality show. They believed that she accepted the offer to star in the reality show because she had a hidden agenda against them, “Already the Zuma name is being talked about almost every day in the media. We don’t want any drama as the family. Enough is enough. But we warn her not to bring the Zuma name into disrepute or else she will regret (it). We are really tired now as a family of people who tarnish our name and get away with it. But I’m not in any way saying she will do that,” said Jacob Zuma’s nephew Inkosi Simphiwe Zuma to Briefly

“She has the right to do whatever she wants to do as long that doesn’t cause pain to other people. All I’m saying is that she must not say or do things that might harm the Zuma family name, which I think was the ticket for her to get chosen for that role,” he added.
