LaConco opens up about her struggles after being dumped by former President Jacob Zuma – ‘I had to lower my standards’

Former President Jacob Zuma’s ex-fiance Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco has revealed she is trying to rebuild her life.

In her motivational speech, she revealed she fell from grace and became broke and poor.

She said she moved from a position where she could afford expensive brands to a position where she couldn’t afford meat.

It is not clear when or where the event was held but during her speech, she revealed she’s been through hard times and now she is trying to stand on her own.

“I’ve since learned that in marriage, it is important to be independent so that whatever your partner decides does not shake you. I’ve also learnt that your partner is there to complement you. I’ve been put in a ball of fire but I remained steady and unshaken. I couldn’t act fast but I waited for God’s time. I’m glad I didn’t rush my decision because I’m now content. I’m at peace with myself. I’m at a stage where I don’t bother anymore because all that matters is that I’m alive.”

She said there was a point in her life where she was so broke that she couldn’t even afford a braai pack.

“It was so bad so much that I had to compare prices before buying one. I had to lower my standards and acknowledge that things have changed. At that point I told myself that God is the provider. What I went through was just a boot camp. But now I love the woman I’m becoming. Even those who know my story are still surprised because they’ve never seen someone as strong as me.”

Her industry friends and followers commended her for sharing her story.

Actress Maduvha Madima said: “Sthandwa sam, you are power. You are powerful.”

Portia Msimanga commented: “You are a walking powerhouse.”

Lufuno Pearl wrote: “That was beautiful. It really hit home. Thank you so much for the wise words. We thank God for your wisdom. Stay blessed.”
