Avoid calling presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, “Mrs Zuma,” to avoid falling out with her.

A journalist had issues with her on Friday when she referred to the former AU Commission chairperson by that name.

The encounter took place in Stinkwater, outside Pretoria, where Dlamini Zuma had taken her campaign to ascend to the highest office in the land.

The journalist had tried to press Dlamini Zuma for comment on the country’s political developments, and an agitated Dlamini Zuma gave her a dressing down, telling her in no uncertain terms that she was “Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma”.

Dlamini Zuma, who had been walking to her car to leave the area, literally stopped the procession and gave the reporter a tongue lashing, telling her that she said she had worked hard to earn the title.

Dlamini who have four children with Pres. Zuma refused to answer “political questions” from the media.


Dlamini Zuma was flanked by controversial Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Prophet Mboro.
