The South African president and ANC leader, Jacob Zuma, reportedly fathered his 20th child with the youngest daughter of his childhood friend Irvin Khoza.
Khoza born 27 January 1948 in Alexandra is a South African soccer administrator.
Nicknamed “Iron Duke / Squveve”, he is the Chairman of Orlando Pirates Football Club, Chairman of the South African Premier Soccer League and by virtue of this, Vice-President of the South African Football Association.
His relationship with Orlando Pirates started in 1980, when he became its secretary and owner in 1991. As the Chairman of the Premier Soccer League, he was instrumental in securing the current sponsors of the league, Absa Group Limited.
He was also the Chairman of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Organising Committee South Africa, after serving as the Chairman of South Africa’s 2010 FIFA World Cup bid.
After the unveiling of Orlando Pirates new coach in Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, journalists grilled Khoza on the incident involving his daughter Sonono Khoza and his friend president Zuma.
Khoza lamented on how his friend Pres. Zuma got her daughter pregnant and gave her R50.
Khoza is married to Matina.
”One of his latest offspring, a girl, was born by my 39 year old divorced daughter.
”Sonono had a relationship with president Jacob Zuma and gave him his 20th child, named Thandekile Matina Zuma,” said Khoza.
Pres. Zuma, is a proud Zulu traditionalist, and as well as his polygamy. He has had a number of children out of wedlock.
In all, he has had children by seven women and is believed to have made a total of 22 children.
”My family is obviously not happy about the liaison and what he did. I am six years younger than pres. Zuma. How could he do that to my daughter.
”A delegation from the presidency visited us to discuss ”inhlawulo”, the customary Zulu damages payable when a child is born out of wedlock but we are not interested,” lamentes Khoza.
”When Sonono told me she was pregnant for the president, she had R50 in her hand and she said the president gave it to her.
”Who does that to a friend’s daughter?” asked Khoza.
President Zuma is to face a vote of no confidence come August 8.
