LaConco Sends Heartfelt Birthday Wishes to Ex-Fiancé Jacob Zuma and Son
Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco, the former reality TV star and ex-fiancé of former South African President Jacob Zuma, took to social media to wish her ex and their son Sakhaumuzi a happy birthday. Jacob Zuma celebrated his 81st birthday on April 12, the same day their son turned five.
Memories of Treasure
In a lengthy birthday note, LaConco expressed her joy and reminisced about the memories of their past together. “This day brings back so many memories of treasure. Wishing you both health, prosperity, genuine love, peace, loyalty, and all that’s great for you. Happy birthday bab’wakhe and happy birthday Sakha,” she wrote.
Last Year’s Sweet Message
This isn’t the first time LaConco has expressed her love for the father of her child and their son. Last year, she posted another sweet message on social media, saying they are her treasures. “April 12, a date that will forever be a celebration of my treasures. Happiest birthday bawakhe [father of my child] and Sakhaumuzi. Nina baka Lugaju kaMantomela kaShisa, Mashingizela ashiye impi yakhe [praise poem],” she wrote.
Private Relationship Made Public
LaConco has previously spoken about wanting to keep their relationship private but being unable to due to outside factors. “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. No one gets into a relationship, especially if you are young, to face the circumstances I went through. I had to come to a point where I had to accept the situation, and these are the circumstances. OK, this is it,” she said.
In an episode of the Showmax reality show, “The Real Housewives of Durban,” LaConco insinuated that she was raising their son with her mother due to Zuma’s absence. “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 in the situation I am in today. I don’t think the scars will ever heal,” she said.
Despite the challenges they have faced, LaConco continues to express her love and well wishes for Jacob and their son. It remains to be seen whether the former couple will reconcile, but for now, they seem to be focused on co-parenting their child.
