zumaJohannesburg, South Africa, Feb 2, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The South African President Jacob Zuma has been saved from the possibility of an ugly discussion over his love child by the African national Congress, the ruling party in the country. In a press statement released by the party, the leaders commented that they did not want any discussion or storm brewing on something that is strictly in the realm of the personal life of the President and the woman involved. The African National Congress also stated that the decision of two adults to be engaged in a consensual relationship is in no way the concern of the society.

The South African President is married to five women already. The child that he fathered out of wedlock with Sonono Khoza took the count of his children up to 20. According to South African customs, he paid compensation for the pregnancy. Of course, the emergence of this news has added fuel to the already raging controversy around the President’s sex life. Sometime back, he had been grilled on a rape charge, from which he obtained acquittal, but admitted that he did have sex without protection.

The leaders of the opposition condemned the president’s promiscuous nature, claiming that an already married man should not be sleeping around, more so because he is the President of a country battling against AIDS and HIV. Some of the leaders claimed that he should be seeing a doctor for his sex addiction, and that his actions should befit those of the president of a country and not a “gigolo.” According to them, such behavior from the President of the country not only sets a bad example, but also presents an ugly picture.
