Thabo Mbeki Is Younger Than His Wife. This Is Their Age Gap

Former President Thabo Mbeki and his wife, Zanele Mbeki, have a 4 years age gap between them. Now it is Mrs Mbeki who is 4 years older than the former statesman.


In today’s society it is still quite strange to find that a man is younger than his partner.

President Mbeki and his wife of 47 years have enjoyed their long time marriage despite it producing no children.

The couple met in London while the former president was still in exile and studying.

In a modern society which expects marriage to produce children, President Mbeki and Mrs Mbeki have chose their love over everything.

Mrs Mbeki has been constantly by the side of President Mbeki from the time he was in exile to the time he was Deputy President and President of the country.

The couple are always seen together in public engagements such as the State Of The Nation Address and funerals of well known people.

It is great to see how their love has kept them going for almost 5 decades.
