9 cute photos of president Ramaphosa and his wife

President Cyril Ramaphosa's wife, Tshepo Motsepe, is well-known. The South African first lady, on the other hand, is far from a trophy wife. Tshepo is a doctor and businesswoman who is the sister of local millionaire Patrice Motsepe.

The mom of four, who turns 68 this month, proves that behind every successful man is a strong, accomplished woman.

The rise of Dr. Tshepo from humble beginnings President Ramaphosa's wife was born in Soweto on June 17, 1953. She grew up in the remote settlements of Mathibestad near Hammanskraal, according to the South African government. The doctor is the eldest of seven children, including Patrice Motsepe, a rich mining mogul, and Bridgette Radebe, the wife of former energy minister Jeff Radebe.

Missing children are reunited with their family thanks to an award-winning journalist. The first lady isn't the only one. Dr. Tshepo Motsepe is a well-educated woman whose achievements in her chosen field are not eclipsed by her marriage to the South African president. The 57-year-old graduated from the University of KwaZulu-Natal with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. She also has a Master of Public Health degree in Maternal Child Health and Aging from Harvard School of Public Health. According to her profile on the presidency's website, Dr. Tshepo also attended a Social Entrepreneurship Certificate Program at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS). Despite the fact that she is married to a successful businessman and politician, Dr Tshepo wanted to succeed on her own. She worked as a medical doctor in hospitals including amongst them, Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in South Africa and Parirenyatwa Hospital in Zimbabwe - both of which are the largest in their respective countries.

Mr. and Mrs. Ramaphosa have been married for almost two decades. Dr. Tshepo Motsepe and President Cyril Ramaphosa have been married for 25 years. President Ramaphosa and his wife, it appears, prefer to keep the facts of their relationship private. Despite the fact that they married in 1996, there is no information on how they met. Dr Tshepo may be the third time lucky, and the South African president is still going strong, but she isn't Ramaphosa's first wife. In reality, before finding his true love in Dr. Tshepo, the billionaire was married twice.
