How many children does Jacob Zuma have? Meet all his 23 children

acob Zuma is the father of how many children? What are the names of Zuma's 23 children? Jacob Zuma, the former president of South Africa, is indeed the father of the country. He is a busy man who has fathered at least 23 children, all of whom he is believed to adore.

How many children does Jacob Zuma have? Meet all his 23 childrenJacob Zuma with some of his children.

Here's a look at President Jacob Zuma's family.

In a television interview, President Zuma stated:

“There are lots of politicians who hide their mistresses and children to appear monogamous, but I choose to be transparent, I love my wife, and I am proud of my children.”

Some members of the Zuma family are well-known to the public and tabloids, while others want to remain anonymous. From oldest (43) to youngest (13), here is an unofficial list of previous First Children (10). Because not all of the names and dates are available, and many of the younger ones are still minors, we're keeping their identities hidden.

The older clan:

The eldest ten are largely the offspring of past wives Kate Mantsho and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, who is running for president. Kate and Jacob had five children when Kate tragically committed suicide in 2000. Dlamini-Zuma divorced Zuma in 1998 after having four children with him; the following year, she became a cabinet minister.

Mother: Minah Shongwe

Born: 1977

Edward Zuma, Zuma's eldest son and perhaps the most divisive, began law school at the University of Zululand.

He was detained in 2000 for allegedly rapping a fellow student, but the woman dropped the allegations (after receiving compensation, reported Noseweek). Edward has now made headlines for defaulting on a multimillion loan, owing a million dollars to his wedding planner, allegedly trading in illegal smokes, making xenophobic remarks, and failing to pay his son's upkeep.

On the plus side, Edward is the first (and so far only) president to have a grandfather. He is also extremely loyal to his father, defending him on subjects ranging from Nkandla and Zuma's genitals in art to Julius Malema's disparaging statements. Edward has been linked to at least 34 firms and is a director of nearly a dozen of them.

2. Mxolisi (Saady) Zuma (son)

Mxolisi is the oldest of Jacob and Kate Mantsho's five children. He and his four siblings grew up in exile in Mozambique, where they played on the streets, went to the local school, and learnt Portuguese. They moved to Zimbabwe after ten years, and then to South Africa in 1993. His mother died when he was 20 years old. He has financial interests in at least six investing and brokerage firms today, although he avoids the media and social media.

3. Msholozi Zuma (daughter)

Mother: Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma

Born: 1982 

Zuma's oldest daughter, Msholozi, was called after her father's clan. She is also the oldest of Zuma's children with his now-ex-wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, whom he divorced when Msholozi was 16 years old.

4. Duduzane (Zane) Zuma (son, twin)

Mother: Kate Mantsho

Born: 1984 

Brother Zane has a penchant for the opulent. In 2009, he spent a week cruising on a premium passenger ship that cost roughly R200,000. Despite the fact that it is nominally held by Mabengela Investments, he lives in a large house in Johannesburg with a fleet of expensive cars.

Dudu, Zane's twin sister, is equally known for her bling lifestyle. In 2009, she threw a birthday bash with a 600-person guest list, an open bar, and expensive champagne on tap. She is on the boards of many investment firms and launched African Star Communications, a public relations and events firm. Dudu Zuma started the Dudu Zuma Foundation to help disadvantaged women and children, with a focus on those at risk of suicide, after her mother committed suicide. Her high-profile marriage to Lonwabo Sambudla, who has been linked to tender irregularities and The Billion Group, appears to have terminated in 2016.
