Former South African President Jacob Zuma has allegedly sent his wife Thobeka Madiba out of his house on the suspicions of betrayal.
According to Report, The incident is believed to have happened three weeks ago and an irate Zuma could not fathom that his wife, Thobeka Madiba had taken his sim cards without his permission.
The sim cards in question contain sensitive information that would implicate Zuma. Madiba was chased unceremoniously after the sim card argument got heated according to two witnesses who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Iharare reports.
A close family friend said Zuma discovered the betrayal and summoned a meeting with his closest aides.
It is alleged that the sim cards were suddenly found after Madiba’s return to the compound.
“All I know is that there was some kind of confrontation and thereafter she was shown the door. The thing about family meetings is that sometimes there is no fairness. I feel she was wronged,” said the source, indicating he is unsure of how many sim cards the former president keeps.
A second source, however, poured cold water on the claims that Thobeka had anything to do with the missing sim cards, rather suggesting that she was the victim of polygamy gone wrong – with too many things starting to go awry.
“Look, there’s a guy who runs uBaba’s private affairs who is very toxic. He is the source of the initial claims that MaNtuli poisoned uBaba. We now know, so many years later, that there is no evidence to link her to the poisoning – if there was any poisoning at all,” said the source.
Zuma is currently out of the country. He is on another trip to Cuba, where he has been receiving medical help.
The source further claimed this is all a trick to discredit Zuma’s wife “Had she fell for the trick, it would have rendered her persona non grata. Now there is some confusion which we hope uBaba will clear when he returns from Cuba,” said the source.
Zuma’s spokesman Vukile Mathabela declined to comment, saying he could not comment on the president’s private life. “We will check if there is a family member appointed to speak on the matter and revert to you,” said Mathabela.
