A 19-year-old girl has posted a series of selfies of herself and South African President Jacob Zuma in public display of affection, claiming they are in love and appreciatimg all that he has done for her.
Lindokuhle Dlamini took to social media on Tuesday to share the pictures below with the caption: “He is not just a blesser, we are in love and I am grateful for all that he has done for me, much love. Xo xo.”
The word “blesser”, or sugar daddy, is a common phrase in South Africa, meaning an older man who gives a younger woman money or gifts in exchange for sex. Her Facebook account has since been deleted but the pictures were circulated on social media on Wednesday.
The Presidency has said it will look into the origin of the photographs. “We will check the matter,” Presidency spokes person Bongani Ngqulunga said.
Zuma is a polygamist who has been married six times and is estimated to have 20 children.
