Durban: South African President Jacob
Zuma is to become a father for the 22nd time as his fiancee is
pregnant, a media report said.

Zuma`s fiancee Bongiwe Gloria Ngema, who recently
accompanied the 68-year-old polygamous President on a state
visit to China, is expecting a child next year, the `Ilanga`
newspaper quoted her close friend as saying.

Ngema already has one child with the President and
a wedding date has been set for December, which will bring to
four the number of South Africa`s First Ladies.

Reports of Ngema`s pregnancy comes only a fortnight
after the arrival of President Zuma`s 21st child who was born
to his second wife amid claims that the newborn boy could be
the result of an affair between his mother and her bodyguard.
The President, however, has dismissed the claims as
"malicious rumours".

Zuma was forced to make a humiliating apology
earlier this year following the birth, out of wedlock, of his
20th child to the daughter of a family friend.
