Johannesburg: South African President Jacob Zuma is apparently set to become a father for the 21st time.
He is said to be expecting the new baby with his second wife, Nompumelelo Ntuli (better known as MaNtuli), amid rumours that their relationship is on the rocks.
Officials in the presidency pulled a veil of secrecy around the latest revelations.
"It is a family affair and I am not willing to comment on this matter," 24.com quoted Zuma`s spokesperson Vincent Magwenya as saying.
He refused to acknowledge that the matter is in the public interest since taxpayers will have to support yet another child of the President.
