    Why are they always falling back on 'culture' as the excuse?

    You have to evolve with the times if you want to fit in with the modern world and all the luxuries that it brought about.

    You don't see English people still walking around with canes and bowler hats and Afrikaans people still wearing Voortrekkerkappies after all.

    It could also be reasoned that the 'culture' of Western civilization was slavery, but they also moved on from that...

    Johannesburg - The wedding of President Jacob Zuma to his fourth wife, Bongi Ngema, will be a private family ceremony in Nkandla next weekend, the presidency said on Sunday.

    The cost of the ceremony was to be paid by Zuma with there being no government expenditure involved, spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

    The privacy of the couple and family has been requested to be respected. Maharaj said reports in the media suggesting the state bore the maintenance costs of Zuma's wives, was incorrect.

    "The spouses pay their own living or household expenses, be it food, mortgages, lights, water and so forth. Nothing is paid for by the state in the four households of the spouses. They live in private homes," he said.

    The presidency did provide logistical and administrative support for spouse participation at state and official functions and provided a total of 60 domestic economy class flights per a year for child and child-minder travel. Transport costs for school-going children were also included.

    Otherwise, the living expenses of Zuma's children were borne by the family and not the state, Maharaj said.

    he doesn't we pay for it. Just like their flop party and everything else.

    Would I be flamed if I said that I don't like Zuma's culture?

    Grrrr....

    Zuma earns R2.5 million a year.

    According to a parliamentary reply to questions in 2010, the Presidency said support provided to the spousal office included:

    *Personal support staff (secretary and researcher);

    *Domestic air travel and accommodation, and international air travel and accommodation for official visits abroad approved by the president;

    *Cellular phones for spouses and their secretaries;

    *Equipment such as laptops and printers;

    *A daily allowance for incidental expenses on official journeys.

    While it is not specified by the Presidency, it is understood that the president’s wives are also entitled to medical aid and security. Zuma’s children are also provided for by the spousal office.

    Those under 18 may use up to 60 single domestic economy class flights a year, and school-going children may be assisted with transport to school. Children who are students and under the age of 27 also qualify for domestic flights.

    It could not be confirmed on Sunday what state benefits Zuma’s wives and children would receive when he was no longer president.

    News24 got article saying he will pay the costs of this wedding out of his own pocket.
    It's not the costs of the wedding that bothers us - but the cost of supporting yet another wife and no doubt there will be yet more children to enlarge the Zuma dynasty.
