3. Name: Kate Mantsho (deceased)
Sadly, Jacob Zuma’s third wife, Kate Mantsho died after overdosing on sleeping pills and malaria drugs in 2000. She was 44 years old at the time.
Born in Mozabique, Mantsho moved to South Africa where she and Zuma conceived five children together during their 18 years of marriage.
One of their offspring is Duduzane Zuma, who has made news headlines around the world for his involvement in #StateCapture and the Gupta scandal. Duduzane has a twin sister, Duduzile (Dudu) Zuma.
Mantsho was given a state funeral where Thabo Mbeki (who was the president at the time), and Nelson Mandela addressed mourners.
