At the age of 70, Jacob Zuma married his long-time fiancée, Gloria Bongi Ngema. The traditional wedding ceremony took place in April 2012 in Nkandla. The couple have one child together.

The businesswoman from Durban Heads was devastated by the loss of her mother and aunt to diabetes, and started the Bongi Ngema-Zuma Foundation to help raise awareness and combat the disease.
