Jacob Zuma married his fourth (yes, you heard correctly) wife this weekend. The following is a photograph (and what a doozie it is!) that, I am embarrassed to admit, graced the pages of the Herald Sun in Australia yesterday:
How. Very. Unattractive. Besides the sheer hilarity (I am loving the designer sneakers – they go very well with the traditional Zulu garb), this image makes my skin crawl – primarily because I think he has bigger breasts than I do. Just to clarify…this is not about me slagging a traditional Zulu marriage ceremony. My association with traditional African heritage is a part of what makes me a South African – so I would never make light of that. I don’t, however, regard the sneakers as traditional in anyway, so they are fair game in my opinion!
