DAILYKENN.com -- Most would be taken aback to learn that any national leader is currently and simultaneously married to four women.
When asked if they can correctly identify that leader, most would likely guess the culprit to be the head of some Islamic state where women are regarded as property and a harem of wives is viewed as evidence of high social standing.

and MaKhumalo (2012)
Zuma's polygamy is no scandal in South Africa, but is widely accepted with disregard, particularly among the nation's black majority.
Zuma has been married six times and divorced once. One of the remaining five brides committed suicide leaving the president with four sister wives.
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma – married 1972 – divorced 1998
Sizakele Khumalo – married 1973
Kate Mantsho – married 1976 – committed suicide in 2000
Nompumelo Ntuli – married 2008
Thobeka Mabhija – married 2010
Gloria Bongi Ngema – married 2012
Polygamy is usually condemned as an affront to women, as wives are collected as prized possessions and regarded as the ultimate form of being objectified. The regressive left, however, frequently gives a pass to misogyny when it merges with the end objective to displace Western culture. To that end we see feminists remaining silent in the wake of massive rapes by Muslim hordes in Europe and ignoring the polygamy of South Africa's president.
