South Africa's Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa admits to having an extra-marital affair 


Cyril Ramaphosa, South Africa's Deputy President has admitted having an extra-marital affair, but denied reports of multiple affairs. Speaking after allegations about his private life were published in newspapers, he accused political opponents of trying to smear him.



Ramaphosa's private emails were apparently hacked into to prove an affair between him and a medical doctor. The emails reportedly suggest he also had a series of affairs with young women, and had unprotected sex.



The deputy president admitted he had had an affair with a doctor eight years ago, but said the other women named in connection with him were students he and his wife supported to further their education.



Ramaphosa had tried to block publication of the allegations in the courts, arguing that his private affairs were not in the public interest. He also said he would ask the country's inspector general of intelligence to investigate the hacking of his emails. "I had a relationship with only one person and it ended. I dealt with it with my wife," Ramaphosa told South Africa's Sunday Times.



"I have to be prevented at all costs from ascending to the position of president of the ANC. Some have even said it will be over their dead bodies. I have not committed any crimes, I have not stolen any money, I have not looted state resources. But I am being targeted and smeared" he said.



He and Jacob Zuma's ex-wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma are the front runners to replace Mr Zuma when he steps down as ANC president in December. The leader of the ANC automatically becomes the party's candidate for president of the country.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage.

This is w…
