Former President Jacob Zuma’s fiancee, Nonkanyiso Conco, has joined Vuma FM.
Conco joined the Kwazulu-Natal based radio station last week and will host a show called ‘Women in Conversation with LaConco’.
Vuma’s programmes manager Patrick Bothata reportedly stated that they hired Conco because they were looking for someone passionate about women issues.
“She was the most promising, with more potential than the rest of the applicants. At the time of signing her, I did not know who she was until a story appeared in papers.”
Talking to Sowetan, Conco said she was excited and looking forward to grow in the media industry
“There are issues as women that we go through on a daily basis, and there is no platform to talk about them.
“We have a month to celebrate women but it’s not enough as there are challenges women go through almost everyday,” she explained.
“The show will encourage the listeners to be able to conquer challenges in life.
“My wish is to see a better society, an hour being on air is the best platform to reach people and give them a chance to voice whatever they are going through.
“That’s just me giving back to my community,” she told Sowetan.
