Yizo Yizo star and actor Jabu “Gunman” Kubheka’s wife Cynthia Khumalo has made a shocking discovery.
Khumalo, who was in a customary marriage to Kubheka for the past 10 years, was horrified to learn that her late husband had sired 24 children.
This came to her attention when Kubheka’s children, a group of about 14 kids, were called to climb onto the podium during her hubby’s memorial service last week.
On the day of the funeral, 10 more kids were introduced during the service in Soweto, south of Jozi.
Khumalo said that she only knew of four kids, their first born, two from his previous marriage and one from Durban.
“I got to know about the other three kids when he accompanied me to a gynaecologist. The doctor asked him if he had any kids, and he said he had four children,” she said.
The grieving widow said she feels disrespected because some of the children were under the age of 10, meaning Kubheka fathered them while married to her.
“His family betrayed me. I wish they had told me. I was going to be the mother of the nation,” she said laughing.
She said when she returned home in Soshanguve, Pretoria, after the funeral, she asked one of her husband’s closest friends about his kids.
“He told me they had counted 24 of them, I was shocked,” she said laughing.
She said that she once met one of his two nyatsis who live in the same area as her in Soshanguve.
“I was driving my late husband’s car and people thought it was him.
“When they got to the car they were surprised to find that it’s me, his wife.
“They only knew his girlfriend with whom he had a little baby,” said Khumalo.
She said she demanded that they take her to Gunman’s baby mama’s house.
When they got to the place, the nyatsi confirmed she had a baby with Kubheka but that the deceased had left her for another woman in the area.
