Numerous first ladies

South Africa's fourth President Jacob Zuma was accompanied by his three wives at his investiture ceremony in Pretoria. Being wives of the President all the three were the first lady(ies) in the country and all of them obviously had to be received as such in the function. The great epic Mahabharat talks of the great kings who had large number of wives, in some cases in hundreds, irrespective of the factual situation whether they could physically afford to sexually satisfy all of them and this is one culture that has undergone no change even in modern era where cultural aspect of the civilization is supposed to be at its peak. Be it a top celebrity or a commoner, man's propensity on sex is the same as it was thousands of years back. Wajid Ali Shah, the Nawab of Awadh at Lucknow had a full group of 100 wives besides a large number of concubines and that way it is not that much out of proportion if the President of Africa has only three as his wives and the first ladies of the country.
