Fartescue Conco who is the father of Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD )star, Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco does not intend to leave this world without mending things with his daughter. Considering that their relationship is strained.
According to Daily Sun, the 94-year-old man wants to mend his broken relationship with his daughter, before he passes away.
It also turns out that she may be reluctant to give in, and he is begging her to come home so he can see her.
The Our Perfect Wedding host has allegedly blocked her father’s contact number and on social media, because she wants nothing to do with him.
“I miss my daughter, but it’s clear she hates me. I’ve been trying to reach her since 2018, but she blocked me on all communication platforms,” he explained.
Their relationship apparently was strained after he weighed in on LaConco’s damages. Which had been paid by former South African statesman Jacob Zuma for getting her pregnant.
According to the ailing father, the damages went to her mother’s home in the Eastern Cape.
“Was I wrong to be angry when things were not done according to our culture? Was I supposed to keep quiet? I don’t know. All I know is that I need to reconcile with my daughter so that I die in peace. Nonkanyiso my loving daughter, please come back home. Let us talk and put everything behind us, ” he said.
Fartescue said he is ailing and could pass away any minute from now. Hence the urgent need to reconcile with his daughter.
“I’m sick. I feel weak every day and sometimes my eyes get blurry. I can die anytime. But I’m afraid if I die now, I will die with a broken heart. And I will not be a good ancestor to Nonkanyiso,” he told the publication.
He told the publication that he wants to reconcile with his daughter because his ancestors visited him through a dream and said they won’t accept her. Should she die because she deserted her father.
“I raised Nonkanyiso. She went to the best schools. The English that she speaks on TV is because of me. I also pray for her well-being. I burn impepho and ask the ancestors to watch over her and bring her back home,” he added.
The old man said that she does not want the famed TV star’s money, because he is being taken care of by her siblings. He just wants her to come to see him so they can talk and mend their broken relationship.
According to LaConco’s stepmother, LaConco’s father adores his daughter and sometimes cries when he watches her on television.
Her father is always talking about her. I sometimes see tears roll down his face. We only see her on TV. But I pray every day that she visits us. We miss her so much,” said her stepmother Thoko.
