One of former South African President Jacob Zuma's sons has died.

Vusi Nhlakanipho Zuma, who was born in 1993, was the youngest son of Mr Zuma and his late wife Kate Mantsho.

He died on Sunday night after a short illness, reports say.

A source close to the former president told the BBC that Mr Zuma was "very distraught over the passing of his son”.

Vukile Mathabela, the media liaison for the 76-year-old former head of state at the presidency, confirmed the news of the death to local media outlet News24. He also said that details would be released later today, once a family spokesperson is appointed.

US civil rights activist Jesse Jackson posted his condolences on Twitter, saying that he is “sending prayers” to the Zuma family.
