The Chief Operations Officer of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), Hlaudi Motsoeneng, received a wife, a cow and a calf from traditional Venda chiefs on Friday.
According to The Sowetan, Motsoeneng and other SABC executives were in the area for a meeting with Mudzi wa Vhurereli ha Vhavenda, a lobby group of traditional leaders and healers.
Mudzi executive secretary, Humbelani Nemakonde, was quoted as saying, ?The girls were around 10 and they paraded for him to choose. He chose the one he liked.
?All the girls were there with their parents. Their parents knew what was going to happen and they all agreed.?
The young woman Motsoeneng chose was pictured in the newspaper bare-breasted, standing next to him. She is said to be a 23-year-old Human Resources Management student.
He received the gifts because he was ?committed to his job and understands the strategic objectives of the SABC?.
