Is it right? is it wrong? or is it straight pimpin? That is the question on everyone’s lips….
A few days back, Traditional Venda chiefs gave SABC acting chief operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng a wife, a cow, and a calf,
Women were lined up in Thohoyandou, Limpopo, on Wednesday for Motsoeneng to choose one.
He 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.
“The girls were around 10 and they paraded for him to choose. He chose the one he liked,” Mudzi executive secretary Humbelani Nemakonde was quoted as saying.
“All the girls were there with their parents. Their parents knew what was going to happen and they all agreed.”
The woman Motsoeneng chose was pictured in the newspaper bare-breasted next to him. She is 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, but now a complaint about SABC acting chief operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng being given a wife as a gift has been lodged with the Commission for Gender Equality.
“We will not be providing the details on the merits and the demerits of the case as this will prejudice the investigation currently under way,” spokesperson Javu Baloyi said yesterday.
In closing, I guess is safe to say pimpin ain’t dead…it just moved to Limpopo
