Hlaudi Motsoeneng's SABC cow is pregnant.
The SABC's controversial and famously matricless acting chief operating officer was gifted a cow and a calf last month by a Venda community which stirred up national headlines when it appeared that Hlaudi Motsoeneng was also "gifted" a woman - something which the Venda community denied two weeks later in a bizarre press conference at the SABC.
Ellen Zandile Tshabalala, SABC chairperson, revealed on Friday to parliament that the cow is now pregnant.
She told parliament's portfolio committee on communications that regarding the disclosure of business interest that "Hlaudi Motsoeneng has disclosed the cow that he got from Venda".
"I thought I'll have an investment because the cow is pregnant and then I was gunning for the little calf," said Ellen Zandile Tshabalala.
Tian Olivier, the acting SABC CEO told parliament's portfolio committee on communications that the SABC has "implemented an asset tracking system that's part of the clean-up of the audit" of the SABC.
"Most of our assets have been tagged with a metal barcode. We have scanned them, we have recorded them in which office they are. So now on a regular basis we can go back and clean up on those assets if they move".
