Mbalula outs businessman over lavish gift for daughter
Tombstone entrepreneur Lebohang Khitsane has emerged as the man featured in a widely shared video giving his school-going daughter a Porsche for her 18th birthday.
ANC elections chief Fikile Mbalula shared the video in a tweet on Friday‚ stirring up a lively debate when he asked: “What do you think. Would you buy your child a Porsche for a birthday ? Maybe for excelling getting distinctions?”
In the video a man is seen covering the eyes of a school pupil carrying a bouquet of red flowers as they walk passed parked cars‚ watched by classmates. “I’m going to faint‚ wait‚ wait‚” she says just before he reveals a covered white Porsche with Gauteng registration plates.
“Happy birthday‚” he says and the two embrace‚ with the tearful daughter saying: “Thank you dad”.
His nearly 1.4-million followers quickly responded‚ both favourably and negatively.
A show off at school!! Can't this guy eat his money more discreetly? He will blame the white media when they climb on him after this.— Mpho.D.Rambuda (@RambudaM) April 6, 2018
