A politician apologised after his wife walked into shot completely naked during an online parliamentary meeting.
Inkosi Xolile Ndevu, a member of the National House of Traditional Leaders, a body of 23 traditional leaders in South Africa, was talking about deaths from Covid-19 in the province of Eastern Cape during a cooperative governance and traditional affairs meeting on Tuesday, March 30.
Video widely shared on social media shows Inkosi explaining how Eastern Cape is working with local doctors in handling coronavirus cases – at which point his wife suddenly appears behind him in full frontal nudity.
Shocked by her X-rated cameo appearance, Inkosi's colleagues can be heard bursting into laughter as committee chairperson Faith Muthambi quickly intervenes.
She tells him: "Inkosi, people behind you are not properly dressed. We are seeing everything.
"Please, Inkosi, did you tell them you are in a meeting. It is very disturbing what we are seeing.
"Whenever we are meeting with you, we see these unruly pictures. You are live on television."
Inkosi covers his face with his hands and apologises: "I'm very sorry. I was focusing on the camera and not behind me. I'm so embarrassed."
He explained the following day: "This Zoom technology is new to us and we were never trained. Our houses are not built so we can have privacy for these meetings.
Inkosi added that the meeting began at around 7pm and was due to finish by 10pm, but overran so he moved to the bedroom.
He said: "As the meeting continued after 10pm, my wife came in to use the bathroom and was unaware I had the video feed on. I apologise."
Ikosi Sipho Mahlangu, chairman of the National House of Traditional Leaders, released a statement to urge the public not to share the footage online.
He said: "The distribution of such explicit material that violates the dignity of the affected parties and their family does not show compassion and ubuntu (humanity), which we are accustomed to as South Africans."
