Lobola for life

What sits behind it? Ms Helen Zille, the Western Cape premier, yesterday received a "cow" of different colour as a gift. Past Charles George of the  Home of Compassion in Delft and community members, delivered the cow made of fibre glass, to Leeuwenhof her official residence, as a gesture of gratitude to Zille.
