A hilarious “unholy” video of an unwitting naked woman walking into a Parliamentary committee Zoom meeting has gone viral on social media, embarrassing the Portfolio Committee on Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs.

But the video has provided enormous light relief for South Africans who have shared the images of the naked woman in the parliament meeting widely, even if the chair of the meeting, Faith Muthambi, thought the image was “unholy”.

In the video, committee member Nkosi Mhlangu is busy talking about medical officers who are having problems being paid. He then turns around and notices the naked woman and says “that is not clear” and covers his eyes, as if it will make the image disappear from the minds of the viewers. 

“It is not clear,” he repeated.

Muthambi then interjects: “Nkosi (chief) the person behind you is not properly dressed. We are seeing everything…yho.”

Nudity in Parliament meeting
“Please Nkosi, did you tell them you are in a meeting. It is very disturbing what we are seeing…and Nkozi Mhlangu, it is not happening for the first time. Whenever we meet you for the first time we see these unholy pictures. You are live on TV,” she said.

Mhlangu responded that he was “very sorry chair”.

“I was focussing on the camera. I did not know there was somebody behind me, sorry, sorry, sorry. I am so embarrassed chair,” he said.

Mathumbi then added that the same thing had happened in a meeting with another traditional leader in the North West.

Following the meeting Mathumbi issued a statement saying the COGTA parliamentary committee was “outraged” and embarrassed by the appearance of the naked woman in the video and that she planned to address the issue with the National House of Traditional Leaders.

“The naked woman was not part of the meeting. She was in the same room where the participant in the meeting was. We regret and condemn the incident in strongest terms,” Mthumbi said.

“It is regrettable that this kind of footage, which is embarrassing the committee, happens for the second time in meetings between the committee and the NHTL.”
