Controversial sex seminar at SABC going ahead - organiser

2016-02-17 11:44

Cape Town – The organiser of a controversial sex seminar on how to extract money from your boyfriend that’s advertised to be held at an auditorium of the SABC's Auckland Park headquarters says it will go ahead, although the SABC is calling it a sham.

Seduction expert and writer Mandisa O Mahlobo says she is ready for the R300 per person Girlfriend Allowance sex seminar advertised for the SABC Auditorium set for 19 March.

"There is something about a giving man that makes us wet! So dear men, Girlfriend Allowance is actually more for your benefit than us! Let's meet and talk Divas!" Mandisa O Mahlobo wrote on the Girlfriend Allowance poster on Facebook.

The Girlfriend Allowance is according to Mandisa O Mahlobo "a gift that a man gives to his woman willingly because he thinks of her as a queen not a prostitute. He understands that his queen needs to be able to pamper herself from time to time and beautify herself for both of them. Look, give it, don't give it, whatever action you choose, will tell us a lot about your manhood."

The SABC is calling the sex seminar set for the public broadcaster’s premises a sham, although Mandisa O Mahlobo says on her Facebook page the venue was booked and that the Girlfriend Allowance is not fake and will definitely be going ahead.

"We booked the venue at the SABC, we got it. Sadly, the SABC did not foresee such an avalanche of public outcry regarding this kind of gathering. They are currently announcing on every radio station that our event is a scam. It is not! It is legit."

Mandisa O Mahlobo says she spoke to the SABC spokesperson and will be meeting with him. "I told him, we just booked their auditorium, we had no intentions of undermining them, piggy-backing on their brand equity or attaching them to the event. We just wanted the venue, which we got."

In a statement SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago says "an event titled Girlfriend Allowance Seminar to be held on the 19th of March 2016, allegedly at the SABC’s office in Johannesburg” is a scam. "The SABC warns the public that there is no such event which will take place on the SABC’s premises".

He says the SABC "takes this matter very seriously and will be investigating this matter". "We applaud the public for being vigilant and making the SABC aware of this matter, and the public should not hesitate to contact the organisation should they have helpful information in this regard."
