The VhaVenda King's spokesperson Mathivha Makonde says the King is calling on authorities to help him correct the wrong.

The spokesperson to the VhaVenda King Mathivha Makonde says there were people that gave the King tainted gifts.

He says that the King realises that he was made to do things that were not acceptable.

The King issued a statement saying that he is prepared to pay back the R17 million that he received in gratuitous payments from the VBS Mutal bank.

The offices of kings and queens in this country are not as sophisticated as you are portraying them.

Mathivha Makonde, Venda King spokesperson

There isn't a lot of money coming into the King's office. We don't have people who sit and look at the money that comes into the King's office.

Mathivha Makonde, Venda King spokesperson

He feels very pained about what happened to VBS and the hard earned money that belongs people.

Mathivha Makonde, Venda King spokesperson

Joanne probed Makonde on why the bank statement cannot be checked to see how much must be paid back.

Makonde responds that sometimes the King receives gifts in forms of material items.

You will not have that R17 million in the Kings account. I don't believe you will have a car registered in the bank statement.

Mathivha Makonde, Venda King spokesperson
