House and car for Semenya
AFTER A tumultuous year, Caster Semenya’s luck seems to be tur ning. This week she received a new car and tomorrow ANC Youth Leaguel president Julius Malema will hand over to her the keys to her new home.
Jacob Lebogo, league secretary in Limpopo, said the house the league donated was built to celebrate Semenya’s achievements and to “motivate her to focus on her athletic career irrespective of negatives said about her”.
Semenya, 19, has also landed the role of brand ambassador for a car manufacturer and has been sponsored with a brand-new car for the next 12 months.
Great Wall Motors SA handed the keys to a new GWM CB150 ME with her picture and name branded on its sides and announced that she would be their brand ambassador. She has yet to get a licence.
