Anecdote by Tombi, a family friend: "Jan Christian (Klein Jannie) Smuts had a pet meerkat which gloried in the name Tchome (spelling...the politician); unfortunately when Jan called the 'kat it sounded very like Tombi....very often the meerkat and I would appear together! If it liked you (and it liked me) it piddled on you....if it didn't like you it bit you! Tough choice!"
