I need help from my #birdwatcher friends please?

I took this picture in Gauteng, South Africa and have no idea what it is.

+Dick Whitlock +Lord Parker any ideas?

Thanks +Lord Parker I'll look him up. I've never seen one here in the 12 years I've been here
 
Doesn't seem that it's a Muscovy - I will keep looking.
 
It does fit the description of one, with it's red mask and clawed feet. they do come in different colours, some white, some white and black, but always the red mask and claws
 
Yes it does fit the description, though this one has very distinct iridescent green feathers. Also, it seems the Muscovy is not found in SA.
