It's Afrikaans. In most Germanic languages you can string nouns together indefinately, so you can make up really long words that are not really used but are grammatically correct. What the word above means is sort of hard to follow but something like this: media conference announcement of the union of second hand motor salesmen who had a meeting where they decided to go on strike (or something like that, Afrikaans is a bit different from Dutch). If English still had this string-together rule there would be English words of near infinite length. And they would have words like "carsalesmenunion", "trainstationbuildingmanager". In Dutch, not writing them as one word would mess with the grammar and change the meaning.

She said she sold shoppers some super shoddy stuff, and shoplifters she sends to the sheriff. She saves cents since it is good sense to not waste cents because such nonsense would lead to no cents.

Hottentottententententoonstelling.

Hottentotten - old term for the Khoikhoi people.
tenten - tents.
tentoonstelling - exhibition.

The Khoikhoi didn't actually live in tents, but people made up this word combination because it sounds funny.
