NATIONAL NEWS - Media personality turned spokesperson to minister Nathi Mthethwa, Masechaba Ndlovu has had to issue an apology after mistakenly tweeting that South African people are dying from coronavirus.
“The message is unambiguous. People must listen to what the president has said. There is no ‘if’ or ‘maybe,’ people are dying. The death toll was at 64 yesterday, we now stand at 116. – Minister @NathiMthethwaSA #OneMessageManyVoices” tweeted Ndlovu.
Ndlovu made the mistake while live-tweeting through a radio interview the minister had on SAFM with Sakina Kamwendo to clarify how the gathering restrictions of 100 people per event would be enforced, especially for upcoming funerals and weddings from this weekend onwards.
