DJ makes twit of himself

The presidency had to issue a statement on Nelson Mandela’s health yesterday after a Johannesburg radio DJ got it all wrong, taking to Twitter to announce the former president was ill – after watching TV file footage from January.

The footage of the former statesman in hospital was being shown by broadcaster during a Year in Review package it was broadcasting to mark the end of 2011.

Kaya FM morning show host Bob Mabena, watching the footage with the sound turned off, then tweeted: “Breaking news – Nelson Mandela is in hospital.”

The news was then picked up by a South African news website with more than 30 000 followers, which said it was following up on the information.

Later the news site apologised, confirming that Mandela was not in hospital: “We apologise for following up an incorrect lead.”
