Masechaba Ndlovu apologises for coronavirus death toll tweet

Masechaba left listeners unimpressed after she questioned Anatii, who appeared on her Metro FM drive time show about having some sort of calling and his weight.

Ndlovu made the mistake while live-tweeting through a radio interview the minister had to clarify how the gathering restrictions of 100 people per event will be enforced.

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.
