Ndlozi accuses public broadcaster of malicious misinformation

Published on

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has called out the public broadcaster for its inaccurate retelling of the incident that occurred at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court, describing it as “deliberate and malicious misinformation.”

The Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) Mbuyiseni Ndlozi took to Twitter on Thursday, 29 October 2020, to address the public broadcaster for its inflammatory and inaccurate report on video footage from the Randburg Magistrate’s Court. The video was of Ndlozi and the EFF’s Commander-In-Chief (CIC), Julius Malema confronting an AfriForum lawyer. In its reporting, the SABC claimed that the two were harassing a third party as they entered the court.

However, according to Ndlozi, the man in question was AfriForum’s legal representative. Ndlozi shared the inflammatory clip and further requested a withdrawal, apology and correction. He stated, “[The] SABC must withdraw, apologise and correct here on Twitter and live on TV.”

A few hours later, the public broadcaster did issue an apology on Twitter, stating, “The television strap on the clip says ‘Malema, Ndlozi confront witness during tea break.’ The third person involved in the heated exchange is not a witness and SABC News apologises for the mistake.”
