Just yesterday Somizi Mhlongo received backlash after he joked that South Africa's transport Minister Fikile Mbalula had told him that the president was going to extend the Corona outbreak lockdown. 

This resulted in Fikile Mbalula laying false news charges against the personality. 

Today Somizi's employer the SABC have hoped on the case as well and have informed the media that they would also be looking into the matter as it also doesn't condone what Somizi did.

SABC Spokesperson Mmoni Seapolelo had this to say: 

 “Although Mr Mhlongo-Motaung’s utterances were not part of the broadcast of his programme on the station, we would like to put it on record that we do not tolerate any behaviour that is in contravention with the Government’s regulations under the Disaster Management Act on Fake News and information peddling. In line with our internal processes, we will also engage Mr Mhlongo-Motaung, investigate the matter and will be guided by our policies on an appropriate action to be taken,”
