SABC sportscaster Thomas Mlambo has issued an apology via his Twitter account for sharing pictures of the bullet-ridden body former footballer Marc Batchelor on the platform. Mlambo was among those who sent their condolences and shared Marc Batchelor’s dead body image on the social media platform.
Many accused him of having no respect for Batchelor, but he has disputed this, saying he had not checked the picture to make sure he wasn’t in it before posting it on Twitter.
I've removed the post…about Mark Batchelor
I was so disturbed by the pic…that I only viewed it in preview without opening it completely …and only saw holes in the window…
I had no idea…he was in the pic before I posted it…
I'm deeply sorry for this.
