DSTV Accidentally Airs Mandela’s Obituary


Last night, Universal Channel (DStv 117) on MultiChoice’s DStv pay-TV platform mistakenly aired an “obituary” of Remembering Madiba Nelson Mandela who is still very much alive.

And now the TV channel is profusely apologizing for the “technical error”.

“Like any international broadcaster, Universal Networks holds obituaries ready for every major statesman in the world,” says Universal Networks International which programmes the Universal Channel on DStv.

“Universal Networks wishes to offer a sincere and heartfelt apology for the airing of such an announcement for Nelson Mandela which was broadcast last night on the Universal Channel due to a technical error by our team.”

“We unreservedly apologise to the Mandela family, to Universal Channel viewers and to DStv subscribers for the alarm and offense caused by this error. Our thoughts and best wishes are with Madiba and his family for a speedy and full recovery,”says Universal Networks International.

We would love to know your thoughts on this post.
