Sometimes live media can be brutal. We all remember the 702 news reader who went on his f*ck rant? That was bad, and Mr Esterhuizen resulted in many a blush. However, what happens when a prankster makes it through the producers and gets live on the air?
On Women’s Day, Bongani Bingwa of 702 was hosting a talk show, when someone called in. It must have appeared very juicy to 702. Here was an MP who was calling in to spill the beans on what happened in the vote – why the ANC members voted to keep President Jacob Zuma.
It was supposed to be the scoop of scoops, an inside look at the conniving plans of the Zuma cabal. They decided to call him “Stanley”.
Instead, it turned out to be comedy of the highest order, with Bingwa and 702 on the wrong side of the punch line.
