Beware of Manyi impersonators on Twitter

Sunday, April 3, 2011

Pretoria - Cabinet spokesperson Jimmy Manyi has called on Twitter users not to be duped by impersonators on the popular social media platform.

While Manyi, who is also CEO of Government Communications and Information System (GCIS), confirmed he created a Twitter account he said he has never tweeted.

"Those currently following tweets by a "Jimmy Manyi" on Twitter should be warned that they are following an impersonator/s," GCIS said in a statement.

It added that it was working with law enforcement agencies to clamp down on those who are impersonating Manyi.

"GCIS is concerned that these impersonators are misleading the public as Mr Manyi occupies a position associated with communicating critical information on behalf of Cabinet. We call on the impersonator/s to desist from engaging the public in the name of Mr Manyi," said the statement. -BuaNews
