Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane today said various departments within government is currently investigating what happened regarding the sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service. 

It is alleged that this is not the first time complaints have emerged about this same interpreter identified as Thamsanqa Jantjie. 

Chabane said government is looking into this matter but it has not been able to conclude this inquiry due to the schedule to organise the state funeral for the former president.

Chabane added that government will report publicly on any information that may be established and wishes to assure South Africans that government is clear in defending the rights and dignity of people with disability.
