Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
ON Friday night, millions of Generations viewers were shocked to see Jason Malinga wearing a "fong kong" Bafana Bafana replica jersey by Adidas.
Though the jersey looked like a genuine article, the "s" on Adidas, the makers of the official merchandise, was missing.
And yesterday, Constance Mokhoantle, the soapie's publicist, tried to justify why Jason, played by Zolisa Xaluva, was allowed to wear the "doctored" shirt.
Mokhoantle said Jason was the first character to wear the replica soccer jersey when the "soccer World Cup support costumes" were shot three months ago.
She said at the time they had not received official approval to show Fifa sponsors' logos.
"As a precaution the production decided to remove or unpick the embroidery from a genuine 'fong kong' item garment. After removing the 's', this process proved to be too difficult since the embroidery was too dense.
"They then instructed the sewing department to cover the entire logo with a piece of fabric. Later on, when they received permission to use the logo, the covering fabric was removed but the seamstress forgot about the missing 's'.
"It was simply a human error," said Mokhoantle.
Bemused bloggers had a field day on Monday with many calling for the head of the person responsible for the Generations wardrobe.
Adidas South Africa spokesperson Zobuzwe Ngobese said they saw the fake shirt and his office had sent a letter of complaint to the SABC.
"We are still waiting for their response," Ngobese said.
But SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said he was not aware of the letter. He said he would investigate the matter.
