The Isaac Kgosi story, which hogged newspaper headlines throughout 2014, is a textbook example of what happens when journalists bombard the reader with an avalanche of information that does not necessarily enrich the universe of discourse. In journalese it is called clutter, or obfuscation.

Last month a certain Liver Tembo wrote a rather over-cooked rebuttal, in the Weekend Post, to a series of allegations published in various newspapers where his identity was mixed up with that of a certain Harry Tembo, who died in Phakalane under mysterious circumstances a couple of years ago. 

It turns out that the Tembo who died is not the same Tembo who was engaged as a building contractor for Kgosi's house located in Phakalane as was persistently reported, erroneously, in the press. Interestingly enough, even after this clarification was made none of the newspapers concerned, including this one, acknowledged that they were wrong.
