He corrected himself on air, and later issued a statement on social media to apologise again.
"Yesterday night during a Newzroom Afrika interview by JJ Tabane, I mistakenly referred to ventilators as vibrators. While I did correct this during the same interview, I once again tender my unreserved apology for the slip,” he wrote.

Minnie shared the video and said she was sure what he meant, while Ma Yvonne Chaka Chaka told the TV personality to calm down.
