If you are not so successful in real life, just fake it on Facebook and you will get thousands of admirers

A Facebook account in the name of Jimmy Mzwanele Manyi is being investigated by law enforcement authorities after the government’s chief spokesman said it wasn’t his.

The profile has more than 1 000 “friends”, including government officials such as Justice Ministry spokesman, Tlali Tlali, and trade unionists such as Castro Ngobese.

The Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) issued a statement on Monday warning Facebook users of the imposter.

The real Jimmy Manyi, the chief executive of GCIS, said he had never operated on the social networking site.
