Thamsanqa Jantjie’s wife Siziwe had taken her husband for a check-up at a psychiatric hospital near Johannesburg on Tuesday, which suggested that he be admitted immediately.
“The past few days have been hard. We have been supportive because he might have had a breakdown,” she was quoted as saying.
Jantjie had been scheduled for a check-up at the Sterkfontein Psychiatric Hospital on December 10.
But the appointment was moved after he was offered the job to sign at the Mandela memorial which took place the same day.
