Namibian Presenter Unaware Her Crossing is LIVE Lights Up Social Media (vid/pix) by TMKsouth: 9:54am On Jun 10
"Jessica We Are Live"

Social media users cringed in unison on Wednesday after a video of an awkward moment between two presenters went viral on social media.

In the video NBC Namibia News presenter Elmarie Kapunda can be heard speaking about a boxing match, before turning to sports presenter Jessica Kaimu.

Kaimu interrupts her, saying: “No. We are not going to do that. You’re just going to greet me and say 'take it away'.”

There was an awkward pause before Kaimu is told that they are “live”.

The two then stare in silence until the broadcast is cut.

This prompted the hashtag #jessicawearelive to trend in Namibia and neighbouring South Africa.

A day after, a news team from the SABC, South Africa’s public broadcaster, did their own version of the cringe-worthy exchange:

Video: South African TV makes fun of #jessicawearelive (30 seconds)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3kxwl1qqI8

Some journalists say the faux pas may be linked to a recent NBC strike over pay and conditions.

Namibian journalist Jemima Beukes tweeted that she had been told Kaimu didn’t know they were live as “she didn't have an earpiece to communicate with the camera director. The recent NBC strike was partly because of a lack of equipment”.

Nonetheless tweeters have been enjoying themselves at the anchor’s expense with jokes and memes.

This is visual evidence of what happens in many facets of life.

There are people that look wonderful and good Physically or on camera, but if your Eyes are opened to see the things they do in the secret, you may not put food in your mouth for months.

There are People that we call all sorts of good names, titles and praises, but if you see the great abominations they do in secret places you will be shocked to your bones...

All that Glitters is not Gold..

They often look at their phones during ad breaks instead of rehearsing. I also hate presenters who mess up their lines in the first story or immediately after an advert, coz I ask myself what the heck they were doing during the break instead of rehearsing their upcoming intros.

That's just me venting - sorry grin,, you're right with your point.

When you can't work well with an annoying coworker... It's hard to deal with sometimes... only that you have to force yourself and act in a professional manner all the time.. I don't blame Jessica for loosing it for a moment....forgetting where she was made her human and not a teleprompter cheesy...

I wish I could hear/ see the banter behind the scene cheesy...

Jessica was right though grin

What’s the newsreader’s business asking Jessica about sports. I also hate people interfering with my job; biko do your part and pass the baton. Shikena.

But Jessica sef too serious, after she was told they were live; she should have acted as if nothing happened and continued.

NBC confirmed to South African media that the incident took place on Wednesday evening between the presenters, but said it had no further comment.

An account in Kaimu's name, which celebrated her first live broadcast on the show last year, did not comment on the incident.

Meanwhile, social media was flooded with reaction.

EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi in South Africa shared the video and was among those in stitches at the video. He said it was the “Jessica, we are live” moment that had him defeated.

Others shared hilarious memes and jokes about the incident.

Anyway, u can't like Namibia and dislike SA at the same time. Namibia was an SA colony, and still resembles SA in many ways.
