5fm shock-jock Gareth Cliff has sparked the ire of bloggers and posters on social networking site Twitter after posting on his account: "Manto is dead. Good. A selfish and wicked bungler of the lowest order. Rotten attitude and rancid livers - all three of them."

Fuming bloggers then attacked Cliff's "disrespect for the dead".

Thato Mthembu posted: "It is a real shame when people in the public eye say things that are just so insensitive, out of order and simply callous."

- Former health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang died on December 16, 2009.
