By Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo and Ed Cropley JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A South African sign language interpreter accused of gesticulating gibberish during a memorial to Nelson Mandela defended his "champion" performance on Thursday, but said he may have suffered a schizophrenic episode while on stage.

Millions of TV viewers saw Jantjie interpreting on Tuesday at the Mandela memorial attended by leaders from around the world, but South Africa's leading deaf association on Wednesday denounced him as a fake, saying he was inventing signs. I think that I've been a champion of sign language," he told Talk Radio 702.

Last year, it commissioned the Fair Labor Association to investigate suppliers' factories. "While they (Pegatron) have found no evidence of any link to working conditions there, we realize that is of little comfort to the families who have lost their loved ones," Apple said in a statement.
