Our expert says:
Put it in writing to him, and to your boss and his, what happened, and that you don't appreciate being made to look foolish by him deliberately misquoting the advice you gave him. Suggest a rule that if he ever wants to quote to any client some advice you have given him, he must send you a draft of the e-mail or message he plans to send, for you to check it, or not to quote you at all. So it seems you have done the right thing.
Stop protecting and spoon-feding him - let his client recognize, if they haven't already that HE is lacking in some knowledge and skills its about him, not about you or South Africa.
Discuss this calmly with your manager, taking with you copies of the relevant examples and messages, and ask her advice about how he can be stopped from sometimes apparently working harder to make you look bad, than to make the company look good or to simply do his own job.
I suspect he is and always has been, out of his depth, and wants to evade criticism, and having recognized your sensitivity and vulnerability, wants to push some of his errors onto you.
Its your manager's duty to manage him and to stop him from behaving so unprofessionally, so maybe one of your pleasant questions to her should be about how she plans to do this, and how you could help her do so.
