Following allegations buzzing on social media, that TV Star Menzi Ngubane is hospitalized with suspected recurring kidney problems, the family of the actor has released an official statement to clarify the matter.
Per menzingubanesa family statement:
The family of Menzi Ngubane notes with concern the recent spread of social media reports that our father and husband, Menzi Ngubane is critically ill.
The family is also aware that due to the spread of this inaccurate and unverified news, his fans have even gone as far as sending their messages of his speedy recovery on social media, spawning an unwarranted social media panic. We understand their concerns and support for Menzi, but as the family, we appeal to South Africans to refrain from spreading news that have not been verified and confirmed by the family.
To this end, we wish to continue as the family to offer him the support he needs following his recent visit to the doctors. It is this visit that has been grossly exaggerated by newspapers and social media users. “I would like to confirm that my husband is receiving family support and recuperating after doctors were concerned about his health,” said Sikie Ngubane.
