Menzi Ngubane recently had a health scare. The former Isibaya star reportedly went to the hospital for a check up. According to his wife, Sikie Ngubane was inaccurately reported by South African media. The news led to the hashtag #PrayForMenziNgubabe trending on Social Media. She released a statement regarding the matter.
“I would like to confirm that my husband is receiving family support and recuperating after doctors were concerned about his health, ” she explained.
The actor’s family thinks the spreading of inaccurate news led to panic. “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.”
They thanked fans for all their well wishes, loyalty and support. “We are aware that South Africans are concerned about his health and would like to thank them for their prayers, and appeal to them to respect hospital/doctor/patient confidentiality. Menzi wishes to take this opportunity to fully recover and get back to work as soon as possible,” the statement reads.
