Earlier this week it was reported that Isibaya actor Menzi Ngubane had been admitted to hospital with a recurring kidney problem. The reports published by Ilanga were so alarming the hashtag #PrayForMenziNgubane has been trending on Twitter. 

Following these developments, the actor's wife has released a statement slamming those misleading reports. 

“I would like to confirm that my husband is receiving family support and recuperating after doctors were concerned about his health,” 

The family also encouraged fans to refrain from spreading on the exaggerated claims. 

“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,”

Sikie Ngubane thanked South Africa for their support and well wishes. 

“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.”
