Fake News: DD Mabuza is not dead

The office of the Deputy President, David Mabuza has assured the public that he is home and well. This follows numerous calls from concerned citizens regarding the health status of Mabuza.

On Sunday, the twitter was flooded with rumors about the passing of Mabuza, however, the Deputy President’s spokesperson confirmed that he is home and well.

“We would like to assure South Africans that the deputy is home and well,” said Deputy spokesperson Matshepo Seedat in a press statement.

Seedat added that anything contrary to this statement is a malicious and unfortunate rumor.

The past few months people have taken to social media asking about the whereabouts of the Deputy President.

On 22 July 2020, Mabuza reportedly canceled two scheduled Parliamentary question and answer sessions, allegedly due to his health.

Also, on the same day, the Parliament released a statement stating that the Deputy President would not be able to attend the meeting as he is not in good health.
