South African fans of award-winning actor Menzi Ngubane have taken to social media to send well wishes and prayers for his speedy recovery after reports that the legendary actor is allegedly “battling for his life” at Charlotte Maxeke Hospital in Johannesburg.
Ngubane, who underwent a kidney transplant a decade ago, was apparently admitted with suspected recurring kidney problems. According to iHarare, he is in a “critical but stable condition”.
The sudden and upsetting news, which broke yesterday, has resulted in a #PrayForMenziNgubane hashtag going viral this morning.
Former DA Leader Mmusi Maimane said: “Bagaetsho. I am joining the nation today in praying for our national treasure. May he make it through this.”
Messages have poured in from across the nation with fans posting sentiments like “The whole of South Africa is fighting with you Tata, get well soon.”
