Celebrities often have to deal with false reports about their own death and we can imagine how stressful this can be for you and your family.

The latest celeb to be hit by such sensitive rumours is Uzalo star Thuthuka Mthembu and she told Daily Sun that she is alive and well. Rumours of her demise became viral last week and she said she was heartbroken to learn that she died in a car accident.

The rumours left her legion of fans confused and worried about her. The actress told the publication that not only did the rumours hurt her but her family. “I’m alive and kicking. I’m not ill and I was not involved in a car accident. The news did not only hurt me but my loved ones.”

She said what hurt her was that most news outlets published that story saying she was dead without confirming with her.

Actor Israel Zulu was also recently hit with a death hoax. Through his PR team, Israel Zulu “laughed off” these death rumours and said he is very much alive and recovering at his home surrounded by family.

“The rumor of the passing of GP-MaOrange remains that: rumor. They are an annual occurrence without fail. Israel is very much alive, recovering at home with family, and in high spirits. He will be celebrating his birthday on the 28th of December, and maybe those wishing him dead will for once have an opportunity to wish him long life then. He saw the rumor and just laughed it off,” reads the statement.

The actor recently left Gomora due to illness. He said his illness started as some mild pains which he took as a passing phase. He added that they then made it difficult for him to perfom on the show.

“I love Gomora as a show which I have been close to from its inception, more so that it set up in my hood Alexandra township. At the same time I am the kind of actor who when I do what I like I want to be able to go full force, give it my all,” he continued.

He thanked the producers of the show and his fellow actors for understanding and for carrying him until the end, “I appreciate the show producers and fellow actors for their understanding and for carrying me until the end. I apologise to the multitudes of my fans for my exit and hope you continue to support the show, especially the young crop of actors who are really doing their best to make it exciting. I am currently receiving the best medical treatment, and I am in high spirits having passed what I believe to be the worst stage of my situation.
