Renowned Masvingo based poet Abel Mauchi known as Shefu Mudhesve has dismissed fake messages circulating on social media claiming that he passed on.
A message was circulating on various social media platforms announcing that Mudhesve had died.
“So Sad: Prominent Masvingo poet Abel Mauchi aka Shefu Mudhesve has died,” read part of the message.
“He was vomiting blood.
“This comes after Mauchi’s sudden illness from the 20th of November when he
began vomiting blood.
“Mauchi went on to complain of failing to eat and he went to Nemamwa Clinic were he was put on drip and got some injections, unfortunately even after all this had been done, Mauchi’s condition continued to worsen until he had to proceed to Morgenster Mission hospital.”
Mauchi said the message was not true, however he admitted he had not been
feeling well lately.
“Yes I have not been well but, I am still alive,” he said.
