Widely spreading rumours have claimed that South African Actress Sophie Ndaba has passed away at the age of 48. It is false and harmful act.
The actress has reacted to the death rumours and she is not finding it funny. In her speech, Ndaba labeled the whole act “disheartening and horrible.”
Sophie had suffered a lot of verbal assault including body-shaming for her weight loss and now she is being tagged with death.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE on Ndaba said…
“I was at a meeting so my phone was on silent when the rumours started trending. My son who was at school at the time tried to call me but couldn’t get a hold of me. Do people who start these rumours even think about what it does to our children or that parents can end up having a heart attack?”
Sophie said that culprits need to stop and think about the families of people with chronic diseases.
“People are dying of depression, cancer and HIV and yet South Africans have time for jokes. Half of SA is suffering with some chronic disease which is such a challenge for families, so people need to grow up.”
