- Minnie Dlamini's brother, Khosini Dlamini, has been admitted to ICU in hospital
- A source close to the family said he has suffered an aneurysm and has been in ICU for a few days
- However Minnie's parents, Janulani and Queen Dlamini, have reserved all comment and requested privacy during this time
Minnie Dlamini Jones' family have asked for privacy as her younger brother, Khosini, is currently in an intensive care unit in hospital.
It is unknown as to what happened to him, and family have not been clear with what led him to be in hospital.
According to SowetanLive, Minnie’s parents, Jabulani and Queen Dlamini, earlier confirmed in a statement on Monday afternoon that Khosini, aged 29, was currently in ICU and dismissed several reports that he had died.
“The Dlamini family notes with concern the incorrect news that our son Khosini Dlamini has passed. We can confirm that Khosini has been admitted to hospital and is currently undergoing treatment in ICU at the moment.
“We would like to reserve all comment on the matter and request that we are allowed privacy during this time. We kindly urge public, media and bloggers to refrain from spreading fake news and causing apprehension.”
A source close to the family told SowetanLive that Khosini had been in ICU for a couple of days after suffering an aneurysm. But the family declined to comment on the reason he was admitted to hospital.
For those who didn’t know, an aneurysm refers to weakening of an artery wall that creates a bulge of the artery. The condition can lead to the rupture of the bulge at a later stage, causing severe internal bleeding.
Meanwhile, earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi gospel singer, Hlengiwe Mhlaba, had been discharged from hospital following her serious car crash on Saturday afternoon in Melmoth, northern Zululand.
It is believed that the singer lost control of her vehicle while travelling to a show in Mpumalanga. Thankfully Mhlaba did not suffer any serious injuries after she crashed her Mercedes-Benz GL 320 CDI.
She is now out of hospital and recovering at home. But will not take any calls.
