Veteran actor Menzi Ngubane took to social media to share a picture on Throwback Thursday. Menzi used the opportunity to encourage his followers to cherish every moment of being alive.
This likely comes after the tragic passing of radio veteran Bob Mabena. Ngubane had previously expressed sadness over the loss of his friend.
The actor, who was ill recently, said that Mabena had always checked on him.
Ngubane was recently hospitalised due to kidney problems and his health scare caused him to trend on social media. Menzi Ngubane even delayed his start on due to his ongoing health issues.
The veteran actor's family requested that Ngubane be allowed to focus on his health and recover fully.
There was even a fake hashtag that said he had passed away. Briefly.co.za reported that Menzi Ngubane slammed the fake news reports that claimed he passed away.
The veteran actor took to Twitter to ask his fans to help him stop the "barbaric behaviour" of spreading fake news. A fake eNCA Twitter account, which has since been deleted, tweeted that the actor had died after he was admitted to hospital with a recurring kidney problem.
It's no wonder he used this day to remind his fanbase to cherish life as it can end any minute.
