Basetsana Kumalo has slammed a fake news report claiming that she is pregnant with late Tanzanian President John Magufuli's child.
The media personality, married to Romeo Kumalo, took to Instagram a few days ago to react to the report that was published on 18 March.
The report by mpasho-news.com published a pic of Bassie alongside Magufuli. It said that Basetsana is a Kenyan woman named Sara Wanjiru, 34, who claimed to be six months pregnant with Magufuli's child. Bassie shared the screenshot of the report on her timeline and said her name is not Sara Wanjiru.
"I am not 34 years old. I am not six months pregnant with the late President John Pombe Magufuli’s child."
The media mogul expressed that the report took fake news news to another level adding that it was beyond preposterous.
"It’s not even a case of mistaken identity."
Social media users took to Basetsana's comment section to share their views on the report. Check out some of their comments below:
