Foundation refutes report of Thabo Mbeki’s demise

The Thabo Mbeki Foundation has disapproved the reports which stated that former President Thabo Mbeki was dead.

Even his Wikipedia profile page was updated to reflect the hoax


In a statement on Wednesday, The Thabo Mbeki Foundation said: “We urge the public to rely on official channels for accurate information about President Mbeki’s well-being and activities.”

Recall that there was a similar death report during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021. Also, the Foundation came out to debunk it then.

Mbeki succeeded the country’s first black president, Nelson Mandela. He served as the President of South Africa from 1999 to 2008.

He is respected for his intellectual approach to governance, and his contributions to post-Apatheid South Africa.
