Prominent Masvingo poet, Abel Mauchi popularly known as ‘Shefu Mudhesve’ has dismissed as false reports that he died.
This comes after reports circulated on social media indicating that Mauchi has died.
Mauche said he has not been doing well but he is still alive.
“Yes I have not been well but I am still alive. Please ignore social media reports saying I am dead.
Tell friends and relatives that I am alive,” said Mauchi.
Mauchi said he started vomiting blood during the night of November 15 before going to Nemamwa clinic the following day where he was given a drip and some injections but his condition continued to deteriorate forcing him to visit doctors at Morgenster Mission Hospital.
“I felt like I wanted to vomit on Monday night and I was surprised that my vomit was covered in blood. I went to Nemamwa clinic the following day where I was placed on drip and had some injections administered.
