Zimstar News

Unwell legendary musician Zex Manatsa has moved to dismiss social media claims by online news publication, ZimEye he was begging for donations to clear a US$3 000 hospital bill that has accrued during his current hospitalisation at Parirenyatwa Hospital.

The publication also claimed the liberation war veteran has been abandoned by Zanu PF during his hour of need.

But the Chipo Chiroorwa hitmaker who is battling cancer took pain to issue a social media rebuttal of the claims, telling all and sundry his immediate family members were still capable of taking care of his needs.

Posted the veteran musician, “My family, friends and fans, as you know I am battling cancer. The last couple of weeks have been tough on my body. I am currently admitted in hospital in order to be closely monitored and receiving treatment from specialists. Mentally, I am strong and optimistic. Mainly because my family is here with me everyday, all the way on this journey. My family has been and continue to take care of all my medical bills. We have not approached Zanu PF nor anyone for financial assistance yet, and neither have we been denied assistance as reported on social media by ZimEye. I am not stranded, my family is making sure that I am well catered for and comfortable. I and my family shall continue to keep you updated on how I’m doing OFFICIALLY on this page. Once again, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, for your prayers, love and support as always. Sincerely: Zex Manatsa.”

Manatsa was helped in his denial by his son, Tendai and daughter-in-law Selmor, who pleaded with the publication to take down the post.

Evidently outraged by the tweet and its implications over their capabilities to take care of their loved ones, the celebrity Manatsa couple quickly claimed they were taking care of the bearded music veteran.

“Please take this down. Our father is not stranded, we are paying for everything ourselves,” Selmor tweeted.

Tendai also tweeted under his wife’s thread, “Please take this down immediately!! We are taking care of our father. He is not stranded.”
