Fake News About Basetsana Kumalo, The Former Miss South Africa.

Basetsana Julia “Bassie” Kumalo is the wife to Romeo Kumalo. She is a beauty pageant titleholder, a businesswoman, philanthropist, and a South African television personality, who started her career in 1990 when she was crowned Miss Soweto and Miss Black SA at the age of 16. Bassie has been happily married to Romeo Kumalo for 20 years now.

Recently, there has been some fake news flying around on her name. She raised an alarm against a publication saying, she’s six months pregnant for Tanzania’s late president John Pombe Magufuli.

The publication used her photograph, which was placed next to that of the late president but depicted her name as “Sara Wanjiru” and her age to be 34 years.

She took to Instagram saying this is “fake news” and attacked the claims and wrote:

“My name is not Sara Wanjiru. I am not Kenyan. I am not 34 years old. I am not 6 months pregnant with the late President John Pombe Magufuli’s child. It’s not even a case of mistaken identity, this takes fake news to another level. It’s beyond preposterous! Bengithi nginazise Bazalwane ukuthi ngivelelwe! Jo ke mohlolo hlolo! May President Magufuli Rest in Peace!” she wrote

Why would anyone write fake news about someone they don’t even know? Strange things happen in this world that we live in?
