Family dismisses ex-Joburg mayors death claims.

The deceased former mayor of Johannesburg's family denies the death certificate.

The family of Mpho Moerane, who served as mayor of Joburg in the past, has spoken out to refute rumors that he has passed away.

The story that Moerane had been in a vehicle accident broke on Tuesday, and it was all over the news for the rest of the day.

Mike Maile, the family's spokesman, issued a statement in which he stated, "The Mpho Moerane family condemns in the harshest possible terms barbaric and false stories spreading regarding his death."

Moerane is still in the hospital, where he is stable and making progress in his recovery, and we want to make it clear that he is not dead.

"We urge to all those who are sharing the false news declaring his death to stop from such as their acts are damaging to the family, friends, and comrades of Moerane," the statement stated, "We ask to all those who are spreading the fake news announcing his death to desist from such as."

Maile went on to say that those responsible for spreading the fake news are heartless people who are hellbent on causing unimaginable pain to the family. Maile said that the family is concentrating all of its efforts on working together with medical professionals to nurse Moerane back to good health.

"It is against tradition to proclaim dead a person who is still living, and people must not dive this low in their efforts to push whatever agenda they are driving," said the speaker. "People must not fall this low in their attempts to advance whatever agenda they are driving."

According to what he had to say, "We urge to members of the media and all others to respect the privacy of the Moerane's family and afford them respect and decency."
