The Office of the Deputy President, David Mabuza has assured concerned South Africans that his health is nothing to worry about.
"We would like to assure South Africans that the deputy president is at home and well. Anything contrary to this is a malicious and unfortunate rumour."
There had been rumours that Mabuza was not doing well, the reason for his absence in public.
Twitter was quick to react to the statement:

Concerned citizens that have a direct line? The same concerned citizens that hope he's not spilling the beans?
Can't be the South Africans on the ground, who know what he's all about, as he's just another corrupt member of the anc.
