Basetsana Kumalo enraged by fake news claiming she is pregnant

Basetsana Kumalo has lambasted a publication for using her image to report on a woman claiming to be six months pregnant with the late President John Pombe Magufuli’s child.

Basetsana Kumalo took to Instagram on Saturday, 20 March 2021, to report on fake news that has been spread about her, which she finds completely preposterous. The media personality shared a screenshot of an article that used an image of her when reporting on a woman claiming to be pregnant with the late Tanzanian President, John Pombe Magufuli’s child.

She stated, “My name is not Sara Wanjiru. I am not Kenyan. I am not 34 years old. I am not [six] months pregnant with the late President John Pambe Magufuli’s child. It’s not even a case of mistaken identity, this takes fake news to another level. It’s beyond preposterous.” Fans and friends of the former beauty queen and businesswoman were equally outraged by the false claims, with some stating that the article appears to be an attempt to tarnish her and the late president’s reputations.
