Minnie Dlamini-Jones’s younger brother Khosini is currently receiving critical care in the hospital and the family has sought for privacy.
According to a source close to the family, Khosani has been in ICU for a couple of days after suffering an aneurysm. The family declined to comment on the reason behind why he was admitted in hospital, but dismissed reports that he’s dead.
An aneurysm refers to a weakening of an artery wall that creates a bulge of the artery. The condition can lead to the rupture of the bulge at a later stage, causing dangerous internal bleeding.
Minnie’s parents Jabulani and Queen Dlamini confirmed on Monday afternoon in a statement issued to SowetanLIVE that Khosani,29, was currently in ICU.
“The Dlamini family notes with concern the incorrect news that our son Khosini Dlamini has passed,” the statement reads.
“We can confirm that Khosini has been admitted to hospital and is currently undergoing treatment in ICU at the moment.
“We would like to reserve all comment on the matter and request that we are allowed privacy during this time.
“We kindly urge the public, media and bloggers to refrain from spreading fake news and causing apprehension.”
