The Ndlovu family has dismissed as false rumours which were circulating on social media claiming that Madinda Ndlovu had passed away, with his brother Peter confirming he is alive and well.

Panic gripped social media users with groups comprising football followers seeking to substantiate whether news of the passing of Madinda was true.

Madinda’s younger brother and Warriors Legend, Peter confirmed to ZBC News from South Africa, that Madinda is in fact well and alive, contrary to malicious reports about the death of his brother.

Madinda Ndlovu was early this month hospitalised after collapsing while conducting training at Gaborone United in Botswana.

I have just spoken to Gaborone United chairman Boitumelo Nsunge who said legendary Madinda Ndlovu is alive and getting much better.
