Legendary musician Zex Manatsa has dismissed a report by a local publication that he has approached ZANU PF for financial assistance to cater for his hospital bills.
Manatsa announced in August this year that he had been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, cancer that forms in a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell.
In a Facebook post on Thursday, Manatsa said his family was taking care of all his medical bills and had not asked for help from anyone. He wrote:
My family, friends and fans, as you know I am battling cancer. The last couple of weeks has been tough on my body.
I am currently admitted to the hospital in order to be closely monitored and receive treatment from specialists.
Mentally, I am strong and optimistic. Mainly because my family is here with me every day, all the way on this journey. My family has been and continue to take care of all my medical bills.
We have not approached ZANU PF nor anyone for financial assistance yet and, neither have we been denied assistance as reported on social media by ZimEye.
I am not stranded, my family is making sure that I am well catered for and comfortable.
Me and my family shall continue to keep you updated on how I’m doing OFFICIALLY on this page.
Once again, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, for your prayers, love and support as always.
Sincerely: Zex Manatsa #LivingLegend #TeamManatsaFamily #OneHeart
