South African president Cyril Ramaphosa has been hospitalised, Ramaphosa’s spokesperson Vincent Magwenya said.

This comes after reports surfaced on social media that Ramaphosa had taken ill and was admitted to the Military Hospital in Pretoria.

Ramaphosa on Sunday was not available for some of the activities at the ongoing African National Congress National Executive Committee meeting in Mbombela due to an unspecified emergency.

“A malicious rumour has been doing the rounds about the President’s health and that he has been hospitalised. I spoke to him this morning, the President is fine, he was never hospitalised, and there was no emergency. He attended a meeting and decided to spend the rest of the day at home ahead of a busy week,” Magwenya said.
