Fake news about the death of popular comic actor, Alfred Ntombela who is known to play the role of Shorty in Leon Schuster’s movies has been circulating on the internet for two days now.
The reports say Alfred died in a car accident and people have been sending condolence messages to his family on social media.
CEO of Deen TV and Talk Show host of the Faizal Sayed show, has however debunked the host, confirming that Alfred is well and alive.
