Former president John Agyekum Kufuor has fiercely denied false reports suggesting that he died in a hospital at South Africa.
The fake news which was spun by one Metronews.com purports that the NPP firebrand died 45 minutes after an emergency spine surgery at a hosipital at Johannesburg.
The fake story further suggests that Kufuor has earlier bitterly complained of a severe spine pain.
Spokesperson to the former President, Frank Agyekum, is calling on the public to disbelieve the death rumors stating that the fake news is "being peddled by some faceless individuals."
Frank Agyekum reveals that Kufuor is strong and will be joining the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate at Akropong for the constituency campaign launch in the Eastern Region.
