Professor Jakes Gerwel has not died but is in a critical condition in hospital following heart surgery, his family said in a statement.

“Following media reports that Professor Jakes Gerwel has passed away, the Gerwel family would like it to be known that while Professor Gerwel is in a critical condition following heart surgery in Cape Town, the reports are untrue,” the family said.

The statement was prompted by earlier reports on news sites and Twitter that Gerwel, the chairperson of Media 24online and chancellor of Rhodes University, had died.

His family added: “As and when necessary, further updates will be given.” - IOL
