This comes just a few days after Mthombeni announced that he had tested positive for Covid-19.

“For about 18 months my medical doctor has managed to steer clear of the dreaded Covid-19 virus but a couple of days ago he (read we) tested positive,” shared Laurie.

She further explained that in spite of the challenges that come with contracting the virus, she and Mthombeni are both recovering well at home.

She added: “What a crazy, HECTIC experience but as you can understand I am well taken care of ❤️🥺.

“Today is a good day and with each day of this rollercoaster ride that passes, I feel more and more like myself.”

She also took the opportunity to thank their fans for their messages of support, while urging fans to continue to adhere to the safety protocols.

“We are on the mend and would like to thank all our friends and family for the prayers. We are slowly but surely healing day by day. Keep safe out there.”

In a recent series of tweets Mthombeni told his fans he started having headaches and backaches, but it was later discovered that was Covid-19 positive.

Mthombeni also shared that he got the Covid-19 vaccine just a few months ago, and his symptoms were not serious.
