Naseeb Abdul Juma aka Diamond Platnumz has failed to deny or confirm reports doing rounds in Tanzania that one of his Managers identified as Sallam SK has tested positive for Coronavirus (CIVID-19).
In an interactive session with his fans on Instagram, a section demanded answers from the WCB President on whether the allegations were true or false.
"Unazungumziaje taarifa za mitandaoni kuwa Manager wako Sallam SK ana corona?" asked one fan.
Platnumz responded saying he was not in-charge of addressing rumours being peddled on social media about his management and if anything, his office could have addressed the situation through the right channels.
He added that he was in company of his Manager (Sallam SK) during his recent Europe tour that was cut short over the wide spread of Coronavirus.
"Hayo ni mambo ya ofisi kwenye Management unazungumza mambo ya ofisi hayo. Lakini mtandaoni kuna mambo mengi sana, lakini si unajua ofisi bana,hapa mimi nazungumza tu na mafans wangu. alafu kule wanasema pia mimi nilikuwa huko huko. so tuko vizuri mwenyezi mungu anasaidia," said Diamond.
Three cases of Coronavirus in Tanzania
This comes at a time Tanzania has three confirmed Coronavirus cases. On Wednesday, Tanzanian Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa told journalists that the two patients were foreign nationals from the US and Germany. One case was confirmed in Dar es Salaam and one in Zanzibar.
Tanzania confirmed its first case of the Coronavirus pandemic on Monday in the northern town of Arusha. The patient, a 46-year-old Tanzanian woman, had returned from Belgium on Sunday aboard a RwandAir plane.
