Shona Ferguson has passed away

Johannesburg –  Connie Ferguson’s husband, Shona, has passed away.

Shona passed away at the Milpark private hospital in Johannesburg on Friday afternoon.

The media mogul was admitted there last week after suffering from chest pains.

It was later discovered that he had heart problems and he underwent a major heart operation.

A source to the family confirmed the matter.

“I can confirm that he just died. Connie is busy with the funeral arrangements,” said the source.

Attempts to solicit comments from Connie drew a blank as her phone, understandably,  just rang unanswered.

The Ferguson family has released a statement following the death of entertainment icon, Shona Ferguson.

The statement read, “It is with great sadness that we confirm the passing of Mr. Shona Ferguson. He passed away at noon today (Friday 30 July 2021). Mr. Ferguson’s untimely passing was due to Covid-19 related complications, and not a heart operation as reported in the media.”

“We ask that you give the family time to process this painful loss, and respect their space during this time. More details will be shared in due course,” the statement concluded.

Earlier this week, Sunday World reported that Shona was on a ventilator in ICU and his condition had recently worsened.

According to the source, a group of specialists had performed a heart operation.

According to another person close to the Fergusons, Shona, who was admitted more than a week ago, is in a restricted area accessible only to doctors and only a few select nurses.

According to another source close to the situation, Shona was fine before he started complaining about chest pains and not being able to breathe properly.
