Comedian Trevor Noah denied reports that his cousin was murdered over the weekend.  Sunday Times reported on May 24 that Noah’s family was mourning the death of his 24-year-old cousin, Cebisile Happiness Khoza, was murdered. 

According to the newspaper that quoted Noah’s grandmother Nomalizo Noah, relatives attended Khoza’s funeral in a village near Wasbank in KwaZulu-Natal on May 23. Nomalizo allegedly told the newspaper that she received news of Khoza’s death in a phone call from a relative in Pietermaritzburg and that Noah knew Khoza but that the two “had not been close as they lived in different provinces”. 

The murdered teacher disappeared the day before her graduation ceremony on her way to a salon and her “badly burnt body was discovered on a sugar cane plantation near the town,” according to Sunday Times.  Noah, who is replacing Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, rubbished the murder reports on Twitter and referred to the reports as “crafty journalism”. 

He then cautioned his followers not to believe everything they read.
Noah is scheduled to perform at Montecasino from May 29 to June 28 during his Lost In Translation world tour.
