Soapie actor Israel Matseke Zulu, has finally come out to address his death rumors. For the past few weeks, news went rife that he died after suffering a short illness.
Mzansi fans were quick to believe the new owing to the fact that he indeed has some health issues which is the reason why he recently resigned from Gomora series.
Killing all the fake news, he said “he is very much alive and in high spirits”.
“I am thankful for the kind messages and prayers, but people should not worry about me too much. I am recovering well at home, and receiving the best medical attention,” he said.
He told the People's Paper that at the time of filming his last scenes for the show, he was using a wheelchair. But now, he was able to walk.
“I am no longer in a wheelchair. I use crutches to walk around, which is a sign that I'm getting better.”
Israel, who has been in the entertainment industry for decades, said he was in Mpumalanga with his family.
“They have been very supportive of my condition, which I believe has made my recovery smooth and fast. I am grateful to them,” he added.
