Israel Matseke Zulu expresses joy over amputation of leg that forced him out of 'Gomora'

In other entertainment news, Briefly News reported that veteran actor Israel Matseke-Zulu has expressed joy following his successful operation. The star, who was suffering from gangrene, had his leg amputated a while back at Rob Ferreira Hospital in Mpumalanga.

Israel was slaying his role in Gomora when the pain forced him to exit the telenovela. He couldn't take the pain anymore while on set and decided to leave the show.

He said a friend convinced him to do the operation because he had been to many doctors but they couldn't make the "electric shock on both his feet" go away. Even though Mzansi got to hear about his condition around August, 2021, Israel Matseke-Zulu said he had been battling the illness for about seven years.
