Israel Matseke-Zulu, a  veteran South African actor, is currently stuck in a difficult time because he cannot find suitable acting roles. This is after he had his foot amputated.

A year ago, Israel abruptly left Mzansi Magic's hit telenovela Gomora, citing ill health as the reason.

Immediately after dealing with what was causing the illness and finding a way to get back on his feet as an actor, it appears that no production house wants to hire him.
