Israel Zulu opens up about his battle with gangrene



Popular actor Israel Matseke- Zulu has poured his heart out about his battle with gangrene,  which resulted in the amputation of his left leg.


The star has been on a low for quite some time now due to his illness as he lost his right leg.
He said that he lived in hell for seven months.

“I would sleep on a couch for seven months every night because when I tried to sleep in bed, the pain would be unbearable”

Israel said that he eventually went to see a doctor and after proper medical examination, he was told that he had gangrene in his leg and that there was a terrible infection in it.

The actor continued to share that he was then advised to have his leg amputated because it would affect his kidney or the other leg.

“What surprised the doctors was that although this is caused by high blood and sugar diabetes, I don’t have either. They then suspected that it might be smoking. That is why those who believe in witchcraft would say I have been bewitched. But I go with what medical scientists said, and that is why I quit smoking”
