The National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) has hailed doctors and other well wishers who have come to the aid of popular actor and comedian Lazarus “Gringo” Boora who has since been hospitalized at a private health care facility in Ruwa.
Speaking during a visit to the comedian’s home in Hatfield yesterday, NACZ Deputy Director Mr Josiah Kusena thanked the private doctors who have extended a helping hand to the actor whose health had deteriorated as he did not have access to medical care which complicated his medical condition.
“As NACZ we are happy that these doctors and other well-wishers have chipped in to assist and we wish Gringo a speedy recovery so he can continue to entertain Zimbabweans with his brand of humour”, said Mr Kusena.
The veteran actor is fighting intestine obstruction, back and hearing problems after having undergone an appendix surgery in October last year.
In January the government through the NACZ presented groceries and an assortment of home consumables to the actor/comedian who was convalescing at his rural homestead in Rukweza after undergoing surgery.
