Popular actor Lazarus Boora of “Gringo” fame has been discharged from hospital and is now recovering at home.
The comedian went under the knife last week after suffering from appendix rapture.
The actor, who had to ask for help to pay medical bills, thanked those who came to his rescue.
Socialites Pokello Nare and Jackie Ngarande were the major contributors to the hospital bill.
Gringo blamed piracy for his financial misfortunes.
“If it wasn’t for piracy, with ‘Gringo Troublemaker’ I would have had made enough to cover my own medical bills,” he said.
Gringo is not the only actor who has struggled with medical expenses with the late Lawrence Simbarashe, popularly known as “Bhonzo” from his role in local comedy “Timmy naBhonzo” having suffered the same predicament.State media
