A go fund me campaign has been launched for those willing to raise money to cater for the medical expenses of comedian Gringo, born Lazarus Boora.
The campaign was started by Leonard Chibhamu, the director of Village Secrets, a local television drama where Gringo features as Gibbo.
In a post, Chibhamu said those willing to assist can contact Gringo’s wife, Netsai Meki on 0773414364, which is also her EcoCash number. The post read:
Appeal for assistance for Lazarus “Gringo” Boora. We thank you all Village Secrets fans for standing by us all the way.
Let me take this opportunity to inform you that Mukoma Lazarus Boora affectionately known as Gringo, or Gibbo in Village Secrets is unwell.
As you are aware we had hoped that by this time he could have fully recovered and been back on the screen. Unfortunately, it has been tough for him to recover.
Arising from the need and his sudden illness, we feel he deserves our assistance more than ever before to enable him to get the necessary medical attention.
We fully acknowledge the past support and on the same strength, it is our plea for such assistance. Presently, he is in Hatfield, Harare.
For further information and assistance contact his wife Mai Boora (Netsai Meki) 0773414364. That is also her EcoCash number for those who want to send money.
Gringo is suffering from intestine obstruction, sitting discomfort, backache, hearing and talking difficulties.
The comedian was hospitalised last weekend and was expected to undergo blood tests, a scan and routine check-ups.
