Unwell Comedian 'Gringo' Appeals For Help
Legendary comedian Lazarus Boora, also known as Gringo, is seriously ill again and has failed to raise money for medication.

He is in pain compared to before. On Saturday we took him to a hospital in Waterfalls because his condition was worsening. They said he was dehydrated.

Meki appealed to well-wishers for donations so that he can be attended to by the surgeon.
