Sekuru Banda Pledges To Assist Gringo
A Harare-based traditionalist, Oman Kamwelo Banda, popularly known as Sekuru Banda, has promised to pay all medical expenses to be accrued during comedian Gringo’s treatment.
Gringo, born Lazarus Boora, was hospitalised last weekend and was expected to undergo blood tests, a scan and routine check-ups.
He is suffering from intestine obstruction, sitting discomfort, backache, hearing and talking difficulties.
Following the publication of a story about Gringo’s predicament by The Herald on Tuesday, Sekuru Banda visited the comedian at his Hatfield home where he pledged to cater for his medical expenses and also to build him a house in the near future. Said Sekuru Banda:
I was touched by the story and I drove to his place with my team. He is in a sorry state. I asked his wife what was urgently needed.
She spoke of medical bills and consultation fees, unfortunately, she had no knowledge of the full amount required.
I gave them money to go back to the doctor and have check-ups, then come back to me with the actual medical bills. I am going to take care of his medical bills.
I have also pledged to build a house for him. I also offered capital for a business project so that he sustains himself.
