MUVHANGO actor Senzo Radebe should thank his lucky stars for being alive!
This after he survived an accident.
Last week Senzo was admitted to a Johannesburg public hospital after he was hit by a taxi at the Noord taxi rank, in the Joburg CBC.
A source said Senzo was hit by a taxi while waiting to catch one to work. Senzo, who is from Alexandra, in Joburg, became a pedestrian casualty when two taxis collided.
“He was hit and injured, then rushed to hospital,” the source said.
Senzo’s sister Amanda (27) told Sunday Sunthey were shocked to get a call fromMuvhango publicist, Amanda Ngudle, who told them Senzo was in hospital.
“What shocked me was that he didn’t have transport. I thought since he was staying with other actors they had transport arranged for them. My mum nearly had a heart attack, but she’s doing well. His arm was badly injured and was operated on,” she said.
Amanda said Senzo’s colleagues were shocked to hear he was admitted to a public hospital.
“That means they’re paid peanuts. We’re grateful to the people who recognised him when he was lying there injured. They called the SABC to tell them of Senzo’s accident.
“It didn’t go down well with other actors that their colleague was admitted to a public hospital and that he had to catch a taxi to work.
“They were calling for transport to be provided,” the actor’s sister said.
Senzo’s mum, Zamahlubi said:he lost his cellphone in the accident. “Thank God he’s still alive.”
Ngudle was sent some questions via SMS and she replied saying: “Are we talking about the same person you reported to have been on strike? You must be joking.”
When asked for comment, Senzo said: “I’m doing well. Tomorrow I’ll be discharged. And thanks to the sister who saw the accident and alerted my family.”
