Johannesburg - Menzi Ngubane's health scare is no secret, however, he recently opened up to Move! about how he made it through the kidney failure, despite being expected to work in between treatments. 

The former Generations' actor, who got a kidney transplant last year, told the magazine that employment disputes with the soapie came at a time when he was going through medical treatment for the condition. "There was a lot going on at the time. I was going through medical treatment for kidney failure and it really took a lot out of me.," he said. 

Adding, "I had to learn to dialyse myself and I wasn't feeling well at all, but I had to work through all of that."

Furthermore, he was quoted as saying he was expected to be back at work just three days after being discharged from hospital. His condition was written into the script as his character, on Generations,  suffered from kidney failure and was confined to a wheelchair. 

And, in case you're wondering if he'll be returning to the small screen, he told the mag that he can't wait to start working again.

We sure hope to see him soon!
