The 36-year-old is reportedly currently in ICU at the Shaare Zedek Medical Centre in Israel, Jerusalem. Andile was working on the production, Daniel The Musical and plays the role of King Nebuchadnezzar.
The show was suspended last week so they could focus on Andile’s health care while his wife Hlengiwe was making arrangements to get to her husband. The musical show has since continued while he recovers.
“In the early morning he deteriorated and suffered a cardiac arrest, but the medical personnel at Shaare Zedek Medical Centre managed to successfully resuscitate him. His present condition is critical,”
“It is comforting to know that Andile is receiving the best medical care in the world as he is fighting for his life and the medical professionals are trying to determine the cause of his condition. We further ask that people pray for his speedy and full recovery,”the statement reads.
"Andile's wife arrived a few days ago and she is with him all the time and we hope that her presence will help him in his recovery."
