Speaking from personal experience, renowned kwaito star Tsekeleke, who is battling with diabetes, said he would rather die than have his right leg amputated.
Moreover, the singer has surrendered to God with faith, hoping for a miracle. Apparently, he believes that he might end up dead like his father if he amputates the leg.
“I would rather die than to have my leg amputated. I have faith and belief that God will answer my prayers. My father was also diabetic and he had a problem with his leg and they amputated it. But he later died of the disease, so I would rather die than have it amputated,” he said.
Notably, taking off the leg would mean an abrupt end to his music which spans over 20 years. To ensure this doesn’t happen, the literally big kwaito sensation has turned to Incredible Happenings Church leader Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng for divine intervention.
The information that Tsekeleke has turned to God was revealed by a congregant of Mboro’s church who saw the ailing musician, limping to the church last week.
The Fatty Boom Boom hitmaker confirmed that he has turned to God for healing after battling with diabetes for years.
“I have been to different places looking for help but didn’t get any. After watching people on television saying they were healed by him, I decided to come to him for help. He is my last hope,” he amid tears.
He was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 10 years ago.
“I have been living with this illness for 10 years and was managing it properly by taking medication. But in the past few weeks, things changed. I get tired easily and have chest pains. My right leg started paining and swelling up. Now a sore has developed just under my big toe and it’s growing bigger by the day,” he added.
The doctors suggested amputation if the leg doesn’t get better. However, the chubby singer is not having any of it.
Meanwhile, Mboro said he welcomed Tsekeleke when he came to his church for help. Subsequently, he has placed the kwaito star on a two-month rehabilitation programme called Eight Weeks of Incredible Journey with Mboro which is about to begin.
