The actor took to his social media on Wednesday to announce that after having undergone a test a few days before, his results had come back positive for the virus and he was taking the necessary steps to heal and to protect others around him.
“Dear friends, family and colleagues please note my results for Covid-19 have come back positive. I will be taking necessary steps in keeping well and protecting others. Please go and have a test should you not feel 100%,” Zola said.
As the number of infected people continues to rise, Zola joins the list of Mzansi celebs, including Brian Temba, TT Mbha and Rosie Motene, who also recently shared that they had tested positive for the virus.
