Veteran Actress Mary Makgatho known for her roles on Generations, Yizo-Yizo and Rhythm City has passed on after reportedly spending some time in the hospital following complication from a fall in July.
The passing on of the Veteran Actress comes just a few days after the saddening news of the passing on another actor, Dumi Masilela, who died from a hijacking incident.
The news of Mary Makgatho’s passing on comes as dreadful to the entertainment industry and South Africa as whole.
Friends, fans and the Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa took to social media to express their sadness and send their condolences to the Makgatho’s family.
