South African actress Mary Makgatho, who played the role of Puleng on the original Generations, has died. Mary Makgatho died in a Pretoria hospital, after she slipped into a coma when she injured her head during a fall last month.
Mary’s sister, Rose confirmed that the actress had been rushed to a Johannesburg hospital on July 6 after she fell at her home. “She was transferred to a Pretoria hospital four days later where she was placed in high care. We knew that she was in hospital and in high care but we didn’t expect this. We are all devastated and in shock,” she said
