The Vitiligo has spread over the years

Legendary actress Leleti Khumalo has had Vitiligo ( a disease that destroys skin pigment cells, causing the loss of skin color in blotches), for a couple of years now. And over the years the condition has gotten worse.

Even though Vitiligo has changed her looks, Leleti says she is content with her life and doesn't make her life about the disease.

"It has taken over my looks, but I am content. I don't want my life to be about the condition. I have it- so what? I am still an actress, a mother and a wife," Leleti said in an interview with True Love magazine.

The Uzalo actress said she found out about the disease when she was 24 and that it came from her father's side of the family.

"When I was trying to have children, the doctor told me after my pregnancy the vitiligo would spread. I was fine with that," she added.
