Johannesburg- Actress Omhule Gela has had to give up an acting role due to health reasons. 

Omuhle took to Instagram where she explained to fans that she has decided to follow doctor's orders, and give up the role which she had already started shooting for. 

The actress explained that even though it was a tough decision to make, she would rather get her strength back before she starts shooting for season three of Umlilo. 

Speaking to The Juice last month, Omuhle could not contain her excitement about her new role. She was set to play Thandeka on an upcoming Mzansi Magic series, The Mayor. (Find that story here)

But it was not to be. 

Omuhle wants fans to know that she has willingly handed over her role to someone else. "I decided not to compromise my health and take the doctors orders of staying in for as long as he requested," Omuhle explained.

Feel better, Omuhle!
