Shona Ferguson fighting for his life after heart operation



Johannesburg – Filmmaker, producer and actor Shona Ferguson is fighting for his life after undergoing a heart operation at a private hospital in Joburg.

The 47-year-old Rockville actor and husband to fellow producer and actress Connie Ferguson was admitted more than a week ago to Milpark private hospital where he is currently in the intensive care unit (ICU).

Sources close to him tell Sunday World that when he first got ill they thought it was Covid- 19.

A close contact said Shona is currently on a ventilator in ICU and his condition had recently worsened.

According to the source, a group of specialists had performed a heart operation.

According to another person close to the Fergusons, Shona, who was admitted more than a week ago, is in a restricted area accessible only to doctors and only a few select nurses.

According to another source close to the situation, Shona was fine before he started complaining about chest pains and not being able to breathe properly.

According to the source, they took it lightly because Shona is a fit and healthy guy who leads a healthy lifestyle.

Little did they know that the situation would turn bad.

“He is a fighter and he will pull through this ordeal. Yes, at the moment he is in ICU, but he will be fine,” said the source, who refused to be named.

The source said Connie was by her man’s side while trying to run their business.

“She is strong and carries on with grace and class.”

According to another source on the set of one of their productions, they are under the impression that Shona has Covid and is currently under quarantine.

“All we knew was that he was sick with Covid. That is what we all thought he had,” said the source. Connie referred all inquiries to her production manager for The Queen Lauren Nell.

Nell did not return calls and messages.

Head of PR at M-Net Georgina Machiridza said she cannot comment because it is a personal matter.
