The cause of the 36-year-old’s death is not yet known.
Luzuko was vocal about his battle with cancer in 2019. At the time, he said the doctors had given him only six months to live. However, the actor won the battle at the time, in what his sister called a miraculous recovery.
Luzuko was famous for his roles on Streets of Mangaung, Mfolozi Street, Isidingo, Ambitions, Keeping Score, Ring of Lies, Mfolozi Street and Zone 14, to name a few.
