Uzalo’s current popular duo, Khanyile brothers, Thulane and Godfather played by Thulani Shange and Sizwe Khumbuza have been shown the door.
Uzalo publicist, Nomfundo Zondi, confirmed that the pair will no longer be part of SABC1’s popular show.
However, they are not the only actors leaving as they will be joined by Nomcebo, played by Nombulelo Mhlongo.
Nomfundo says this is because the show is entering a new season and that is why some characters will be dropped as they have served their purpose.
“They will soon bid the series farewell. Stay tuned, these characters will exit the Uzalo world in an epic, high-drama filled adieu,” she said.
However, word on the street is that Thulani and Sizwe were fired after they complained about their low salaries.
Thulani told Daily Sun that he’s left the show and there’s no bad blood as his contract came to an abrupt end due to lockdown affecting production.
The new season will bring veteran actor Jet Novuka who will be playing the shrewd, no-nonsense Captain Yamkela Mpambani.
“True to form, every season brings on fresh faces to deliver exciting twists as well as reintroduces familiar faces to shake things up. Sir Jet Novuka will be entering the Uzalo world to shake things up, making the lives of all criminals a nightmare. The feisty temptress Mumsy played by Nomcebo Gumede is back on screens by popular demand,” Nomfundo says.
