He played, Nongoloza on Uzalo, in Isibaya he was known as Gadla Zungu, and now on Gomora he plays a police officer who goes by the name Mthethwa.
But what many do not know is he is also happily married to famed actress Dawn Thandeka King.
He’s been acting on stage and screen since 2006 and has become a highly regarded technician.
The 56-year-old Mnguni said:
I started at a community theatre, that’s where I was equipped with acting techniques which were brought in by being part of the theatre groups.
He’s enjoyed a few widely acclaimed roles in popular local shows.
He has immense love and fond memories of a particular role, however.
“I feel my favourite character I played was Gadla on Isibaya. I love everything about that role.”
Now you might think there is a slight sense of competition between Mnguni and the highly adept King, but he assured us that theirs is a union built on the principles of solitude and eternal support.
“There isn’t any competition between my wife and I, it’s just a household full of motivation and that we can do more. She’s very talented and supportive.”
He confidently adds he can’t recall if any character in particular has been hard for him to portray but is eager for you to enjoy his work. You can catch the skilled actor on Mzansi Magic’s popular soap opera Gomora.
