It’s been six years since multiple award-winning TV drama Uzalo hit South African TV screens, building up a loyal following by delivering riveting storylines, loveable characters and heart-stopping cliffhangers that kept audiences coming back for more.
In it’s six years of existence, Uzalo has turned a host of unknown talent into household names and showcased the province to devoted audiences nationwide.
The drama has also been home to some of South Africa’s most established acting talent, who’ve played a major part in creating the magic that viewers have enjoyed.
True to form, every season brings on fresh faces to deliver exciting twists as well as reintroduces familiar faces to shake things up.
The feisty temptress Mumsy played by Nomcebo Gumede is back on screens by popular demand.
The shrewd no nonsense Captain Yamkela Mpambani played by Sir Jet Novuka will be entering the Uzalo world to shake things up, making the lives of all criminals a nightmare.
With each new season comes the inevitable bittersweet goodbye – The much loved, classy and dignified, Nomcebo, played by Nombulelo Mhlongo, the rambunctious Khanyile brothers, Thulane and Godfather played by Thulani Shange and Sizwe Khumbuza will soon bid the series farewell.
