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.

The drama, now going into it’s sixth season, began as a 3 day a week broadcast on SABC1, and since then, has built up to South Africa’s most popular drama, airing 5 evenings weekly.   In it’s 6 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, the beginning of every season brings on fresh faces on Uzalo –  viewers will be introduced to a number of new characters who’re set to deliver exciting twists to existing storylines.

Classy and dignified,  Khehla’s mother Nomcebo “Cebo”, played by Nombulele Mhlongo will also joining the cast to add her own brand of spice to the plot.  Rounding off the new faces is the perfect gentleman and savvy businessman,  Mpumelelo “Mpume”, who will be portrayed by Fezile Makhanya – he’s set to shake up Sbu’s world in an interesting way.

With each new season comes the inevitable bittersweet goodbye – The much loved Khehla Qhabanga’s son, played by Thobani Nzuza will bid the series farewell.
