The door that lets some people inside is the same door that lets others out. Veteran TV and film actor Jet Novuka joins Uzalo.
While Jet is preparing to make his first appearance on Uzalo, Nomcebo Gumede who played Mumsy is on her way back to the show.
Mumsy was Mastermind’s love interest and played a stellar role in turning the gangster’s life upside down. She is back and let’s wait and see the kind of drama she has up her sleeves.
Jet Novuka joins Uzalo
Uzalo, which has become a popular hit on SABC1, is constantly adding new faces on its line-up to spice the storyline and keep viewers glued.
Haybowena reported early this month that DJ Chynaman was joining Uzalo, taking the character of the flamboyant businessman Zane.
It will be a while before Jet appears on-screen on Uzalo as he will be seen on the show towards the end of the year when the new season starts.
Jet will play the role of Captain Yamkela Mpambani.
Brenda Mukwevho, the creative director of the drama expressed her excitement about the new talent joining the show.
“We’re excited about sir Jet Novuka joining the Uzalo family and Nomcebo Gumede returning to the family. We have some great plot twists coming up and cannot wait for audiences to see what the cast will deliver,” said Brenda.
On the opposite end sits Nombulelo Mhlongo (Mamfundisi), Thulani Shange (Thulane Khanyile) and Sizwe Khumbuza (Siyabonga Khanyile) who are on their way out.
The news about the Khanyile brothers leaving the drama started circulating a month ago. The pair will be remembered by the viewers for taking down Nkunzi, the biggest gangster of KwaMashu.
Brenda thanked the members exiting the show for their effort and work as part of the Uzalo family.
“We also thank Nombulelo, Thulani and Sizwe for the great work they’ve presented as part of the Uzalo family. They gave their all and we are grateful to have been able to work with them.”
