Uzalo is set to air an hour-long TV special of the funeral service of popular characters Manzuza played by Leleti Khumalo and Smangele played by Sihle Ndaba on SABC1 on February 16, 2018.
The two characters were both recently killed and will soon get their on-screen send-off.
Drum Magazine got a sneak peak at the funeral pamphlet and the programme includes a collection of hymns for MaNzuza – No Tears in Heaven, Lord of All Being, and Day is Past and Gone. “The day is past and gone, the evening shades appear. O, may we all remember well – the night of death draws near.” The last hymn is read as both Smangele and MaNzuza are laid to rest.
According to Zalebs, the funeral was attended by the likes of Zodwa Wabantu alongside Ukhozi FM radio host Selby “Selbeyonce” Mkhize and Destruction Boyz member Zipho Mthembu & more.
