Following a successful season 4 which just wrapped, Uzalo will be saying goodbye to Nay Maps, Nokuthula Mabika and Glen Gabela in season 5 starting in February 2019.
Uzalo, which recently set a new record of SA’s most-watched show with 10.2 million viewership, announced that Mxolisi, Thobile and Pastor Mdletshe will be leaving the show.
Nay Maps played Mxolisi Mdletshe, a young man who grew up in his father’s shady dealings, violence, dodgy dealings and police run-ins.
Nokuthula played Thobile. Thobile works at a saloon where she does hair and nails. She’s bubbly and fun.
Glen Gabela joined the show as the new Pastor Mdletshe.
