Here comes sad news for Uzalo viewers who’re fond of Mamfundisi Gabisile Mdletshe as she has come to the end of the road. Baby Cele is no novice on our screens many grew up seeing her and some actually got to know her for the first time through Uzalo but one thing remains certain, she never fails to deliver.
The rumours of the actress leaving the show started circulating last year and it was also discovered that she wasn’t the only leading artist who was bidding the series goodbye. Siyabonga Shibe who stars the role of Qabanga is also exiting.
It’s still unclear how the show plans to end Siyabonga’s role but the curtains have closed for Baby as the latest trailers show that Gabisile will die. This will follow right after she has confessed to her sin of killing her ex-love and stepson Kehla.
Speaking through a statement the producers of the show said: “Baby Cele and Siyabonga Shibe will be leaving Uzalo by the end of season six. The story has taken this direction and will give us a riveting, high-stakes ending for both characters.
“The decision was made in consultation with the two actors. Both have given a tremendous amount to their roles on Uzalo and we are forever grateful for that. We will be introducing a host of new characters played by SA’s best. Please stay tuned and see as the story unfolds.”
But not all is lost as Baby has announced she’ll be joining a new series that’s set to air on eTV.
