The rumour that the Uzalo two love birds, Baby Cele And Siyabonga Shibe were leaving the popular soapie has been there for quite some time.
However, a lot of Uzalo viewers didn’t want to believe it and now it sounds like their worst nightmare has come to life. When SurgeZirc SA previously reported that the two stars are leaving the show they came out to deny it but their producers have since confirmed the sad news.
In a recent statement, the SABC 1 show stated, “Baby Cele and Siyabonga Shibe will indeed be leaving the show by the end of season six of Uzalo. 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 South Africa’s best. Please stay tuned and see as the story unfolds.”
It’s unclear if Siyabonga has found himself a new job but as for Baby Cele, things are looking bright for her as she has bagged herself an international role in an upcoming film called Red Cargo.
