The show has been shaking things up with new characters joining the show and others exiting lately. It was recently reported that former Uzalo actors including Khaya Dladla, TK Dlamini, Nay Maps, as well as Nokuthula Mabika, will be making their big return this year.
“I’m not sure when I’m going to appear on TV, but we have agreed to come back to Uzalo. I’m preparing to be on set soon,” Khaya told Daily Sun.
Uzalo’s storyline has been the talk of the town lately with many people refusing to watch the show’s “boring storyline.” Recently the SABC 1 announced a 3-year agreement with the famed Stained Glass production. It is the first time that such a long-term arrangement has been put in place and it represents a clear vote of confidence the channel places in Mzansi’s best-performing soapie by far.
