Uzalo Actress MaThabethe ‘Pamla Khazi’ Is A Professional Nurse And Pastor In Real Life
Actress Pamla Khazi plays the role of MaThabethe, a loan shark on SABC 1 soapie opera Uzalo. The MaThabethe role is a shrowd loan shark based in KwaMashu; she mercilessly pounces her clients during debt recovery. MaThabethe rule number #22 Pay thy debts, Watch thy back speaks more about her debt collection methods and exorbitant interest rates.
Debt doesn’t forget, MaThabethe borrowed MaDongwe a sum of money a few years ago which later ballooned to thousands due to interests accumulated. MaDongwe revealed that she borrowed the money to buy a wedding ring under the pretence that Mbatha would marry her.
After separation from Mbatha, Madongwe threw the ring at him in agony. MaThabethe reappeared to torment her debtor; with her bouncers, she ransacked Madongwe’s house, taking away anything valuable in her sight. She was in control of her game until she stabbed Nonkanyiso while wrestling for a tablet and got arrested for attempted murder.
Palma Khazi‘s real life is entirely different from the MaThabethe role; she is a devoted Christian and professional nurse in real life. Married to husband Ray Khazi, she is a mother of three, bubbly and cheerful colleague.
Uzalo fans furious about MaThabethe
When she stabbed Nonka, a fan favourite onscreen, Palma faced real-life backlash from fans who forgot that all were acting and threatened her life. She was at once scared for her family safety due to the onscreen ordeal.
