Uzalo Qhabanga To Be Replaced By Pastor Mdletshe
A few weeks ago Uzalo confirmed speculation that two of its leading actors, Baby Cele and Siyabonga Shibe, are leaving the show. Now the show has confirmed the return of Pastor Mdletshe played by Glen Gabela on their Twitter account with images of Pastor Mdletshe shaking hands with Mr. Mbatha behind the scenes.
Baby and Siyabonga, who play Gabisile and Qhabanga, are set to leave the show at the end of its sixth season. Rumors about the actors’ departure had been circulating since June with Siyabonga shutting down speculations of his departure on his Instagram account. According to sources from the show, a number of actors were being fired after getting into an argument with the show’s creators.

Some of the fans of the show were not happy with Pastor Mdletshe’s return as they favored Qhabanga over him. They apparently find him a bit hard and boring, while some congratulated the actor for making a comeback.
Pastor Mdletshe will apparently début on season six when Qhabanga leaves Uzalo. Uzalo is still the leading soapie in South Africa with 8million views.
