‘UZALO’: PASTOR GWALA AND MONDLI’S CURRENT STORYLINE
Uzalo’s Mondli and Nosipho’s husband Pastor Gwala don’t get along at the moment as they have different beliefs on how to raise baby Muzi.
Mondli believes in traditional medicine and sangomas, while Pastor Gwala believes in prayer and modern medicine.
The Gwalas marriage hasn’t been the same since Mondli decided he wants to be a part of Nosipho’s pregnancy and his son’s life.
The Uzalo teasers reveal that the trio will bury their son on Thursday, 30 March, and Nosipho will stay in robot mode after the funeral.
Uzalo confirmed in November 2022 that actors Biyela and Maphumulo, who play husband and wife, have exited the SABC1 soapie.
Nomfundo Zondi told Daily Sun that the show will communicate with viewers and the public about changes when the time is right.
Sources from the SABC1 soapie Uzalo informed SSiTV:
“The situation is tense as some actors don’t know whether their contracts will be renewed or not, but Nosipho and Pastor Gwala are leaving. They were told their contracts would not be renewed.”
Another source from the production revealed that actors from the SABC1 soapie were living in fear.
“Nompilo is talented. She’s been with Uzalo since season one and delivered the best. When colleagues heard she was leaving, everyone was shocked. Menzi is experienced and talented. His contract not being renewed was scary for others.”
