Fans of the popular telenovela, Gomora, have been bidding farewell to Langa, played by Siyabonga Xaba, following the confirmation of his exit.
On Tuesday, 22 June 2021, 1Magic’s Gomora aired the episode which confirmed the exit of beloved character, Langa, played by Siyabonga Xaba. Langa’s character was killed off by Gladys, played by Thembi Seete. This occurred when Gladys implemented her revenge plot by burning down Mam’ Sonto’s tavern, played by Connie Chiume. Langa, who was stuck inside, suffered severe burns and irreversible damage to his lungs.
Series producer, Lulu Hela, confirmed Langa’s exit from the show through a Twitter post, stating, “Siya Xaba. Easily one of the best actors I’ve ever worked with. A perfectionist. A writer. A director. He’s accomplished so much at such a young age! There’s no doubt that his star will continue to shine as brightly as his spirit does!”
Moreover, Xaba also confirmed his exit through his Instagram Stories on the day. It seems that Xaba is currently exploring his directorial passions, as he is reportedly the director of a production titled Mntanom’gquba. However, Xaba has not shared word on his exit yet, as his storyline has yet to reach its conclusion.
