Gugu Gumede gets gifts, but not from her husband

Gugu Gumede has confirmed her return to work, as she received PR package gifts which she used to quell suggestions that she is in a romantic relationship.

Gugu Gumede is best known for her character, MaMlambo, on the most-watched program in the country, Uzalo. Recently, the star took to Instagram to reveal that she is slowly getting back into work mode following the tragic passing of her mother and political leader, Zanele Magwaza-Msibi, in September 2021.

After bidding her final farewell to her mother, Gumede took to Instagram to write, “There is never a point in life where one wishes to walk the path that I am on; but such is life – we are born, we fulfil our assignment to the best of our abilities, and we depart. My mother was a giant. A king. She came from nothing and had the task of breaking many generational curses; blessing many family members in between.”

Adding, “She was a dedicated public servant; a pioneer and activist who changed many people’s lives. To my brother and I, though, she was Mommy. My best friend. My confidant. My greatest fan. My prayer warrior. Our queen that we so dearly loved and revered. Words will never be enough to express our appreciation for the love and affection that she single-handedly raised us with.”

Her latest post showcased her unboxing a gift with a bouquet of red roses in the background. Gumede’s relationship status has been confirmed as single, a fact she also highlighted in her caption by clarifying that the gifts were PR packages sent to her for review.
