How old is MaMlambo from Uzalo?

South Africa actress, Gugu Gumede, who portrays the God-fearing and love-sick MaMlambo on Uzalo, appears to be much older on screen than she is in real life.

Viewers of Uzalo have consistently questioned the real age of Gugu Gumede, due to the mature character she portrays. Born on 10 December 1992, Gugu is currently 27 years old, a surprising revelation to a number of fans. On the popular telenovela, Gugu assumes the role of MaMlambo, who was romantically linked to brothers, Nkunzi and Qhabanga. With both men being in their fifties, viewers often mistaken her for being in the same age group as the men and their other wives.
