Is Siyanda leaving The Queen?

Siyanda from Mzansi Magic’s The Queen, played by Cindy Mahlangu, exited the storyline in June 2020, after being shot by Goodness Mabuza on her and Kagiso’s wedding day.

Cindy Mahlangu, who played the character of Siyanda on The Queen, joined the cast in 2019 as the girlfriend of international footballer, Thabiso. After a brief break from the show, her character returned, single and financially troubled, and fell in love with Kagiso. After getting involved in the family’s drug dealings, she started consuming the drugs she was meant to sell. Her addiction caused major issues for her and Kagiso, which ultimately resulted in him falling for his ex-girlfriend, Goodness Mabuza.

Surprisingly, Siyanda found out that she was pregnant, which was used as a ploy to win back Kagiso. With the stress of his affair affecting her mental health, Siyanda lost the baby, but continued with the lie to keep Kagiso from leaving her. On their wedding day, Goodness had reached her breaking point, and was tired of sharing Kagiso with Siyanda, leading to her shooting and killing Siyanda shortly after her walk down the aisle.

The character’s death was somewhat overshadowed by the return of Shaka Khoza, who made a comeback on the same episode.
