Thuthuka Mthembu discusses Nonka’s tendency to disregard Sbonelo’s questionable behaviour

Published on

With the biggest wedding to grace KwaMashu coming up, Uzalo’s bride-to-be, Nonka, played by Thuthuka Mthembu, discussed the unconventional road to the altar.

The upcoming episodes of SABC 1’s Uzalo, scheduled to air on Tuesday, 14 July and Wednesday, 15 July 2020, will see Sbonelo tying the knot to his long-time girlfriend, Nonka, and her competitor in love, Sphilile.

Thuthuka Mthembu shared insight into the upcoming storyline in conversation with JustNje on Tuesday, 30 June 2020, where she expanded on her character’s thought process. The actress explained that Nonka often looks past Sbonelo’s questionable behaviour, and is often blinded by love. She elaborated on the fact that the pair is considered one of Uzalo’s greatest love stories, which is why everybody is looking forward to their union.

Thuthuka stated, “If you know anything about Uzalo, there will always be drama. There are never any ‘happily ever after’s’ and that is the beauty of the story. This storyline was obviously very shocking because you do want that [love story] for them, and you would think this is finally their chance to be happy. But then… the opposite happens!”
