Uzalo begins countdown to MaNgcobo’s departure

Uzalo is preparing for the exit of fan-favourite and original cast member, Dawn Thandeka King, who plays the character of MaNgcobo.

Uzalo took to Twitter on Thursday, 15 April 2021, to share preview images of the preparations by the heist gang that is led by MaNgcobo, played by Dawn Thandeka King. The post also functioned as a countdown to the episode that is set to be the final one featuring MaNgcobo.

Earlier in the year, it was announced that King would be leaving her breakout character to pursue other acting roles. The news was further confirmed through her new and critically acclaimed role as part of the cast of Mzansi Magic’s new series, DiepCity.

It is unclear at the moment whether her departure from the SABC 1 telenovela will be permanent, as that will only be revealed through the exit storyline’s conclusion. Should the actress survive the heist, it would suggest that there is a possibility that she will return in the future. However, should she die amid the activity, she will likely not return in the future.

The episode is set to air on Friday, 16 April 2021, on SABC 1 at 20:30.
