Dawn Thandeka King’s character will not be showing on Uzalo’s coming episodes for the new season.
It is however not clear how she will be killed off from the storyline.
Earlier last month, the actress had been glaringly absent from most Uzalo episodes.
Rumour spread that she had quit the show only for her to make a comeback mid-December.
This time around, Zoom South Africa has confirmed the actress will not be getting back on Uzalo as she is now headed for Johannesburg.
It is also not clear if she and her fiance, Mlungisi Duncan who played Nongoloza on the same show will both be leaving.
Mangcobo had been one key player on Uzalo’s storyline. She has been with the show since its inception back in 2015.
Late last year there were reports that Uzalo had been put on notice by SABC1 and were told to come up with creative storylines or face being cancelled, following months of “boring” content and declining viewership.
As part of this uncertainty over the show’s life on SABC1 and disputes with the top management, Mangcobo quits Uzalo and will be heading to Jo’burg to start on a new project yet to be announced, sources claim.
