Uzalo’s Police Captain Exits The Show
Seasoned actor Jet Novuka, is set to leave Uzalo.
Jet Novuka, who plays the smug police captain, Yamkela Mpambani, will not be on our screens for long, as the Uzalo writers decided to wrap up his story.
This was revealed by entertainment commentator Phil Mphela via his #EntertainmentAlert, that the writers had decided to write the character of Captain Yamkela Mpambani out of the storylines.
This probably means in the worst case, a death may be on the horizon for the captain.
The Uzalo showrunners have been talking about shaking things up, which means letting go off some characters.
Jet Novuka joined the cast of Uzalo in July 2020.
The seasoned actor is well known for his numerous roles throughout the years on big television shows such as Isidingo, Yizo Yizo, Igazi, MTV Shuga, Jacob’s Cross, and many more.
Jet Novuka revealed to the Drum that he has played almost every character there is to play
“There is no character that I have not played; I have even played a role of a psychopath. I play the roles that I get so well because as an actor I strongly believe that acting is about staying honest and true to the moment. I always seek to play roles that I have not come across in my life,’ he said.
Meanwhile, Uzalo fans are not impressed by his exit from the show and have accused the writers of failing to use his character well.
Here are some of the comments
“That character was too weak for Jet, wishing him all the best for the future”
“Tat’Jet is way too big for Uzalo, that role and script weren’t doing him any justice”
“Uzalo writers failed this amazing actor his story line was weak but his acting was amazing as usual”
We have no doubt we will be seeing him soon in another production.
