Last year it was reported that Sibonile Ngubane, famously known as Khathaza Khanyile, was allegedly fired from SABC 1's Uzalo. Reasons behind his 'axing' were not given.

When the news broke in December 2019, many Uzalo viewers were disappointed to learn that their favourite villain was exiting the show. Many hearts were shattered when he was supposedly killed by his on-screen wife MaNgcobo, played by Dawn Thandeka King.

After the 'serial killer's' funeral, it became confirmation that he has indeed left the popular telenovela.

The captivating actor left a bunch of fans elated when he posted pictures of himself in Uzalo studios on Instagram. The suggestive pictures showed Sibonile all suited up, almost as if he is in character mode with a wide smile on his face.

He captioned; " Nyweee Nyweee Nyweee nithi kwenzenjani @isolezwe #Khathaza #Reloaded Izinto zanamhlanje." The caption translates "Y'all said what happened?" and he also suggested that he has started shooting his scenes.

When he was contacted by Isolezwe to comment on the rumours of his dismissal, he said; "It is illegal for me to discuss the dealings of Uzalo. People should just watch the show and they will see what is going to unfold, I do not have any knowledge of what you are asking me,"

Uzalo's spokesperson, Marang Setshwaelo, confirmed that Ngubane was indeed leaving the show. Marang also said that his character's story-line was bound to come to an end at some point.

It seems as though in a positive turn of events, he is set to return on our small screens to further spice things up. Who knows, the ratings might just increase again!
