Mzansi Magic's most notable drama series is mourning the loss of one of its youngest actors.
Such sad news, whilst most of us enjoy the numerous episodes of iSthunzi, its cast members remembered the short-lived life of one of its youngest cast members.
The young actor who goes by the name of Thando Mhlontlo played the role of Makgotso M's younger brother on the show.
Makgotso M announced the passing of the young man a few days ago on her Twitter page.
Thando had not been appearing on the second season of the show since it began airing. Thando was only 11 years old.
Co-star, Sdumo Mtshali also sent out his heartfelt condolences to the family as well.

Thando was shining. As a young man, he radiated the highest values of human-hood. Despite his youth, he stood equally in talent, empathy, understanding and professionalism to his fellow Isthunzi actors. Even in his quietness, he radiated an electric presence. Everyone who encountered him knew that they were in the presence of a multi-talented and very pure star who would blaze a beautiful trail into the future.
Thando’s passing is a tragedy… Our hearts pour out to the Mhlontlo family and all Thando’s friends. Aside from being brilliant, he was a true friend and a beloved son and brother. I’m not sure we'll ever be at peace with Thando's passing but his short life was deeply inspiring and we are grateful to have been graced with his shine. RIP Thando we all love you. You live now in our hearts forever. - Isthunzi Producers.
May his soul rest in peace.
