In an interview with Drum he said, “I’ve done quite a few acting gigs and it’s been a challenge to keep jumping from one job to another. I think I should be granted the privilege of getting a job and staying there for a long time – not just for me, but for the storyline and the viewers. It pains me that I have to come to this decision but I don’t act for fame, I went to school for it,” he told the publication. 

Speaking of Uzalo actors, it was reported that actor Siyabonga Radebe has dumped the series. He played Vikizitha Magwaza and was the bad guy. 

Phil Mphela made this announcement: "Siyabonga “Siya B” Radebe quits Uzalo. Barely six months with the SABC1 soapie, Siya is leaving the show and word is … he quit. He joined the current season as a charming but lethal criminal Vikizitha Magwaza." 

Vikizitha joined the show with his new family to make the Magwaza family which is played by Thembi Nyandeni, and Omuhle Gela.

Stained Glass TV executive producer Pepsi Pokane said in statement: “We are excited for audiences to experience a reimagined Uzalo. The production team promises a season of high-stakes drama, riveting storylines, creativity, and skillful production. The production has several new faces joining the show, and it is a great pleasure to work with this impressive talent. We are confident that our viewers are eager to continue experiencing authentic stories that represent their everyday realities in a way that resonates with them.”
