Nomzamo Mbatha Killed Off On Isibaya
Actress Nomzamo Mbatha has left her fans heartbroken and in disbelieve after it was confirmed that she will be bidding farewell to popular Mzansi Magic telenovela Isibaya.
The star played the lead role as Thandeka Zungu for almost seven years but because of her busy schedule, producers and writers decided to kill off her character. Mbatha was officially released from the show in December and the funeral of her character Thandeka will be aired on March 9.
The details of how Thandeka is going to die are still sketchy, but two sources close to Isibaya’s production company said that Thandeka and her husband Sbu – played by Sdumo Mtshali – will be attacked by armed criminals.
“Sbu is going to survive [the shooting], but sadly Thandeka is going to die,” said a source.
Nomzamo Mbatha recently relocated to the United States to pursue other avenues and work opportunities. She has been involved in a lot of projects in the states and this has made it difficult to commit to her shooting schedule at Isibaya despite producers trying their best to accommodate her schedule and work around her availability. The logistics became a nightmare and producers were left with no choice but to write her off.
In August last year, she landed a role in Eddie Murphy’s sequel Coming To America 2 in which she co-stars alongside Arsenio Hall, Tracy Morgan and Garcelle Beauvais.
However, another source said that initially, Mbatha had asked to be released from the show in 2018, but the writers and producers wouldn’t let her go because she was the viewers favourite on Isibaya.
“For the longest time, it became tricky and difficult to write her off because she is the show’s darling. They did their best to keep her in the story line. They even made arrangements to work around her schedule after she relocated to Los Angeles in the US,” the source said.
Isibaya publicist, Karabo Moroga, however, could not confirm Nomzamo’s resignation as she said the following: “… I don’t have any answers. I’m also in the dark…”
