Why was Ronald Mkhwanazi fired?
According to a source from Uzalo, Ronald Mkhwanazi, who plays Njinji’s lover Bab’Nsimbi, was astonished to learn that his contract had expired. “Producers believed that because he was unpopular, he was not having an impact on the number of views. They decided to discard his character. He was stunned by this, and his eyes showed pain.
Mkhwanazi is the third member of the Magwaza family to leave the show following Omuhle Gela, who took over as Nomaswazi Magwaza, and Siyabonga Radebe, who portrayed Viaka Magwaza. He joined the Isibaya actor Thembi Nyandeni, who portrays Njinji on the SAABC1 soap opera.

“I tried my luck at several auditions, but none were successful. I had no money left. You won’t have money if you aren’t working. I maintained my optimism since I anticipated a setback. This continued till Uzalo came to my aid.
