Generations The Legacy star Manaka Ranaka is reportedly in a romantic entanglement with actor Ntuthuko Mdletshe, her former on-screen partner from the show “Thisa” in 2006. Allegedly, Ranaka came between Mdletshe and his wife, Bronwyn Dudu Zungu, raising speculations that their chemistry on-screen translated into a real-life affair.
The pair, who portrayed lovers Mandla Khumalo and Vinolia Ntuli, eventually fell in love and even have a 12-year-old daughter together, named Naledi. Ranaka, who has two daughters from different fathers, was recently criticized by some fans for reportedly breaking up Mdletshe’s marriage.
Rumors have also circulated suggesting that Mdletshe might have left Ranaka for Zungu, as they have younger daughters together. A controversial Instagram post from Ranaka, dating back to March 2018, hints at a possible ongoing relationship between her and Mdletshe while he was still with Zungu. Despite the love triangle drama, sources close to Mdletshe and Zungu’s relationship claimed that they were happily married before these reports surfaced. Mdletshe, known for his TV debut on SABC 1’s “Thisa,” has remained relatively low-profile since.
