In a shocking turn of events, Ndoda Gumede, a pivotal character from the Mzansi Magic telenovela “Umkhokha: The Curse,” has reportedly bid farewell to the series.
The TVSA December teasers suggest that Difa and Mamzobe’s son may have taken his own life, casting a somber shadow over the unfolding narrative.
While speculation among viewers initially leaned towards the demise of Gabisile or Nobuntu, the teasers for the Thursday, 28 December episode confirm that the sisters are still alive. The teaser reads, “MaMzobe feels left out when Difa, Gabisile, and Nobuntu leave for the pilgrimage without her,” dispelling rumors of their deaths.
However, the fate of the unidentified brother becomes the focal point of the unfolding tragedy. Fans, gripped by the emotional turmoil of the storyline, felt that Gabisile might have attempted suicide, grappling with the weight of her mother’s undisclosed secrets. Additionally, anticipation arose regarding Nobuntu, with viewers speculating that she may have been the character who shot herself on Friday’s episode, particularly due to the real-life pregnancy of the actress portraying Nobuntu, Kwezi Ndlovu.
The “Umkhokha: The Curse” teasers further unveil the dramatic events that await viewers in the upcoming episodes. Difa, portrayed by a character deeply entangled in the family’s struggles, is set to lash Ndoda’s lifeless body, marking a heart-wrenching moment for the show’s audience.
