SABC1 telenovela Uzalo's behind the scenes drama arguably makes for better TV than most of the primetime show's episodes.

And this round of Mzansi's favourite production saga involves it losing key cast members.

Insiders said Thulane Shange, who plays the character of Thulani had become a distant memory on Uzalo's set, with his onscreen ghost set living out the last of its appearances in the TV show. He stopped shooting two weeks ago, sources told Sunday Sun.

When called for comment, Thulane confirmed the breaking news. "I'm currently unemployed and looking for work. Be that as it may, I didn't leave on bad terms. It's just that my storyline came to an end. My last shoot was indeed two weeks ago," he said.

He said that the contract was originally set to expire in October, but the lockdown period to curb the spread of the coronavirus affected the telenovela's plot.

He added: "Life is hard, but I keep myself busy by helping musicians and gqom star, Mampintsha with his music videos."

Insiders said the producers had also pulled the plug on Sizwe Khumbuza (Godfather).

Actors Dawn Thandeka King (MaNgcobo) and Siyabonga Shile (Qhabanga) were said to be living on a borrowed time, as Uzalo's producers would allegedly soon kiss them goodbye. "These two are no longer in the producers good books because they made a mistake of asking for a salary increase," informant said.

Informant added: "MaNgcobo has a dark cloud hanging over her head. Her attitude is not doing her any favours. She makes the writers' and directors' jobs difficult because sometimes she demands a change in the storyline."

Who ever directs or produces Uzalo please don't act emotionally and irrationally thereby denying your audience entertainment. We need Mangcobo please mayb you can sacrifice Qhabanga not the leading character like lady boss.
