On House of Zwide, Faith is a matriarchal head of a wealthy family in the fashion industry who has three kids. She also had deep and dark secrets that dated back to 20 years ago when she killed her husband’s first wife and covered it up. The secrets come back to bite her when her stepson starts remembering things in his dreams and reveals that Isaac was an accomplice who kidnapped his sister. This leads to Faith’s arrest, and her family’s fight for justice even extends to the unknown world where she sees dead people.

Today Winnie Ntshaba is celebrating her birthday and shocking fans by revealing that she is 47. Even though the actress takes on age-appropriate roles, her physical features make it hard to believe that she is older. The actress is baby-faced, and her face does not look a day older than forty despite fast approaching fifty.
Winnie has been in the industry for over twenty years, having debuted her acting career with a role in Yesterday, playing alongside Leleti Khumalo. The actress then had her first leading role in Shreds and Dreams, which was back in 2004, and since then, her career has been on the rise.
