Mlungisi, played by Uzalo actor Nkanyiso Mchunu, has exited the Mzansi Magic telenovela Umkhokha: The Curse. According to the TVSA Umkhokha: The Curse September teasers, Mlungisi will commit suicide and his brothers will have to lash his body to remove the curse. The Thursday, 21 September teaser reads: “The curse finds its way to Mkhululi and nothing, but darkness prevails.”

The teasers also confirm that Mkhulu’s half-brothers Khulekani or Siphamandla must lash his body to remove the curse in the family. Friday, 22 September: “Mlungisi’s death shakes the family, Khulekani and Siphamandla must decide who’s going to stop Umkhokha and lash Mlungisi’s body.”

Mlungisi’s Character

Mlungisi, also known as Mkhulu, was one of the most-hated characters in the faith-based telenovela as he abused his brother Siphamandla (Nay Maps) and misused the church’s funds.

Pregnancies in Umkhokha: The Curse

The Umkhokha: The Curse teasers also state that Mlungisi’s wife Nokubonga and Siphamandla’s wife Mabusi (Hope Mbhele) will fall pregnant at the same time. Viewers of the telenovela predict that Nokubonga’s baby will not make it as she is carrying Mamzobe’s (Deli Malinga) grandchild, who is cursed. A sangoma revealed to Mamzobe in a previous season that she killed her grandchild. Mamzobe will also return to her house and agree to her husband’s idea of a polygamous marriage after he impregnated her sister, Zodwa (Mbali Ngiba) for the second time.
