Every Thursday, when three episodes of The Wife air on Showmax, the show and its actors are sure to trend on social media. Based on Hlomu the wife book series, the drama series has viewers hooked and begging for more drama. Its star-studded cast constantly adds new faces and this week was no exception. Sokhulu Mthiyane joins The Wife cast as the police commissioner.
With the previous events in Mbuba, the Zulu brothers find themselves back home in Johannesburg, trying to rectify their mess. They also had asked for the commissioner’s help to get Zandile out of prison. With the commissioner almost retiring, they want to push the deal to happen before the man is replaced in the office. Nkosana and his brothers raise R65 million rand to give the commissioner as a bribe.
However, the greedy police commissioner is not satisfied and refuses the money for the R80 million they had agreed on. Despite his wife whispering that he take the money offered because it’s a vast amount and an excellent retirement package, the man still refuses. Nkosana, who is worried about his wife Zandile and wants to do everything possible to get her out of prison, takes the matter to his brother. Together, they agree that they will raise the money needed no matter what happens.
Sokhulu Mthiyane’s previous roles as an actor
Sokhulu Mthiyane has been in the acting industry for some time now. He is best known for his roles in the movie The jakes are missing, produced in 2015 and the hit 2018 movie Frank and Fearless. Besides being a star in the film, the actor has his fair share of experience bringing characters to life in popular South African drama soapies.
Sokhulu Mthiyane can be described as a typecast actor due to the similarities between most of his roles on Television. Most of the characters he brings to life are feared gangsters and unlawful people, and he does justice to the script. Sokhulu has landed roles in Rockville, where he worked alongside Siyabonga Shibe. While still working on Rockville, the actor got a role on Gomora. He was also part of SABC 3’s Soap on a rope.
