Zenande Mfenyana is a South African actress who plays the role of Goodness Mabuza in The Queen. Zenande is probably one actress who knows how to play the girl no one likes and we love her for it. Her role as Noluntu is probably one of her most memorable bad girl characters ever. The actress has also played roles in Ashes to Ashes and Igazi. Her role on The Queen as Goodness Mabuza is also another typical case of hate-her or love-her!

Zenande Mfenyana is not only an actress but a notable philanthropist. Giving back to the community is what she does. Last year she was part of the Goodness Krew by Clover Krush that went to give shoes to students in Sandizile Primary in Mpumalanga. The Actress has taken time to work with the CCBSA Schools Recycling Awards to spread the word of recycling and creating a waste free SA.
Zenande’s biggest flex this year was her pregnancy that took her off the screen. Her character, Goodness, is expected back after she left having shot her on screen lover’s fiancee. Her beautiful under water themed pregnancy shoot broke the internet as well as her bath tub shoot. Zenande Mfenyana gave birth in September to a beautiful baby girl, Baby Ballerina that she hides from the timeline and the public eye.
Sisterhood is one important aspect in Zenande’s life. Zenande has made no secret of how much she loves her sister, Siyasanga Akhe Mfenyana who has a role in Kings of Joburg. Baby Ballerina clearly hit the aunty jackpot!
Just like she has been hiding Baby Ballerina, Zenande Mfenyana stays hiding the love of her life. She might hint at baby and daddy spending time together but the actress has no interest whatsoever in publicizing her very private life.
The actress takes her style seriously. Most of her on screen and fancy wear is designed by designer B. Mashilo. Clearly the pair creates magic together!
