After her shocking exit a year ago; Zinhle Mabena-Ngwenya returns to Isibaya once again as Sihle, the conniving widow of the Chief; she plotted to kill with Ngwebedla and succeeded.
Sihle was ambitious and her glory was threadbare.
Sihle was so hungry for power and recognition as the Queen she would do anything even using her child to get what she wanted.
Zinhle continues to play the role of Sihle on the Mzansi Magic channel 161.
She was known as the jealous and selfish Sihle who only wanted things to happen for her and not Qondi (mam’Ndlunkulu – Queen) a role that was played by Jessica Nkosi who has exited the show. She even poisoned Qondi.
She worked with Sunday; the evil traditional healer to achieve her dreams but failed and had to be on the run or face going to prison and be banned by the community.
On her Twitter page, Zinhle said to her fans;
“I am so happy and grateful to you for receiving me with warm hands in this show.
I cannot wait for you to see what Sihle will bring with her this time; as Sihle left under a cloud. You will be pleased with what is in store.”
Most people on Twitter said they are happy to see Sihle back, but do not like the shenanigans she was up to before she left.
Karabo Maroga from Mzansi Magic confirmed the return of Zinhle Mabena-Ngwenya to the show and said;
“We will not elaborate on what she will be doing; the audience just have to watch and see.”
Many actors have exited Isibaya; the likes of Menzi Ngubane; Jessica Nkosi; Muzi Mthabela; Nomzamo Mbatha and others.
However, the producers said;
“There will be many new faces coming into the show; since there is a new family that has been introduced which includes Hamilton Dlamini; Enhle Mlotshwa and Tisetso Thoka.
Londeka Mchunu who played a role of Snegugu in Isithembiso is also joined Isibaya
