For a couple of months there have been rumours suggesting that Baby Cele and Siyabonga Shibe are leaving the SABC1 most watched soap opera Uzalo.
The rumours have been disputed though now it seems like Baby Cele and Siyabonga Shibe who play Gabisile and Qhabanga respectively are going to exit the show at the end of the current season.
TshisaLIVE has a statement from the show’s producer that reads “Baby Cele and Siyabonga Shibe will be leaving Uzalo by the end of season six. The story has taken this direction and will give us a riveting, high-stakes ending for both characters. The decision was made in consultation with the two actors. Both have given a tremendous amount to their roles on Uzalo and we are forever grateful for that. We will be introducing a host of new characters played by SA’s best. Please stay tuned and see as the story unfolds.”
It will be sad for many fans of the husband and wife pair on Uzalo to bid farewell as you could imagine.
What is even sadder is the knowledge that their days are numbered on the show.
I do wish the shows kept imminent departure quiet until we see it on screen as the viewers, because now we have to wait till early next year to see what we already know is going to happen.
