Uzalo Actress Gugu Gumede has taken a break from the SABC 1 popular show following the death of her mother Zanele KaMagwaza Msibi who lost her life at the Durban hospital on Monday, 06 September 2021.
The television star who portrays the character of Mamlambo on the show has been reported to have not been coping after the passing of her mother who was also a leader of the National Freedom Party. Recall that she also served as Minister of Science and Technology in former President Jacob Zuma’s cabinet.
According to reports, the Kwa-Zulu Natal-based politician died from cardiac arrest related to COVID-19. Her passing was reported to have led Gumede to miss her shooting for the popular telenovela. The Uzalo actress has urged the public for privacy while mourning the loss of her loved one.
Msibi’s memorial service was held on Thursday, and she will be laid to rest today at Ulundi in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
