In September, South African television viewers are in for more drama, which comes with a stern warning that it’s not for the fainthearted.

Imbewu’s new man suffocates MaZulu’s family

Two industry icons are set to grace SA screens on’s drama Imbewu. Respected actor Tony Kgoroge will be taking up the role of Zimele “Ngcolosi” Bhengu, husband to MaZulu (played by Leleti Khumalo). Ngcolosi is one of the three shareholders of Maluju Oil, a company he views as rightfully his.



Tony is perfect as the strong-willed, powerful and larger-than-life character, making his debut on Friday, September 7 at 9.30pm.

Then there is the man in the yellow car, MaJozi, played by popular actor Mduduzi Mabaso. MaJozi is a self-made millionaire who went to school with Zimele.

Mabaso, one of Mzansi’s leading actors, is well-known for playing the prominent role of Suffocate on’s award-winning soapie Rhythm City. He will be bringing more uncertainty to Ngcolosi as he pays a surprise visit to his wife, MaZulu.


Viewers can expect to see the debut of Majozi on Thursday, September 13. The world of Imbewu is a reflection of the unique interaction between rural and urban lifestyles in South Africa.

The Bhengu family has been keeping a secret from each other for many years, with betrayal and turmoil never more than a step away. Brothers Zimele and Phakade are both honourable men, but one will feel betrayed when he learns of a deep secret.

Catch Kgorokge and Mabaso on Imbewu at 9.30pm on
