The rumors about Nonka’s death began circulating at the same time that her supporters were celebrating a new achievement brought about by the actress’s casting in the upcoming drama Grade 13.

The Xaba family that Nonka comes from is one that is considered to be of low social standing. KwaMashu is home for her and her family, which includes her brother Njeza, cousin sister Lily Dongwe, and aunt MaDongwe.

Over the course of the Uzalo storyline, Nonka demonstrates that perseverance and hard work are the keys to success; she offered a ray of hope to millions of South African young people who were trapped in poverty because of her story. Nonka was always able to prevail over difficult circumstances, regardless of how life treated her.

She was involved in an early marriage with Sbonelo, but she was able to escape the polygamous union before it became permanent. She attended a tertiary institution despite being older than her classmates and being ridiculed by them; she recently graduated with exceptional grades after completing the program.

After inheriting Njeza’s shares in the distillery, Nonka was able to play with the big boys and provide the distillery with much-needed marketing brains. This was despite the fact that Nonka had a difficult time finding a job soon after graduating.

Uzalo comments on the rumors that actress Thuthuka Mthembu passed away in a car accident.

The rumors regarding Nonka’s death were once more debunked as being spread by fake news.
The producers of the Uzalo show, Stained Glass Productions, responded to a concerned fan’s request for clarification by dismissing the death rumors and labeling them as fake news.

She is yet another celebrity and Uzalo cast member to fall victim to the hands of fake news peddlers; before, Sbu (Simphiwe Majozi) and Lily (Noxolo Mathula) were declared deceased by various online fake news outlets.

What Does the Future Hold for Nonka?

Nonka, who was born and raised in Johannesburg, has aspirations of starting her own production company and producing content.

“After receiving degrees in Drama and Visual Arts, I know that I can’t spend the rest of my life as an actor. Instead, I see my future as being the owner of a production company and creating content under the banner of my own company. Because God wants me to one day run a successful production company, He has strategically positioned me where I am right now so that I can learn as much as I possibly can.

The ‘death’ rumors surrounding the Uzalo actress Nonka have left her inconsolable.

She expressed her astonishment at the fact that some people would laugh at the deaths of others.

She revealed that she was taken aback when she and members of her family began to receive phone calls from people inquiring as to whether or not she had actually passed away.

“What hurts me the most was that news outlets even ran stories saying I was dead without confirming it,” she said. “What hurts me the most was that news outlets even ran stories saying I was dead.”

According to some sources, when some of the Uzalo actors heard the news, they experienced a panic attack. They attempted to call her, but due to the fact that the cast was still on vacation, they were unable to get in touch with her.

Thuthuka reported that she was having a lot of success in her acting career. She is scheduled to make an appearance in the upcoming comedy film Grade 13, which will be broadcast on Mzansi Wethu.

She is not the first actor to have her life assumed to be over by the internet.

Her coworkers Simphiwe Majozi and Masoja Msiza have been the subject of rumors that are very similar to this one.

DID YOU KNOW THAT: Volkswagen Polo cars are involved in the majority of accidents that occur on South African roads.


According to the findings of a study conducted by the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) and titled South African Fatal Crashes in Context, Volkswagen Polo automobiles are involved in the majority of accidents that occur on South African roads. According to the RTMC, the drivers of these well-known automobiles also account for the highest number of speeding violations that result in monetary penalties.

The findings make for shocking results because they were derived from an analysis of data on fatal crashes from 1 October 2017 to 30 June 2021 and data on AARTO speed infringements from 1 January 2019 to 20 June 2021.

According to the RTMC’s findings, out of the top 20 vehicles that were involved in fatal accidents, the Volkswagen Polo, the Toyota Hilux, and the Toyota Quantum were responsible for 43.2% of those accidents. In addition, the report notes that during the specified time period, there were a total of 45 232 fatalities resulting from 37 583 accidents that involved 48 330 vehicles.

The data also show that Volkswagen Polo vehicles were involved in 16.7% of all fatal accidents that occurred on South African roads during the time period described above. The Hilux finished in second place with 14.2%, narrowly edging out the Quantum’s 12.2%. In spite of the fact that these three automobiles are the most common on the roads of South Africa, they were responsible for 35 percent of all speeding tickets issued during the time period under review.

The Volkswagen Polo is consistently one of the most popular automobiles purchased in South Africa, and monthly sales of this model typically exceed 1,500 units. This helps to explain why there are so many vehicles of this model type involved in collisions on the roads.

According to the editor of Wheels24, Janine Van der Post, “It’s interesting that the RTMC claims that Polo models are responsible for 16.7% of fatal accidents in South Africa without putting into context just how many of these cars are sold monthly.” For a number of years, the Volkswagen Polo and Volkswagen Polo Vivo have been among the most successful models in terms of sales in South Africa. Both the Toyota Hilux and the Quantum are subject to the same conditions. Because there are so many of these cars on the road, it should come as no surprise that they have a significantly increased risk of being involved in an accident.

“For multiple months in a row, Volkswagen South Africa would often sell more than 2,000 units of the Polo and move comparable numbers of the Polo Vivo.

In order to put these numbers into perspective, the Volkswagen assembly plant in Kariega (formerly Uitenhage), in the Eastern Cape, recently celebrated the completion of the production of its 100,000th Polo Vivo of the current generation.

According to information provided by Wheels24, a total of 350 289 Volkswagen Polo Vivos have been sold between the years 2010 and 2021. Of this number, 251 726 were sold during the first generation, and 98 563 are the current model (up until December 2021). In 2019, Volkswagen South Africa achieved the best annual sales performance for the current generation of the Vivo by selling a total of 29,618 Vivos in a single year. In terms of monthly performance, the Vivo demonstrated the highest levels of popularity in October 2018, when a total of 3009 Vivos were sold during the course of a single month.

In the month of February, the local automaker will also be releasing the brand new Polo, and because it is such an appealing vehicle, it will once more help VW increase their sales.

Since its launch in 2018, the sixth generation of the Volkswagen Polo has amassed more than 73 439 sales in the local market, placing it in the position of the second best-selling passenger vehicle. On the other hand, the first generation Polo was presented to the regional market in October of 1996, which was 25 years ago.

“In 2021 alone, we have sold over 10,000 Polos in the local market,” said Steffen Knapp, Head of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand. “This gives Volkswagen a share of 21.8% in the A0 Hatch segment.”
