As a result of his performance in the hit drama series Uzalo shown on SABC 1, in which he plays the role of sexual abuser Mr. Mbatha, Thabo Mnguni has been the focus of multiple unfavorable headlines. Since Mbatha assumed his role as pastor at Kwa Mashu Kingdom Church, he has been the subject of allegations of sexual misconduct as well as sexual abuse. In the show, Mbatha is presented as a sexual offender who targets young people who are associated with the church.
William Mnguni, who stars in the popular show Uzalo, is best known by his soap opera alias “Mbatha.” Even a roof cannot protect him from the elements right now. The aimless meandering he does across the city is guaranteed to irritate the pedestrians he encounters. The residence of Mbatha has never been the subject of a filming project or a personal visit. But the truth is that Mbatha possesses a stunning residence as well as a stylish automobile.
Thabo On the show, William Mnguni plays the role of a want tobe preacher who is also the kind of person that isn’t taken seriously where he resides (KwaMashu). If he had the chance, he would do anything to be promoted to the position of senior pastor in the church.
In an interview, the actor William Mnguni discussed the factors that led him to pursue a career in this sector. He attributed much of his success to the performances of the actors in Mbongeni Ngema’s Asinamali. The fact that Mbatha has been acting for as long as he can remember is demonstrated by his statement, “I admired their enthusiasm and how they attacked difficulties in our community.”
Harassment of a Sexual Nature in Mbatha on Uzalo
Because they made Thabo’s character on the soap opera a sexual offender, the producers of the soap opera came dangerously close to destroying his life. During his time as pastor of KwaMashu Kingdom Church, he engaged in sexual misconduct with minors who were members of the congregation. The long history of sexual assault and other misdeeds committed by Mbatha was eventually made public.
We are all aware that certain viewers are particularly sensitive, and that they may interpret things in a literal sense. There were some viewers who were of the opinion that Thabo could no longer be differentiated from his on-screen image. It was fortunate that Uzalo spotted the situation quickly on their social media platform and rapidly addressed all of the bogus claims that were thrown against Thabo.
It would appear that the plot of the show has influenced fake news websites to label Thabo with the same negative connotations as his fictional counterpart. [Case in point:]
