Maphumulo has been with the show since its inception in 2015, and it is unclear how her character will be written out of the show.
Fans of Uzalo will undoubtedly be saddened by the news of Pastor Gwala’s death, as he was a beloved character on the show. However, the show’s producers have a reputation for delivering exciting storylines, and viewers can expect the unexpected.
