Uzalo Mbatha latest news

Thabo Mnguni, known for his role as Mr. Mbatha in the popular SABC 1 drama series Uzalo, has been making headlines lately, but not for the right reasons. His character, Mr. Mbatha, is depicted as a sxual predator who preys on young church members. However, in real life, Thabo Mnguni has a beautiful house and a stylish car that surprises people who are familiar with his character on the show.

Thabo William Mnguni, also known as Mbatha on Uzalo, not only acts but also owns a stunning house in real life. Despite playing the role of a pastor-in-training on the drama series, he is determined to become the main pastor. If you take a moment to delve into his biography, you’ll discover his passion for acting was ignited as a child when he witnessed the cast of Asinamali, a production by Mbongeni Ngema, rehearsing in Lamontville. The energy and the way they addressed community issues captivated him.


Recently, there have been allegations of sxual harassment against Thabo Mnguni, the actor behind the character Mbatha. However, the producers of Uzalo have firmly denied any connection between the fictional storyline and Thabo’s personal life. The character he portrays on the show, a sxual predator posing as a pastor at KwaMashu Kingdom Church, is involved in a plotline that exposes his sxual misconduct and abuse. Unfortunately, due to the show’s storyline, some fake news websites have wrongly associated Thabo with the actions of his character.
