- Muvhango is shaking things up in its 25th season by bringing in a mix of new and old faces.
- Returning cast members are Buhle Samuels (Matshidiso) and Sydney Ramakuwela (Mulalo).
- Other faces familiar to the small screen joining the show are Howza Mosese and Aubrey Mmakola.
Award-winning SABC2 drama Muvhango is shaking up its cast with new and returning faces for its 25th season, which kicked off on Thursday.
Viewers were treated to the return of the oft-problematic Matshidiso (Buhle Samuels).
Then, on Friday evening, they saw the return of the royal family’s prodigal son Mulalo (Sydney Ramakuwela) who’s back from Mauritius. Viewers can anticipate his scheming, self-victimisation and constant comparison with Azwindini (Gabriel Temudzani) due to Mulalo’s feeling that he should also have a prominent role in the Mukwevho family.
“The return of these much-loved and controversial characters, Matshidiso and Mulalo, aims to challenge the status quo, heightening the drama in the new season. We know that whenever these two are in our world, there is chaos,” said Muvhango PR and social media assistant Ndumi Zungu.
“They are forced to collaborate on getting themselves in positions of power at MMC, manipulating and betraying family and friends in the process.
“Unbeknown to them, a surprise that will thwart their plans is looming.”
