Actress Angela Sithole has joined e.tv’s Imbewu: The Seed.
Sithole joins the soapie as Zandile Majola and she made her debut on Monday, 20 December.
The character of Zandile was initially played by actress Buhle Samuels.
The channel announced Zandile’s return adding that she will brew up a lot of drama.
“Zandile returns to our world in season four and this time she is a different person. The life she’s led over the past few years has forced her to be a kept woman. She has become a mistress to a very wealthy man, who she has lured into her life using muthi. Her world is about to be turned upside down when the man’s wife finds out about her. With her new target acquired, Zandile decides to up the stakes and opts to use something much more permanent and stronger than her current muthi, so that she never has to find herself in the same situation where the power of the muthi diminishes. So, with the help of her inyanga, Zandile is given a snake, which will grant her all the wealth she desires on the condition that she takes very good care of the snake and meets all its sinister demands,” it said.
Over the weekend, Buhle took to social media to set the record straight after there were rumours that she was fired from the production.
She said she declined the offer to return to the show.
“The truth is that I declined the offer. I didn’t want to play a gold digger again. I would like to challenge myself and the production knew that, but still wrote a gold digger role,” she wrote.
Watch Imbewu: The Seed on weekdays on e.tv at 9.30pm.
