Show Details

Uzalo is an SABC1 property and is broadcast Monday - Friday at 20:30 on Mzansi Fo Sho.

The two families are immersed in contradictory worlds of church and crime respectively.  The drama also throws the issues of family ties and loyalties against personal ambition into sharp relief – from loving patriarchs who exert unwelcome influence on their ambitious, young sons, to the tension created amongst family members when one of them decides to pursue their own career goals and reject the family business. Uzalo delves into what makes these ambitious and successful, yet troubled families tick.

The Mdletshes are a God-fearing family with its patriarch pastor Melusi Mdletshe (Bheki Mkhwane) presiding over the charismatic Kingdom of Canaan Church and its promising gospel choir. The church gives a strong moral standard that is in direct conflict with the Xulu family, ruled by Muzi Xulu (Mpumelelo Bhulose), which is invested in a life of crime.

Lead Cast includes: Naymaps Maphalala (Mxolisi Xulu); Khumbulani Kay Sibiya (Ayanda Mdletshe); Mpumelelo Bhulose (Muzi Xulu); Bheki Mkhwane (Melusi Mdletshe); Dawn King (Lindiwe Xulu) and Leleti Khumalo (Zandile Mdletshe).

Uzalo is written by playwright-producer Duma Ndlovu and is produced by Gugulethu Ncube and Pepsi Pokane.
