Sindi Dlathu says Goodbye to Muvhango, after playing Thandaza for 20 Years
Actress, Sindi Dlathu is saying goodbye to Muvhango after twenty years on the soapie. She was one of the few people who have been on the show since it’s inception 20 years ago.
Sindi Dlathu has been a regular on our tv screens, and besides Muvhango, she has had acting parts in television productions like Soul City, The Game, Magic at 4am and Khululeka. She says she wants to step away from her Muvhango role so she can do other things in the industry and so she can grow as an artist.
“Muvhango has been more than a job to me, it has been my life for 20 years and I’ve loved and cherished every single moment of playing Thandaza. After 20 years I’ve decided to give the Thandaza character a break in order for me to grow as an artist, venture out to explore new opportunities and discover what I can do as an actress and as a human being.” – said, Sindi Dlathu.
Thandaza’s character was quite powerful in the soapie, from the time she became Edward Mukwevho’s wife, so it will be interesting to see the direction that the soapie is going to take going forward.
The Muvhango team have made it clear that they will not be getting a replacement for her, ad they will not be killing her character off permanently.
