Popular actor Sindi Dlathu, known as Thandaza on Muvhango, is leaving the soapie after been with the production for 20 years.
“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,” she said.
Her last episode will be aired in March next year, though Muvhango’s associate producer Morishe Matlejoane said the production is not bidding her a permanent farewell, but freezing of a character.
We might see her again in future as her character will not be recast.
Dlathu also said this was not the end of her journey as she would always be a part of the Muvhango family.
“I have cherished every single moment Sindi has been part of the shows I have done and she remains one of the most talented people I have ever worked with. I have loved working with her and was looking forward to watching her continued growth. I wish her nothing but the best as she continues to grow and I have no doubt that she will tackle any role and character that comes her way the same way she has handled Thandaza. I wish her continued success and may God continue to bless her,” said, Duma ka Ndlovu, Creator and Executive Producer of Muvhango.
