The last of Njinji’s army is Simon Nsimbi, the Magwaza’s right hand man and voice of reason, played by the renowned Ronald Mkhwanazi.
The police force welcomes Constable Biyela, played by the gifted Thabisile Zikhali, an honest and well-educated woman determined to keep the department on the straight and narrow. Alongside her is Flavia, played by the talented Sthembile Mhlongo, a focused and independent career woman.

Uzalo has been working hard to introduce new faces to the show and improve it’s storyline. Viewers almost had a heart attack when MaMlambo announced that she was going home for a while. Viewers thought she had left the show but she recently announced that she is pregnant.
Taking to her Instagram account, she penned a lengthy letter to unborn baby. “My baby, you are your grandmother’s answered prayer. She was so excited to meet you; even though you did not get to meet in the physical realm, I know she is currently holding you in the spiritual. My darling, every move and every kick of yours within me is a testament of both God and my mother’s continued love for me. You have changed me in ways that are inexplicable. We cannot wait to meet you.” Fans and colleagues have flooded her comment section with messages of congratulations.
