Mzansi Magic's Sunday night primetime slot has on is adding a new local drama, Umbuso, boasting a star star-studded and acclaimed cast including Lillian Dube, Bheki Sibiya, Sandile Mahlangu, Mzwandile Ngubeni, Zinzi Zungu, Christopher Jafta, Makhaola Ndebele and Omuhle Gela.
Premiering on 3 April at 20h00, Umbuso is a story about street-smart businessman, Ma E (Sibiya) and people’s politician, Tiny (Ndebele), two old comrades determined to secure a post-struggle legacy for themselves and their families. However, after a brutal and bloody murder that shakes everyone to their core, a long-hidden and dark secret is finally revealed, cutting to the heart of both families. At the centre of it all is Qhawe (Kwanele Mthethwa), a daughter trying to keep her family – and its business – together.
While it’s the story of the past haunting the present, politics and crime, at its heart Umbuso is about family and the lengths people go to in order to protect those they love and what they believe is rightfully theirs.
Other cast members in Umbuso include Sphamandla Dhludhlu, Bathabile Mashigo and Bahumi Mhlongo.
Watch Umbuso on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161), Sunday, 3 April at 20h00.
