Brutus’ eldest son Bhambatha Khoza is in his mid-30s and will be played by Khumbuza Meyiwa.

He is the black sheep in the Brutus household who is always misunderstood according to the casting description.

This has made him defensive as he feels his rightful place in the family has been taken away. He unknowingly behaves like his dad Brutus, often wearing his signature clothes and talking like him.
