The popular actor Fezile Makhanya, who joined Gomora as Mr Nkosinathi Cele was introduced to Gladys as Gomora High’s latest Geography teacher.  

The star has reportedly replaced Zolisa Xaluva who exited the telenovela as Principal Melusi Dlamini at Gomora High School   

Viewers of the telenovela are looking forward to his relationship with Gladys (Thembi Seete) after her toxic marriage and divorce from Melusi Dlamini last season.  

#TeamGladys wants her to be happy and hope that Nkosinathi will treat her better than Melusi who continuously cheated on her with Thati (Katlego Danke).   

Fans of the show also hope he will give her a happily-ever-after because she’s a good woman unlike Thati.

The popular actor assured Gomora viewers in his interview with Drum Magazine that his latest character as Principal Nkosinathi Cele is a role viewers will love to hate.  

“He’s a really nice and loveable guy,” he says about Nkosinathi. “Gomora viewers will love to hate him, but they will end up sympathizing with him.”  

Viewers should also expect his character to be charming and blessed with the gift of the gab as he can talk his way out of anything.  

The high school principal is also an authoritarian who will clash with parents at the school. 

Makhanya’s character is also trapped in an unhappy marriage but will soon meet the woman he knows he should have married.  

Viewers should realise that his marital status will be a challenge for Gladys because she’s not a homewrecker and doesn’t believe in cheating because she knows what it’s like to be cheated on.
