The author and actor Masoja Msiza, who plays the villainous role of Nkunzi in Uzalo says he motivates kids to add positivity to their minds.  

“I don’t go around schools motivating kids just because I think they can’t for themselves or their future, but I’m doing this to add on the positives that they dream about and want to achieve for themselves. What I am trying to tell them is that they can be anything. They can be big and celebrated like me no matter what their background is. They mustn’t look down on themselves.”  

The actor also revealed to Daily Sun that he once went door-to-door, selling steel wool. But unfortunately, he was bitten by dogs.   

‘I have wound of dog bites. But every time I look at these wounds, I’m reminded of my long journey. I use them to motivate kids. And they pay attention when I speak to them.”

The 57-year-old actor, who plays the fan-favourite character Nkunzi also tells Daily Sun that his upbringing in KwaThema in Johannesburg was rough and painful.   

Msiza’s villainous role Nkunzi, who’s gotten away with murder for several seasons took a break from the SABC1 soapie.   

Sbu temporarily got rid of Nkunzi aka ‘Cool Kruger’ on Wednesday, 17 August, and he’ll be mourned by the KwaMashu residents.      

Viewers also speculated that Nkunzi’s wife Gabisile will stage his death to buy time and find out who poisoned him.    

Gabisile also staged her death two seasons ago when her ex-husband Qhabanga threw her down the river and she was declared dead for months.   

Sbu (Simphiwe Majozi) vowed to kill him when he got released from prison by the Magwazas and has attempted to kill him several times since his release.
