The TVSA Skeem Saam September teasers also reveal that the Maputlas will be left curious when the family member unexpectedly comes home, but don’t reveal who this family member is.

The Thursday, 28 September teaser reads: “The Maputlas are left curious when a family member unexpectedly comes home.” 

Viewers of the educational soapie have been wondering when actor Hungani Ndlovu, who portrays the second Tbose Maputla will return to the show since he ‘left’ on 28 July.

Audiences also praised actor Hungani Ndlovu for his role as Tbose after the SABC1 soapie Skeem Saam reached over 5 million viewers in July.

Ndlovu took over the role in July after popular actor Cornet Mamabolo exited the soapie in 2021 as the first Tbose Maputla.

Though it is unclear if the Maputla member coming home is Tbose or Leeto, Skeem Saam confirmed on their Twitter account in July that actor Hungani Ndlovu, who joined the show in season 12 has not left the show.

This is after Ndlovu’s character flew to Cape Town while his brother, Leeto Maputla (played by Eric Macheru) went to Johannesburg.

Viewers of the soapie were also unsure at the time if the popular character went back to Singapore or has gone to Cape Town for work.

The teasers could also be referring to Macheru’s character, who hasn’t appeared in the educational soapie for a month ago.

The TVSA teasers mention Leeto on Monday, 18 September when he surprises his staff and on Friday, 29 September when he drops a bombshell on his family.
