Season 10


Uzalo is a South African telenovela-turned-soapie created and executive produced by Duma Ndlovu which centres round two families - the Xulus and the Mdletshes - who are unknowingly bound to each other by their sons, who were swapped at birth.

These two young men carry the hopes and legacies of these families as they face the complexities of money, family and love.

In a country with a history as complex and multifaceted as South Africa's, what are the ties that bind?

Is it blood-ties that make up the family unit, or the bonds forged with perfect strangers who often become dearer to us?

Exploring themes of identity, inheritance and beliefs, a shocking secret revealed on a deathbed kicks off this fast-paced telenovela.

Each half-hour episode delves into the lives of the Mdletshe and the Xulu families who are immersed in contradictory worlds of church and crime respectively.

The drama also throws the issues of family ties and loyalties against personal ambition into sharp relief – from loving patriarchs who exert unwelcome influence on their ambitious, young sons, to the tension created amongst family members when one of them decides to pursue their own career goals and reject the family business.

Uzalo delves into what makes these ambitious and successful, yet troubled families tick.

The inter-family unease co-exists against tensions between the two families, who each represent opposite sides of the moral coin in their community.

Season 10 sees a host of new characters joining the show:

Geja (played by Mnqobi Kunene) is the leader of Amabutho eNdlende and a beacon of loyalty and ambition.

With an unwavering dedication to uplifting his community and family, Geja emerges as a champion of eNdlende, setting the stage for a riveting clash of ideologies.

Hawu (Bandile Maphalala) is a formidable stick-fighting champion known for his courage and strength, always armed and ready for any challenge.

Despite his rugged exterior, Hawu is a charismatic ladies' man and as such this charm inevitably sparks turmoil with Izinsizwa.

Sgidi (Vusi Mdiniso) is the eldest of Izinsizwa, driven by a quest to restore his family's lost livestock and achieve autonomy.

His unwavering focus on money and cattle leads him to quickly embrace the allure of material wealth upon his arrival in KwaMashu.

Phefeni (Lungani Mabaso) is a quintessential problem child constantly craving attention and notorious for stirring up trouble.

The move to KwaMashu triggers a transformative journey of discovery.

Nokuthula (Faith Mgobhozi) is a virtuous leader of the maidens in eNdlende who strives to instil values of self-respect and love in her community.

Turns out she is the apple of not one but two hopeful eyes.

Linda Sibiya, playing himself, joins K-Mash FM amidst turbulent times, determined to revive the station and reclaim its former glory.

As a seasoned broadcaster, he takes the helm of the breakfast show, captivating listeners with his topics and charismatic presence.

Evangelist Sakhile Sibiya (Ntando Mncube), a man dedicated to his calling, is led by an unwavering commitment to ministering to people in need.

Sakhile's arrival in KwaMashu coincides with a critical moment, as he becomes the beacon of hope casting out evil and inequities.

He wholly embodies the saviour the community has been awaiting.

In the Season 10 premiere: The Mhlongos are in pain... a pain no one saw coming.

Someone vows revenge upon KwaMashu for the chaos Njinji has caused.

Meanwhile, K-Mash FM has a new presenter and he is doing the most with it.
