Actress Sihle Ndaba has bagged a major role in Mzani Magic’s Gomora and she is here to shake things up. She has already graced our small screens as Gomora High’s newest business studies teacher, Ncebakazi Manzi.
As per Mzansi Magic’s official website, they describe Manzi as calm and sophisticated yet conniving and intimidating. A family friend to the Dlamini family, the sizzling hot educator has ulterior motives. She does care for her learners and is dedicated to her job, but her naughty side comes out superior.
“Manzi is a passionate and dedicated teacher, who cares for her learners and is excellent at her job. She dresses professionally, but has a naughty side. Manzi knows she’s hot, she low-key enjoys the attention and knows how to use it to her advantage. Not only is she the new Business Studies teacher at Gomora High but is also the Dlamini’s family friend,” wrote Mzansi Magic.
In the upcoming episodes Zodwa, Teddy’s mother will start having suspicions about Manzi and accuse Melusi of adultery. She will suspect that he and Manzi are having an affair, however it is not Melusi that Manzi is after. It’s her son Teddy.
According to Mzansi Magic, Teddy will be a love-struck teenager who has deep feelings for Manzi. Unbeknownst to him, she too has a crush on him.
Teddy, played by Sicelo Buthelezi will have his innocence taken away from him by Manzi, who will break his virginity. His past relationship with Buhle never reached that point as she started dating Ntokozo.
His personality makes him an easy target and Manzi is well aware of that. His low-self esteem and reserved nature makes him vulnerable but his feelings for Manzi being an added factor, things are bound to go South. Manzi will use his background to try and rescue him from his alcoholic mother. Viewing him as a ‘man’ and not the student he is.
A livid Zodwa will be hell-bent in getting ‘justice’ for her son and will want Manzi to suffer for sleeping with her son Teddy who is a minor. She will also attack her where it hurts the most, her profession, by wanting her teaching license taken away from her.
Sihle Ndaba broke into the acting space with her character Smangele on Uzalo. When she was axed 3 years ago in 2017, she was left saddened and disappointed but was determined to do bigger things. Theatre was also one of the things she had in mind but her new character in Gomora will make her a fan favorite.
