All the times Isibaya taught us to stay safe

26 May 2020
Not just your regular telenovela, Isibaya is incorporating important information about the times we’re living in.

We are living in interesting times. Rather than exist in a fictional bubble, Isibaya has taken a few moments to teach us about social distancing, the lockdown and Covid-19.

  1. When Skhaleni sanitised his taxi

He may be full of jokes but even Skhaleni made sure his taxi was safe for himself and his passengers.

  1. When Siza told Ntwenhle she couldn’t leave Bhubesini because of the lockdown

She may not follow the rules in business and politics but Siza seems to pay attention to the President’s orders…well sometimes.

  1. When the cast wore masks on set

Isibaya came back with a bang last night and viewers couldn’t help but notice that the cast was wearing masks and keeping a safe social distance. We stan a relevant telenovela.

  1. When Pam made sure Skhaleni sanitised

Skhaleni seems like the type of guy who might forget to sanitise, luckily he has a wife like Pam.

  1. When Nolwandle was ostracising Pam

There is definitely a need to stay safe and keep a safe social distance. However, there is no need to ostracise and stigmatise people who might have come into contact with Covid-19. Remember when Pam taught Nolwandle this important principle.


Stay safe and stay tuned to #Isibaya every Monday to Friday at 20:30 on Mzansi Magic DStv channel 161.
