Can the real Mthembu heir please stand up – Umkhokha: The Curse

26 May 2023
MaMzobe introduces Mlungisi as the rightful leader of Ithempile LeNkosi.
Umkhokha: The Curse S1 Siphamandla and Mlungisi

When all her attempts to take down Siphamandla failed dismally, MaMzobe brought out her secret weapon, her son Mlungisi. AmaJudiya were left reeling in shock.  

We know Mthembu’s eldest son Siphamandla as the rightful leader of the Ithempile LeNkosi, Mthembu even confirmed this. Mlungisi coming into the picture as Mthembu’s first born with MaMzobe could potentially change things for Siphamandla and the entire Mthembu family.

Many may ask, who is this Mlungisi? Here’s a few things we know about him:

  • He is the child that young Mthembu denied when young MaMzobe was pregnant. This makes him Mthembu’s illegitimate child.
  • Mlungisi is the very opposite of his name. Destruction follows him everywhere he goes.
  • He grew up knowing that MaMzobe’s brother, Zibuse is his father.
  • He is arrogant. This comes from his good looks and the charm.
  • He can't even remember the last time he was in church, but MaMzobe wants him to take over the biggest church in KZN, Ithempile LeNkosi.

MaMzobe is known for trying every trick in the book to take over the Ithempile LeNkosi and she waited long enough to play her ace at a critical moment. Will it work in her favour?
