A source revealed to the publication that Baby Cele decided to leave Uzalo and join Umkhokha. The source adds that Malinga was reportedly not happy with the treatment and resigned from the Mzansi Magic faith-based telenovela a few days ago.

The SAFTA winning actress Deli Malinga recently revealed to Sunday World that there are other roles in the pipeline which she couldn’t mention yet.
“I am shooting a few scenes in a fun drama, but they are nothing like MaMzobe,” she tells the publication.@mjbnkosi: “She’s a good actress but not to replace Deli.”
@JabzinSA: “Looks like the Producer Duma Ndluvo issue.. naku #iMbewu he did the same replaced aboNkululeko. Now it’s the same issue ku #umkhokhaTheCurse then come few months down the line or after two seasons, we will be told that umkhokha uyaphela nini..ai.”
@Khule387: “Ngiyabona Lana kuthiwa she is not happy with certain things and production is not willing to compromise. The best way is for Mvelase to take her, we can’t really have another person playing that character.”
@AfrikanChefZA: “That’s the worst idea. Baby Cele is boring as Gabisile.”
@cj_chauke: “I’d rather they eliminate the character or call up Mme Dawn Thandeka-King as replacement @DawnTKing.
