Get to know Nonka from Uzalo

At the height of her career, Thuthuka Mthembu is one of Mzansi’s rising stars. She gained attention when she appeared as Nonka in the popular soap opera Uzalo. Although this is her first acting job, she is killing it in the character, Uzalo, demonstrating her skill as a professional. But since her rise to stardom, rumors and speculation about her personal life have surfaced. Here, we examine the life story, passing, vehicle, kid, and funeral of Thuthuka MtMthembu.

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, on October 28, 1998, Thuthuka Mthembu is a hardworking man. Her mother, a single mom who toiled nonstop to put food on the table, reared her. MtheMthembu’sher and siblings are not well known, but she frequently discusses how mom mother encouraged her to pursue her dreams and become the ambitious woman she is today.




In December 2016, Thuthuka Mthembu secured her first acting role on Uzalo, playing the role of KwaMashu native Nonka, who was eighteen years old.She debuted on Uzalos as a school-going teen and NjNjeza’s sister, who visited him in jail. She comes from a poverty-stricken Xaba family, whose members spend much of their lives trying to change their situation. Nonka stays in KwaMashu with her aunt MaDongwe, cousin Lily, and brother Njeza.

This is my big break on TV, and being on the most-watched show in the country is an even bigger achievement. I didn’t study acting, so being open to learning from other actors and the industry has been my go-to method. I have been blessed with this role, and I think as long as I am doing whatever I love, I will be living my dream.

When social media started spreading rumors that she was dead in January 2022, she made headlines. According to reports, Thuthuka, 23, passed away from brain injuries sustained in an automobile accident. The Uzalo showrunners, however, denied the death rumors as untrue. Is Thuthuka still alive and well?

Uzalo’s actress never died, so no funeral was held for her. However, fake funeral videos about her death were trending on social media. Thuthuka Mthembu was rumoured to have been buried in Johannesburg, her home town.
