Popular actors Nomzamo Mbatha and Sdumo Mtshali have played a loving couple on the show for over four and a half years, and had fans in tears this week when they played out a scene where Sdumo’s character, Sbu, is in hospital after an accident that leaves him hovering between life and death.
As if the nation hadn’t already been going through the most this week with the cabinet reshuffle and Dumi Masilela’s TV memorial, popular Mzansi Magic soapie Isibaya had viewers on the verge of a breakdown with scenes depicting what seems to be one of the show’s most popular character’s impending death.

Speaking to our source, Sdumo would not confirm whether he had left the show, explaining that he was still shooting with the production for now.
“I am still on the set of the show and can’t comment on whether I am leaving or not. I have been working on a number of projects at the moment and Isibaya have been great in allowing me to do several different things at the same time. All I can say is that fans will have to wait and see what happens in the future,” Sdumo said
