Although some Twitter users are excited to see what character Mkhize will be playing, some said the role should have been given to professional actors who need the money.
Below are some comments.
There are so many talented actors and actresses out there for Mamkhize to just walts into the production of Uzalo, industry bosses must really do justice to these out of work individuals and stop licking asses of influencers #istandfortalent

I’m glad MaMkhize is joining Uzalo. I hope she’s gonna shake MaNgcobo coz she’s been sleeping on her role. We know she’s capable of giving us more than she is giving us now but she’s holding back #Uzalo
