The Queen team confirmed that the Ngubane family has humbly asked for Ngubane to be excused from production while he is still recovering. 

Menzi Ngubane’s appearance on The Queen has been pushed back to give him more time to focus on his health.

The veteran actor was scheduled to begin shooting with the Mzansi Magic telenovela next month.

The latest development comes after Ngubane was hospitalised in May over an undisclosed illness.

The Queen executive producer Connie Ferguson said they wish Menzi strength to continue fighting the good fight and come back stronger than ever.

Co-executive producer Shona Ferguson added that they can’t wait for him to make his return soon to entertain viewers with his charismatic acting skills and screen presence.
