Jet Novuka recently joined SABC 1drama series Uzalo as Detective Mpabani and it seems he has some skeletons on his closet.
The detective has already shaken up things at KwaMashu Police station. He also has touched the nerves of Detective Mondli who is not comfortable with change.
According to the script a few years ago, detective Mpabani was on the wrong side of the police and was also a ladies man.
He fathered a child with a woman in KwaMashu and fled because he wasn’t ready to be a father. He joined the KwaMashu Police station so he could meet his daughter.
All he was told by his private investigator was that his daughter was a police officer and the mother passed on, she is not married and does not have kids.
The only two female characters who fit this description are Lilly and Zekethelo. One of them might come out as Detective Mpabani’s daughter.
