There are reports saying actor Menzi Ngubane who was said to be joining THE Queen has apparently not been contacted by the Fergusons to start shooting.
The veteran actor was supposed to start playing the role of Sithole on the Mzansi Magic telenovela.
Menzi is no longer seriously ill but still the Fergusons have remained silent. The actor was supposed to start shooting in July.
He was set to join The Queen cast along with Rapulana Seiphemo, Jessica Nkosi and Ntando Duma. His debut was delayed due to his illness.
Reports are saying Menzi Ngubane is currently shooting with his former Generations cast members Sophie Lichaba, Katlego Danke and Sonia Mbele.
