Thami Mngqolo has joined the cast of the soapie Isono.

Thami was best known for his role as Senzo Dlomo on Generations.

He will play the role of ‘Maradona’ in the new soapie.

Mngqolo who has been away from screens returns as a hustler who is now a part of Gabriel’s gang.

The Maradona character has a painful past as he grew up as an orphan who used to stay at the House of Grace before joining Gabriel’s gang.

Many South Africans are happy that Mngqolo has finally returned to their screens.
