Uzalo actress Thobile made her return on the screens this week on the SABC 1 telenovela but the Maphalala family is grief-stricken.

The family have a problem with the woman behind the character, Nokuthula Mabika.

In August 2019, Nokuthula knocked over a high school pupil with her car in KwaMashu, Kwa-Zulu Natal.

The accident left the young man named Sanele Maphalala paralysed.


At the time of the dreadful accident, he was in grade 11 making him 18 at the time.

He got into a coma for about two months, but the family’s excitement was short lived.

He became mentally disturbed and now paralysed.

The family was left shattered when they saw her face on the soapie as they still have not healed from the accident.

Justice was never served and the worst thing for them is the fact that she has not apologised to the family.

Instead she shifted blame towards Sanele making it seem as though he was in the wrong.
