Uzalo storyline has been on about Gender Based violence and a lot of South Africans can relate. Nkanyiso Makhanya who plays the role of Njeza on the show is currently acting as an abuser on screen.
He told Daily Sun that when fans meet him in real life they forget that he is Nkanyiso and not Njeza the abuser. He said both men and women approach him in real life to put him in order regarding the character of an abuser that he portrays.
The actor said most of them warn him never to beat Nosipho ever again because they don’t understand that it is just a character so he always has to explain.
He added the fact that he is approached by a lot of men shows that not all men are abusive. Nkanyiso said there are men who hate abuse and are willing to fight those who abuse women.
Nkanyiso revealed that he is now sure that he plays the character of Njeza perfectly as many people believe his actions on screen.
