What's Happening?


@MuvhangoSA's 2000th Episode- Tonight on @SABC_2

Tonight, SABC 2's Muvhango, which is the South Africa's second most watched soapie, celebrates its 2000th episode. And a fitting way to celebrate this great milestone, is a wedding of one of the long suffering (in love) lead actresses and original cast member, Thandaza Buthelezi (Sindi Dlathu).

Thandaza will tonight be re-marrying her ex-husband, Ranthumeng Mokoena, played by singer/actor, Brian Temba. Judging by the pictures, it's going to be one classy affair. It's great to see former cast members, like Amanda du Pont and Matshepo Maleme, on the show for this wedding special. Amanda played Thabisile, while Matshepo played Mapule. Both had volatile relationships with Thandaza, But I guess absence does make the heart grow fonder. But those bridesmaids dresses? Terrible. 

Thandaza has seen her fair share of weddings, having been married to Edward Mukwevho (deceased) then to his cousin, Ndalamao, who cheated on her with Meme, forcing them to get a divorce. She then met and fell in love with Pheko Mokoena, who also happened to be Edward's cousin, from his maternal side. This was seen as a taboo relationship. She was forced to let him go (not that Pheko made it easy for her). She then met Ranthumeng, who is Pheko's cousin (sooo incestuous) and married him. 
Ranthumeng (Themba Nofemele) and Thandaza's first wedding
They divorced last year after he cheated on her with his ex-girlfriend, Teboho and Thandaza had a fling with Pheko, who happens to be the love of her life. Teboho then shot Thandaza. 

Ranthumeng and Thandaza reconnected earlier this year and tonight will be tying the knot. 

Congratulations to Duma ka Ndlovu and his Word of Mouth Pictures team for the show's success. From being a weekly drama in the 90s to a daily soap in 2014, it's a great accomplishment. Here's to 2000 more episodes. 

Tune in to the wedding spectacular at 9pm tonight, on SABC 2.
