Mzansi Magic has announced that veteran actor, Menzi Ngubane, will not be reporting for duty in July, due to his ongoing health issues.
In a Twitter post on Monday, 29 July 2020, the channel stated, “Legendary actor @MenziNgubaneZA was set to start filming #TheQueenMzansi S5 in July but his family have humbly requested he take more time to focus on his health and recovery.”
The Queen announced that Menzi will be joining the cast in May 2020, although it was later revealed that he had been suffering from ongoing health issues which have subsequently made him incapable of working.
Executive producer, Connie Ferguson commented on Menzi’s situation, stating, “We were very excited when we announced that Menzi will be joining The Queen family, as he brings with him a wealth of experience. We will continue keeping them in our prayers and supporting them on this journey, and wish Menzi strength to continue fighting the good fight, and come back stronger than ever. We can’t wait for him to make his return soon to entertain our viewers with his charismatic acting skills and screen presence.”
