Mzansi Magic, a DSTV channel has brought in a new show to continue enetertainimg and educating viewers across the country called Umkhokha. However, not everyone is happy it and things might not end well for it.

Umkhokha together with another new show called Grootboom and Sons came to television screens replacing old shows being Nqobile and Abomama on the mentioned channel. Umkhokha tells a story about two families fighting for taking over when one family member passes on and it involves a church.Some of it's characters are Mzansi's talented actors and actresses such as Linda Sokhulu and Nay Maps.

Members of the Shembe church are not happy about Umkhokha. They came out to reveal that they are not happy and gave reasons as to why they are not.

Thokozani Mncwabe, spokesman of the Shembe church said, "As the church, we are not happy about it. According to the highlights of the drama mimics all the Shembe protocol".

"That is not allowed. We respect our religion and it's leaders but this is making mockery of it. A commitee has already been set up to deal with this", Mncwabe added.

Meanwhile, the channel responsible for both Umkhokha and Grootboom and Sons is looking foward to the shows being top viewed just like Abomama and Nqobile that they have replaced.

"Our dramas are top viewed on DSTV Compact during their time slots. We'redelighted to have such successes and are inspired to keep bringing our viewer's top content that keeps them glued up to their television screens. We are confident that both Umkhokha and Grootboom and Sons will continue this winning formula", Director of Local Entertainment Channels on MNet being a said.

It is so sad to see that members of Shembe church are not happy about the show and want to do something about it while Umkhokha could come with benefits for them and teach many viewers especially those interested in it about the church. Viewers must expect the unexpected regarding Umkhokha as it has been revealed that a commitee has been setup to deal with issue of the show not knowing what could happen in the end.
