Nonka worked in and out of the Mhlongo Business Empire on Uzalo, spending the majority of her time in the saloon with Fikile and her companion Hleziphi. Nonka married Sbonelo, a young medicine graduate and prince of a wealthy Mhlongo family, in an attempt to change her family's fortune. She was rejected by her mother-in-law Gabisile, who disapproved of their relationship because of her social rank, and they ended up in a polygamous marriage.
Nonka broke free from her oppressive constraints by divorcing Sbonelo and enrolling in college. She went to college with younger classmates who teased her about her advanced age. Despite all of the challenges she endured during her studies, Nonka graduated with a Diploma in Administration, making her the first member of the Xaba family to do so.

Nonka was fatally stabbed by loan shark MaThabethe 'Pamla Khazi' after a fight over the confiscation of her tablet, just as her life seemed to be coming together. She went to MaMlambo, a traditional healer and sangoma, for cleansing and appeasing ancestors, just like every other traditional being.
She drags herself into a lot of problems after inheriting Njeza's stakes in the Mhlongo distillery, where she becomes involved in the disappearance of a Vlogger named Nomzamo.
