By Nhlanhla Maseko

The last past days have not been easy for Scandal viewer's after being informed that two of their favourite characters are exiting the show and having to watch them leave the show when they had given them nothing but the best through their excellent acting skills.

As they always say that sometimes when people leave or when things end, they are opening a room for new things or people to come in. The kubeka's are coming in not as a replacement of Boniswa and Quinton but to shake things up on the show.

The Kubeka family members are not new in the entertainment industry specifically the film and television side. The family consists of talented actors and actresses who have contributed in making the South African entertainment industry what it is today such as Fana Mokoena, Slindile Nodangala, Sihle Ndaba and more.

Slindile Nodangala is a South African actress known for playing Ruby Dikobe on Generations and being Mam' Blossom on Rhythm City. Slindile was a mother to all on Rhythm City, there was no child that was not hers even though she did not give birth to them.

She was loving and kind that she always had a room to welcome those in need of a place in her home. Coming to Scandal, Slindile will be playing the character of Mrs Kubeka being the wife of Fana Mokoena.

Nodangala as Nomvula will appear as a mother who has struggled in the past and is willing to do anything to never return to that old life and create a better life for her children. She will also be seen haunted by her past.Nomvula comes to Scandal as someone who always has solutions to problems (a fixer) and a wife who stands by and supports her husband all the time.

Sihle Ndaba is popular known for playing a character of Smangele Maphumulo on Uzalo. She was a church going woman on the mentioned show, who believed in praying. Sihle as Smangele always wanted to be loved and happy but the love that she wanted was too much that it made her ending up with being desperate.

On Scandal, she comes as the only daughter of Vukile and Nomvula who handle accounts in the family business always putting the business first. She is set to love and live for that family business forgetting about other things on the show such as her freedom.

Fana Mokoena has previously appeared as Mandla on Generations before it became Generations The Legacy. He is joining Scandal as the head of the Kubeka family playing the character of Vukile with a dark past trying by all means to hide it.

Vukile started as a waste picker but found a dodgy opportunity and used it to succeed. Vukile on Scandal will appear as a father who will do anything to protect his children. He will be seen doing all it takes to hide and make a crime that his son committed upon their arrival dissapear.
