Uzalo still number one show in Mzansi, despite audience numbers

Yet again mzansi's number soapie Uzalo has kept up with its grasp on the title of most watched show in the country, as it beat TV evaluations for July.

Around then the soapie was breaking records, in any event, outflanking the 2010 FIFA World Cup opening match record between South Africa and Mexico. The game was watched by 10.14 million watchers.

At the point when Uzalo began it was an account of two families in the municipality of KwaMashu, KwaZulu-Natal. The Mdletshe family are power players in the KwaMashu Kingdom Church and the Xulu family run a vehicle burglary organization.

The families are associated in light of the fact that their oldest children were exchanged upon entering the world during the beginning of a vote based system.
