Beautiful pictures of fearless Dawn Thandeka King (Mangcobo) from Uzalo. She is the best.

The very brave woman we've seen on our screens, or should I say the bravest?? This is not a woman that anyone can mess up with, she is a woman who values herself, knows her worth and does not settle for less. All this we've seen when she was still acting on the SABC1's Uzalo where she played the role of Mangcobo the wife of the late Xulu. When her husband died she was the one who continued with all businesses without any problems until Nkunzi came to her life and took over the businesses but she never said "I'm now out of the business because Nkunzi is managing them" she continued wanting to know everything concerning the businesses. Only brave women can do what she did. Are you one of the bravest?

Her real name is Dawn Thandeka King she is not only an actress but also a musician and motivational speaker who comes from Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal. 

She is Zulu and we all have the mentality that Zulu's do not want anyone to mess up with them, and yes Thandeka portrays exactly that.

She is not just a Zulu with no brains, she is educated. After completing her matric she went to Durban University of Technology which was Technikon Natal by then. That is where she furthered her studies and obtained a certificate in drama studies.

The queen was married to a Durban-based businessman Jabulani Msomi, they stayed together for 15 years and she gave birth to five children namely Jadazia, Jaedon, Jayda, Jaydeen, and Jaedon. Their marriage then ended in 2017 which left her a single mom who had to make sure the children are always okay. As a strong woman that she is, she has never went to social media platforms to complain about being a single parent of five children or about the father not supporting them or posting anything that has to do with her failing to groom her children. She is a strong imbokodo that will never be shaken by any kind of situation, not even the strong winds can succeed.

We have also seen Dawn Thandeka King on the Mzansi Magic's Lockdown where she was playing the role of Mazel who was also fearless. Can you be given a role of a brave and fearless person if that's not your character? No I doubt. She did her best and won a SAFTA for Best Actress in a lead role in the Drama.

If all South African women can be strong as she is, we wouldn't be finding high cases of violence in marriages, she stood up for herself and left the marriage she felt was no longer worth it and she did not let the ''im staying for the sake of my children" syndrome take over, she chose to be left with them and be at peace.
