Uzalo actor injured in car accident
Mpumelelo Bhulose, who plays gangster Muzi Xulu in the SABC telenovela Uzalo, is reportedly recovering after a car accident.
Duma Ndlovu, whose production company is involved in Uzalo, confirmed yesterday that Bhulose (43) had been involved in a car crash, but indicated the performer was not seriously injured.
“We heard about the unfortunate accident involving ... Mpumelelo. We are relieved he escaped without serious injury. We are happy production is not going to be affected as he will be back at work,” said Ndlovu.
The circumstances surrounding the crash were not clear. Bhulose had not responded to calls and SMSes from City Press at the time of going to press.
On screen, Bhulose’s time at Uzalo may be up. Entertainment website The Daily Vox said Xulu, also known as Gxabhashe, was unlikely to return after being murdered in the series.
