CityPress - - News - – Paddy Harper

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.
