will, from to­mor­row, un­veil a new face in Zam­bian-born ac­tress Muduna Ka­pumba play­ing an ar­rested drug mule.

But Ka­pumba will be re­mem­bered for play­ing se­duc­tive Nige­rian busi­ness­woman Shola Ba­balola on SABC2 s last year and also on e.tv’s

I will be en­ter­ing go­ing straight to jail where I will share a prison cell with Lelo,” said Ka­pumba, who didn’t give away much on her char­ac­ter as her en­try has been kept a sur­prise for the un­sus­pect­ing view­ers.

My char­ac­ter is of a well ed­u­cated Nde­be­le­s­peak­ing Zim­bab­wean from Bulawayo whose one par­ent is Shona and moved to South Africa for a bet­ter

by life.

But on her ar­rival in Joburg with­out rel­a­tives or friends, she be­comes vul­ner­a­ble and nervy.

Life is not easy as she strug­gles to get a job de­spite hav­ing the right pa­pers to stay and work in SA.”

Sun­day World sources say her char­ac­ter then falls in love with a drug dealer who sends her on a mis­sion with a nar­cotic con­sign­ment and she gets busted, land­ing in jail.

It’s a bril­liant and brave sto­ry­line that re­flects the life of duped drug mules and the hard­ships they face be­cause of their lovers’ drug deal­ing,” said the source.

Ka­pumba was born and raised in Lusaka, Zam­bia, and moved to SA with her father in 1993. She at­tended Bishop Bavin ju­nior high school and Se­daven high school, east of Joburg.

She started act­ing at a young age in Lusaka when she fea­tured in a tele­vi­sion com­mer­cial. She took a back seat un­til 2014 when she met Kenyan Os­car Award-win­ning ac­tress Lupita Ny­ong’o who in­spired her to fol­low her pas­sion and make her act­ing dreams a re­al­ity.
