Readers of the book series were not surprised by the departures of Mbau and Makhoba as their characters, who are husband and wife in the show travel a lot in season three. In contrast, others predict Makhoba is shooting Ishaka Illembe.
Audiences also expected Sodlaka to not be part of season three as her character commits suicide in season three of the book series.
The Wife broke many records as the most-watched show when its first season first premiered. This show was one close to people’s hearts as it is based on books loved in South African literature. Many viewers had read The Zulu wives book series and had asked for the books to be turned into a show. When they finally got their way, everyone was impressed by the cast chosen for the roles.
The first season ended with a bang, but the second one had many people complaining. Firstly, the production team deviated from the books’ original stories, which did not sit well with fans.
Now, it seems everyone is leaving. SAD!
