Uzalo fans breathe a sigh of relief as Gxabhashe returns

In true soapie style, Uzalo’s panelbeating crime boss Muzi Xulu aka Gxabhashe has risen from the dead. LIZEKA MADUNA and AAISHA DADI PATEL round up.

When Gxabhashe’s brother Mkhonto shot him a couple of weeks ago, fans of the show were distraught. But they remained hopeful of a Chuck Norris-style comeback.

On Monday night, after a seemingly interminable wait, viewers went into a frenzy when it was revealed the Gxabhashe was in fact still alive. Here’s how it all played out: MaNgcobo walked into the office and, shocked, found her husband waiting for her. Gxabhashe politely asked her who she was mourning.
