Top SA celeb reconnects with fellow Zim actor

South African television and stage actor Sello Maake kaNcube reconnected with fellow Zimbabwean actor Daves Guzha at Theatre in the Park at the weekend. Guzha was on stage performing his acclaimed one-man play titled Aikaka where among the audiences were Maake kaNcube together with his wife.
Maake kaNcube is best known for his leading roles in the soap opera Generations as Archie Moroka and on the ETV soap opera Scandal! as Lucas “Daniel” Nyathi. “Well I had not met Maake kaNcube since 1988 when we worked together on some production,” Guzha said.
Maake kaNcube has defended his recent trip to Zimbabwe following criticism that he sold his soul by accepting an invitation by authorities in Harare. Sowetan reported that many social media users viewed the visit by SA entertainment personalities, who included actress Sonia Mbele, as an endorsement for Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU PF party.
Speaking to the Sowetan after the criticism, Maake kaNcube said he was invited by Zimbabwe’s Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Monica Mutsvangwa, for a tour of Zimbabwe. He said: The invite also fell in line with a personal campaign of taking my expertise in the arts to Africa, as I find myself hamstrung to make a contribution to my own country. I accepted the invitation for personal, social and business purposes. My wife is a Mbewe who is actually half Zambian and Zimbabwean.
“When I visited in 1988 it was for the first time I had set my foot in a country that had gained its independence from colonialism. “When I visited in 1988 it was for the first time I had set my foot in a country that had gained its independence from colonialism. It filled me with so much elation.”
Going there this time after the land reform, which found the country subjected to sanctions that crippled its economy and saw its citizens crossing the border to South Africa to eke a living, Zimbabwe is a nation on the trajectory of rebuilding and reconstructing itself brick by brick. During his recent visit to Zimbabwe, Maake kaNcube also visited Victoria Falls and farms owned by black people and created a video that he posted.
