The Sebenza Women Award nominee and Uzalo actress Thuthuka Mthembu, who is known for playing Nonkanyiso tell Daily Sun that what scares her is the list of women she is nominated with.

“These are incredible and highly talented women. It’s scary yet exciting to be nominated along them.”

“One must be smart and make sure that they use these opportunities to their advantage. This nomination is one of the opportunities I believe came with being in the industry.

According to the People’s Paper, the Sebenza Women Awards were founded by radio personality Kini Shandu, and aim to recognise the exceptional work by women in sectors including business, media, and community.

The actress’ character Nonkanyiso is dating a drug dealer Kwanda, who’s also her business partner.

Her best friend Hleziphi suspects that Kwanda is using the business to sell drugs and hide drugs in his beauty products.

The TVSA August teasers reveal that Kwanda will abduct both Nonka and Hleziphi when they find out about his crimes.

Nonka went on a shopping spree this week and has also bought a mansion for her family.
