Zakhele as Sihle in Durban Gen
Zakhele Mabasa joined the prestigious eTV drama series playing the role of Mcgyver’s cousin Sihle. At first, he tried to fool the others, acting as if he was Mcgyver, but he was caught out and came clean. Mcgyver had to skip the province as he owed a lot of people money he could not pay back and asked his cousin to step in for him.

Sihle tricks his way into getting Macgyver’s job and is surprisingly welcomed to the team. Sihle currently has some drama and misunderstandings with Calvin over his relationship with Thembi and Jack. This was after he found a pen he gave to Jack in Calvin’s room and confronted him, which Calvin lied his way out of.
