INSIDE MKHWANE AND MHLONGO’S CHARACTERS   

The new mafia family is the first wealthy family to join the show and is set to shake things up this season.

Bheki Mkhwane’s character Bukhosi is a traditional patriarch who is as quick with his brain as he is with his gun according to channel24.

Bukhosi who is dubbed a heist king is bold, outspoken, and charming and is made of steel. Fans of the popular actor will recall his villainous role in Isibaya where he played Samson Ndlovu.

He wants his sons Nkanyiso and Mlilo to take over the family business when he retires.

His wife Nomafu – played by Brenda Mhlongo is a tough woman who grew up in poverty like Sindi Dlathu’s character Lindiwe Dlamini-Dikana.

Mhlongo made headlines recently when she exited e.tv’s telenovela Imbewu: The Seed where she plays a sangoma – KaMadonsela.

Khwezi is an intelligent, beautiful, and naïve daughter who joins the family after they buy into Lindiwe’s mine – Khanyisa Diamonds.
