Durban – The veteran actress Dawn Thandeka King, known to many of her fans as Mancobo on the popular SABC 1 telenovela Uzalo, tells how she had to make a choice between her career on the soapie and her marriage. Thandeka married her ex-husband in 2014, after they started dating from tertiary.
Her journey to recovery has been a thorny one, after landing the role of Mancobo. Since Uzalo is shot in Durban, she had to relocate and leave her husband and children in Johannesburg. That was the beginning of the end for her 15 year relationship.
The long distance relationship, resulted in Thandeka and her ex-husband not communicating well and the actress was depressed as a result. Thandeka ‘s ex-husband decided to finally end the marriage in mid-June of 2018. It took Thandeka more than two years to finally try her luck in a relationship.
Now working full time in Durban, Thandeka has found love again. She is dating fellow Uzalo actor, Mlungisi Ndebele who plays the charector of Nongoloza. People who are closer to the actress, revealed she is wearing an engagement ring>chaosafrica
