Johannesburg – Wednesday, 05 August 2020 - The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has learnt with sadness of the passing of acting icon, Mr Arthur Mbambo.
Mr Mbambo graced our television screens from as far back as the ’70s with a myriad of memorable roles which he always turned into his own. His most acclaimed role was playing Mnyamane Buthelezi, Thandaza’s father on the popular SABC 2 soapie Muvhango.
Mr Mbambo has been part of the SABC family for decades, starring in popular dramas like Hlala Kwabafileyo, Ifa La Kwa Mthethwa, Emzini Wezinsizwa, S’gudis Nice, Generations and Kwakhala Nyonini. Mr Mbambo has left a big void in the entertainment industry. He will be remembered for his immense contribution to the industry and will be sorely missed on our screens.
The SABC extends its heartfelt condolences to the Mbambo family during this difficult time.
May his soul rest in peace.
