The Queen viewers are wondering why Bhambatha hasn't mentioned Thando Sebata (Jessica Nkosi), what happened to Vuyiswa (Zandile Msutwana), the Jamas storyline, and Olerato's behaviour towards her aunt Harriet.


Goodness shares her suspicions with Olerato, but she s not having it. #TheQueenMzansi

WHEN IS OLERATO DYING?' Fans of the Mzansi Magic telenovela The Queen wish the show had ended in season six after Harriet killed Hector, Thando left, and before Olerato (Lorraine Moropa) had a change of heart about her aunt. Viewers also took to social media to lambast the new family, the Jamas, who joined the show this season.

A viewer from the show tweeted:

The Queen has gone to the dogs .

This is after Harriet (Connie Ferguson) slapped her niece Olerato for calling her a black widow, judging her for killing her husbands Mzi and Hector


Viewers don't understand why Olerato is acting holier than thou when she already found out in season five that her family deals in drugs and that Harriet is a murderer.

Another viewer tweeted:

This new family doesn't belong on the show .

The Jamas who joined The Queen this season is played by actress Sthandiwe Nkosi (Londiwe Jama) actor Mbulelo Katise (Duma Jama) and actor Tisetso Thoka (Ayihlome Jama.

You know when you're writing an essay during exams. And it says max 500 words but you somehow write everything on the topic and end up with 400 words. Then you start writing whatever comes to mind just to fill the gap. That's how this new family feels like.


The funny part is she wanted to help her aunt in the initial stage Pay Netflix, prime video, and Disney + and forget about this DSTV shit is boring


That's why I'm so confused cause she was the one begging her aunt to include her in the family's criminal activity DStv doesn't respect us.


Eish umBambatha has he forgotten about Thando yhoo.


Yoh, does Vuyiswa know Hector is dead?

Bathong this new family has been saying the same things for 2 whole weeks.. keng kante? "Usfebe,leave my father s house and then Scelo yena e kare nerd-nyana sale a re she s not going anywhere FOR 2 WHOLE WEEKS" bathong re lapile hle #TheQueenMzansi

I stopped watching the queen a few months ago I just go through the Twitter threads to remind myself why I stopped watching it in the first place

Tapibird (@Tapibird1) August 12, 2022

I have no idea what happening on the #TheQueenMzansi . Are we pretending like Vuyiswa and Thando didn t exist . Has Cebo suddenly developed amnesia and can t remember that Thando killed MaJali . Why hasn t Bhambatha mentioned Thando since the shooting. Balance me real quick
