Viewers now want Hlomu and Sandile to get back together and for Hlomu to leave his wife because he's damaged goods.

Mqhele has also refused to see a therapist for the trauma that he experienced when he was still a child.

Hlomu hasn't told Mqhele that she was pregnant and lost the baby yet.

Thank God (@BonkoKhoza) January 17, 2022


Now we have to choose between him and Gomora


Congratulations to him. I do hope however that it's not a relationship role because I'm not liking how detached he and Mbali are now.

Another Khoza I would've loved to see on The Queen.
