It’s for Life

In 2011 Mzansi Magic’s It’s for Life, a sitcom about four twentysomethings who find a squatter in their home, she co-produced and acted through Nyenyedzi Productions, which she co-owns with her sisters Nokuthula Nomaqhawe and Thuthukile Zuma. Their father got backlash for promoting the series on his official presidential Twitter account.


Together with Kobedi “Pepsi” Pokane, Zuma-Ncube co-owns Stained Glass Productions, which they used to co-produce Uzalo for the SABC1 channel. It was meant to compete with Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya telenovela, which was the second-most-watched television program in South Africa. It broadcasts five days a week, from Monday to Friday.


Numerous national media claimed in 2015 and 2016 that Zuma-Ncube received undue benefits from nepotism through contracts worth R8 million from the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality for Uzalo and R167 million from the SABC.

The first season of Uzalo, which debuted in 2015, was produced and filmed in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, where it was given R8 million by the local municipal government led by the African National Congress (ANC). It cost R50 million overall. The Democratic Alliance charged that the local municipality was supporting private production through patronage, pointing out that there would be no government control over the expenditure and that the funds could have been used to support less well-known entertainment companies instead.

The TV show was embroiled in controversy when Hlaudi Motsoeneng, the CEO of SABC at the time, decided to commission three more seasons for roughly R167 million, which was more than enough money to “produce about 20 programs,” instead of renewing the show. Co-producers Stained Glass Productions and said they “did everything by the book” and that they were not given any “special treatment” in response to accusations that they had interfered politically with the SABC’s procurement procedures.
