South Africa morns Nyembezi Kunene, The Veteran actor director died 57


Emzini Wezinsizwa actor Nyembezi Kunene died 57, and South Africa morns over his death. The veteran actor and director starred in soapies like Generations on SABC 1 before it became Generation: The Legacy.

He was well known as the security guard, Macingwane in the popular sitcom Emzini Wezinsizwa.

He lives behind his wife and four children. Kunene’s son Manqoba describes his father: (courtesy of ENCA)

“He was a great man, and I think I’m speaking for all his children when I say that, he may have been a popular somebody when he was walking in the streets, But whenever he was home he always taught us to respect each other, love each other, work with each other, which is exactly what we are doing now.” He says “He would be so proud, so we have a legacy that’s so different from how South Africans perceive him, or how they have known him over the years. When he is home, he seats at his office, he writes all day, he loved his work, I mean I have never seen such dedication from one man. That’s the man he was, he was there whenever we needed him.”

He was last seen on SCANDAL on ETV!
