Gomora is a popular South African soapie, which airs on Mzansi Magic. The show, which has the theme of inequality, comes in weekly episodes that keep its fans glued to their seats while it airs. Interestingly, interest in the show among South African TV viewers/lovers is so high that it also leaves them anticipating the next episodes.
The show tells a story that describes the fine line between the rich and the poor. It also bears the immoral social stratification and class rules that society has imbibed. In this case, the telenovela follows the lives of two families in the different sides of this imaginary divide – The Dlamini’s and the Ndaba’s. The first episode was released in March 2020 and is created by a handful of South Africa’s best brains when it comes to TV content, including Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Amanda Lane. It is produced for TV by Seriti Films.
Here’s An Overview Of What Happened On Gomora In November 2021
This engaging South African drama series is set to blow off the roof this month as it has in store what viewers never saw coming. The November episodes of Gomora were very entertaining as the Mzansi Magic telenovela continued with its emotional and suspense-filled drama. But just in case you missed out on the show last month, here’s a snippet of what you missed – what went down last month on Gomora.
The first November episode kicked off with Melusi and Gladys having difficulties getting along, which they would later resolve due to a tragedy that occurred. Meanwhile, Don meets his waterloo after leaving in fear of death at the hands of Thathi and trying to kill her first, and he eventually dies of a gunshot by Mazet while they are struggling for his gun. The incident also leaves Mazet paralyzed for life.
So Don is dead as he tried to kill Ntokozo, who he had asked to dig his own grave; Mazet will have to face the reality of being in a wheelchair for the rest of her life, and Sibongile, on her part, has revenge on her mind as she seeks to avenge the death of her father.

Israel Matseke-Zulu Exits Gomora After His Character, Don Buthelezi, was Killed on the Telenovela Last Month
Coming into December 2021, one notable face will be missing from the line-up of Gomora actors and fan-favorite Israel Matseke-Zulu, who played the character of Don Buthelezi on the soapie. If you followed the show in November 2021, you know that Don was shot accidentally by Mazet (played by Siphesihle Ndaba) as she tried to wrestle his gun from him. Matseke-Zulu bows out from the show after seven months – having joined the cast earlier in the year.
The actor said that he had asked for his character to be killed so that he could attend to his health as it has been reported that he is dealing with an undisclosed medical condition. His exit was received with sadness by the Gomora faithful, who didn’t see it coming and asked the show producers to reinstate the iconic actor. Whether that will be done remains to be seen. For now, we wish him a speedy recovery as he deals with his health challenge.
