Uzalo, which accurately describes the nature vs. nurture theory, focuses on the lives of two young men who were born on the same day but were switched so that each went to the other’s original family. The difference between these two families couldn’t be clearer, as one, the Mdletshes, are in charge of the Kwamashu community kingdom church.
The other family, the Xulus, is an organized crime family whose stock-in-trade includes every conceivable nefarious business, especially car theft. Uzalo has kept many South Africans enthralled with storylines that aptly describe the lives of these young men and the activities of the families and society around them.
