The Nonka character comes from poor and looked down upon Xaba family. She lives with her brother Njeza, cousin sister Lily Dongwe and aunt MaDongwe in KwaMashu. Over the Uzalo storyline, Nonka proves that hard work and perseverance are the recipes of life; she provided a beam of hope to millions of South African young people trapped in poverty.

No matter how life treated her, Nonka always conquered challenging situations. She got involved in an early marriage with Sbonelo and managed to pull out of the polygamous union. Enrolled at a tertiary institution despite being older and ridiculed by classmates, she recently attained a Diploma with exceptional grades.

Despite struggles to secure a job soon after graduation, Nonka rolled with the big boys after inheriting Njeza’s shares in the distillery, providing much-needed marketing brains.

Nonka death rumours were dismissed as fake news again.


Uzalo show producers Stained Glass Productions rubbished the death rumours and labelled it fake news after a concerned fan asked for clarity. She is yet another celebrity and Uzalo cast member to suffer at the hands of fake news peddlers; previously, Sbu (Simphiwe Majozi) and Lily (Noxolo Mathula) were reported dead by various online fake news publications.
