Ngcuka’s early fall from grace isn’t what we want
If there’s one thing we’ve come to learn about Ifalakhe, it’s that no character is safe from the writers’ chopping block.
Since the show began, we’ve seen four significant characters die – even though they had what we thought were prevalent roles.
And Ngcuka is the most recent addition to the list of characters whose demise we’ve witnessed. Although he was physically unappealing, we watched Ngcuka’s performance in awe every time he arrived on screen.
He may have been an evil character despised by all, but he introduced a healthy balance between evil and good.
Viewers are not pleased with Ngcuka’s death
His death sure did come as a surprise, and we’d usually be glad that an evil character had been dealt with, but in this case, it is clear that viewers did not want Ngcuka to die so early in his reign.
The need to see Ngcuka prevail in his evil ways was clearly felt all round, but we have to trust the show’s writers, who obviously have more surprises in store for us.
And, of course, let’s not forget that one of the strongest themes in Ifalakhe is witchcraft and sorcery, so we can’t help but wonder if Ngcuka will be brought back from the dead in upcoming episodes.
If the dead could be brought back to life in the first episode, why can’t they do the same with Ngcuka?
