WHEN fans heard that actress Dawn King was moving to Joburg, rumours started flying that she was leaving SABC1’s Uzalo.

However, she told Media she was staying on Mzansi’s most watched TV show and would travel to Durban for shoots.

Dawn, who plays the role of villain Lindiwe “MaNgcobo” Xulu, said although it was true she had moved to Joburg, she didn’t want her fans to get the wrong idea.

“I moved to be near my family but my fans should rest assured I’m not leaving Uzalo.

“I’m very dedicated to the show,” she said.

“I’m aware of the rumours making the rounds but they aren’t true.

“The people of Mzansi can relax, knowing their favourite character will not be leaving the show.

“I’m still shooting with Uzalo and yes, I have a lot on my plate but through God, I know I will be able to handle it,” she said.

Dawn said although she is involved in four other projects, she would still make time to travel to Durban for shoots.

The SunTeam spoke to Uzalo publicist Ayanda Mthiyane, who poured cold water on the rumours.

“The rumours of Dawn leaving the show are untrue. The relationship between the producers and Dawn is good and solid,” she said.
