“We are scared for our lives. Durban is on fire and people are going crazy. Roads are a dangerous zone. It’s better to stay at home to save our lives,” said the actor.
Another Uzalo actor said: “We are still going to starve. This is madness. We just pray that our shooting studios won’t be set alight as many buildings are on fire. Life is hard, and by the looks of things, it’s going to get harder. Let’s pray for Mzansi.”
