The plot is thickening and Khanyi's arrival as Zandile has fans on the edge of their seats. 

In the latest episode fans got to see a glimpse of what the actress can do and she got rave reviews.

Khanyi has managed to shake the tables, because when it was announced that she would play the character devoted fans of the show had no faith in her or that she would be able to give them the Zandile they met through the books. 

One viewer tweeted that she was pleased to see Khanyi give them what they read in the book Zandile - The Resolute.

"Zandile is kind of cold/detached, even in the book, so I don't see the problem with her reaction to the deaths."

Another viewer gave the actress kudos for her acting and reminded tweeps Zandile does not show her pain.

"For a second there I thought hawu akakhali she’s just been told her kids are dead, then I remembered Zandile doesn’t cry!!! Dassit @MbauReloaded is about to kill it."
