Shocker! ‘Uzalo’s’ Baby Cele-Maloka (Gabisile) comes back from the dead

Uzalo actress Baby Cele-Maloka who played the role of Gabisile will return to the show next month (August).

Gabisile exited the popular soapie after she was strangled to death and tossed in the river by her husband Qhabanga (Siyabonga Shibe).

Even though the residents of KwaMashu held a funeral service for her and confirmed her death, fans of the show speculated the actress would return in a spectacular fashion as her body was never found. 

TVSA reported that Cele will return to KwaMashu to redeem her character and will not reappear as a ghost.

The actress exited the show earlier this year (February 2021) and was reported to be filming a series on in May.


Gabisile was discovered and rescued in the river by children after her husband tossed her in the river. 

  • She plans to clear her name and will try to convince everyone that she has changed and she’s a born-again Christian.
  • Gabisile might get arrested by the KwaMashu police and serve some time in prison for murdering Kehla (Thobanzi Nzuza) and Qhabanga’s baby mama Nomcebo (Nombulelo Mhlongo).

She might get away with the murders if she pins her crimes on her husband Qhabanga who disappeared after strangling her to death. 


Cele told The Citizen that she wanted to sink her teeth into her passion for directing TV and film projects when she exited the show.

She also wrote and directed a short film with the help of Bongi Ndaba and was busy filming a series on which isn’t titled yet.
