According to EWN, she was introduced to Skeem Saam fans a few years ago as the feisty and nosy security at Gauteng University when the soapie added Johannesburg as a location in its storyline.
Nokuzola Mlengana had acted in a number of other local dramas, TV adverts, and TV movies.
Mlengana joins a growing list of Skeem Saam cast members who have died in recent years including the likes of Karabo Mokhubela (Jazzy T), Mahuma Paul Rapetsoa (Malome Josias) and Thema Mokoena (Ramolao, Sis Ouma’s husband).
May her soul rest in peace. Fans will surely miss Sis Ouma from Skeem Saam.
