DEATH OF SKHUMBUZO NSELE (article first published : 2007-08-7)

Young up-and-coming director Skhumbozo Nsele from Kwa Mashu died tragically on June 24 after disappearing with his friend the previous weekend.

One of Durbanís highly dedicated young actors and directors, he had his own theatre organisation called Artists Productions and worked on Welcome Msomiís Umabatha and with Jerry Pooeís Eager Artists theatre company on many productions such as Animal Farm Mine Ghosts and Free Birds. A former community radio station (Izwi Lomzansi), he appeared in many radio dramas on Ukhozi FM and won the Best New Actor Award at the Durban Theatre Awards in 2003.

In 2004, he adapted and directed the musical Isigcino Ngesami from SG Zuluís novel based on the romance between two university students.

At the time of his death, Skhumbozo was preparing for a Zulu matric setwork called Ngicela Uxolo. The production will continue under the direction of long-term colleague Sbusisiwe Ngubane.

Ngicela Uxolo will run from August 13 to 17 at the Stable Theatre. More information on 031 309 2513 or 0709 157 3657.
