The Queen Mzansi's Shaka

0 have signed. Let’s get to 35,000!

This petition is to ask the Ferguson Films to either reconsider the termination of Shaka's contract, also known as Sithembiso Khoza. And if the production company cannot do that, to at least give him an honourable send off, after all the years that he has graced our screens.

There are characters that have shaped the way that we experience the world, television and African entertainment and it is fair to say that Sithembiso has been one of them for the popular show The Queen. As fans, we try to understand the complexity of being actors, but also that of which production houses in have in ensuring the well running of their productions. 

It is why that we have started this petition, we might not be able to reshape the realities that currently are within our entertainment industry as a country, but we can ask for such a character to be given the nobility that it deserves as a send off. Nobody wants to look back at the legacy that Shaka gas left and only think pitiful brokenness.

We ask that you allow us to remember him in all his humour, wisdom and humbleness, even though he was often in the wrong side of what can be considered morally acceptable. However, we learnt to love him, and appreciate his humanity, please do the character justice.
