Arthur Mbambo passed away last week after being in hospital for two weeks. The actor played Thandaza's father, Mnyamane Buthelezi, on the SABC2 soapie Muvhango.
Arthur's daughter, Mbali Mbambo, told TshisaLIVE that news of her father's death came as a complete shock.
She said, “I would speak to him daily on WhatsApp and he would give me such hope that he was doing well and was going to pull through. I don't know what changed because suddenly I got a call that he was no more. It felt like my heart had broken.”

“It was all so sudden. He went into hospital and because of Covid-19 we couldn't visit him. That was the last time we saw him. I spoke to him the day before his passing and he said he was OK and was being looked after by doctors. He told us that we shouldn't worry about him,” Mbali added.
Arthur was admitted into a Johannesburg hospital two weeks ago. It's possible that he had Covid-19 as his daughter said the family was not allowed to visit him in the hospital. Muvhango had also previously announced that one of its production members had been exposed to Covid-19.
