Zozibini is on her way home to South Africa. The star is scheduled to be part of the Miss SA judging panel for the finale at the end of October, which gives her reason to be back on home soil.
Online chatter, however, has surrounded the Miss Universe winner's other planned activities for while she's back. Twitter seems to be that Zozi is coming home for a silver screen appearance on the show The River.
Phathu Makwarela, the creator of The River, hinted that Zozi will be home and tweeted an offer for a cameo in the series. Fans are so excited to see the Mzansi favourite and speculated on who she could play if she accepted the possible part.
In a hilarious twist, fans came for Phathu and told him they didn't trust him not to kill off Zozi's character as soon as she appears:
@MkondeKitha: "You want to kill her? No Phathu we can't let you do that."
@thatorula: "Hell no. Knowing you, you're gonna kill our Zozi."
@KayiseNgqula: "There’s no way she could refuse now that you’ve put it out here."
@TrezzLife: "Don't kill and resurrect her in two episodes"
