"I'm glad he left. That role really pissed me off."

@M_Luseke replied:

"I fully understand his reasons and as a fan, I've accepted and am at peace with his departure. Zweli has been duped for far too long and that has stunted his growth as a character. It made him look like a fool really. Bhut'Hlomla executed that role perfectly & we'll miss him. ❤"
