Popular actress Charmaine Mangwende who is popularly known for playing the character Mai Huni in defunct soap Studio 263 has died.
Mangwende’s death was confirmed by fellow actress Charity Dlodlo who played Mai Madziva in the same soap. Dlodlo said Mangwende’s death was a great loss to the film industry. The cause of death has not been disclosed. Said Dlodlo:
Charmaine was always a jovial person and she would always make people laugh on set. Not only have we lost a veteran actress but we have lost a sister and a friend. It is also sad that with our industry in Zimbabwe great artists have nothing to show for the hard work they have done.
