Skeem Saam’s Lehasa has moved to the city with crashing waves, Durban for a new role that will see him literally save a life.

Cedric Fourie seems to have traded in his restaurant business scrubs in the City of Gold for the Surgeon scrubs in one of Durban’s hospitals, Durban Gen.

TV Plus announced the news on Twitter and said, “Cedric Fourie joins @DurbanGen_etv from Mon 12 July. Your eyes aren’t deceiving you: Cedric is playing Dr Mthembu, a persistent, charming and arrogant surgeon who never shies away from a challenge…and it’s going to include Zondo”

Entertainment Commentator Phil Mphela said Cedric will be a skilled surgeon who walks into Durban General – bringing mystery and intrigue to the wards.

If you are an avid Durban Gen viewer, you will remember that a certain patient was hurried into the Durban Gen corridors following a terrible accident that almost claimed his life. No one has an idea who he is and have since given the nameless patient the nickname “Mr Glass” patient having suffered a terrible accident. Could Mr Glass be Dr Mthembu?

Doctor Zondo has also been receiving flowers and sweet letters from an unknown gentleman that seems to have taken a liking to the sultry and sometimes short-tempered Dr Zondo. The gentleman has been very consistent and viewers are ready to finally find out who this romantic man is. Could it be Dr Mthembu again and if it is him, how did he pull it off?

Tweeps that seem to have given up on Durban Gen hence the ratings dip, have expressed that they will be watching the medical telenovela now that Cedric is forming part of the show.

It is still not clear whether Cedric will be leaving Skeem Saam for the Durban medical drama. It is going to be interesting to see seeing that these shows are already competing for viewers with their 18:30 slot.

Cedric was in something like a friendship with Youtube sensation Lasizwe Dambuza. The pair won the hearts of many South Africans by giving Mzansi a sneak peek of their friendship goals on Lasizwe’s hit reality show Fake It Till You Make It and with their sizzling content on social media.

They would attend events together and Cedric was even a cast member on Lasizwe’s reality show. Lasizwe Dambuza and Cedric Fourie really set tongues wagging when they attended the prestigious Feather Awards together wearing matching outfits.

Cedric was subjected to a lot of hate on social media with many saying he is “gay”.

A fan recently asked what happened between them and Lasizwe replied “It all ended in tears, Ausi,”

Cedric has had to fight off gay rumours again after posting a picture of himself on Instagram.

The Skeem Saam actor has had enough of people assuming his sexuality and has decided to set the record straight.

He said, “Don’t talk about things you don’t know. I’m an LGBTQI+ Ally I’m not gay. Don’t say “facts” when you can’t prove it. I help gay and lesbians have equal rights like all of us. Pictures don’t mean jack get your facts straight.”

Well, gay or not, we are so excited to see Cedric as Dr Mthembu breaking and mending hearts.
