He’s been working with Leon Schuster since 1990 and he’s heard no stories of racism – until now, actor Alfred Ntombela tells YOU.

He’s starred in several of Leon’s films, including Mr Bones, Oh Shucks, I’m Gatvol and Shucks! Your Country Needs You and can’t understand streaming giant Showmax’s decision to remove all the Schuster films.
