Merely weeks after The River had to halt the production of new episodes after a crew member had tested positive for COVID-19, Imbewu has now suffered the same fate.

And with Muvhango‘s doors now closed due to the possibility of a crew being exposed to the virus via close contact, the number of daily South African television show affected is starting to add up.

e.tv confirmed in a statement that the daily soapie, which airs on the free to air channel at 21:30, has to close down the KZN set and cease the taping of new material following a positive case from one of the crew members.

The channel said in the statement that the set will now “undergo deep cleaning to further minimize the risk of contamination, as per COVID-19 protocols.”

Adding, “The health of affected employees will be monitored over time, and filming will resume when it is safe to do so as to set out by health authorities.

Lesego Marakalla on Tuesday announced that she will be leaving Skeem Saam.

The actress, who has gained much popularity thanks to her portrayal of Rachel Kunutu Maphuthma on SABC 1’s daily soapie, has been with Skeem Saam for over 8 years.

The award-winning actress has revealed that she’s taking a break from acting altogether, in order to be able to focus on going back to school full time. “I will miss my Skeem Saam family dearly” she said in a press statement. “I have been with the show for 8 years and I have created some good friendships and memories!”

When asked if she would consider ever returning to the entertainment industry, she said she simply isn’t sure yet.

In her role as ‘Rachel Kunutu Maphuthma’, Marakalla has been one of the show’s leading young ladies, adding to the series’ sustained success over the seasons.

“To all my fans, I really appreciate the love and support that you have given me since day one,” she says. Marakalla will be dearly missed and we wish her only the best with her future endeavours. Her last episode is set to air on the 19th of June 2020.

Rapulana Seiphemo Leaves Generations

On to greener pastures!

Published

on

Rapulana Seiphemo The Queen

Rapulana Seiphemo was one of the last standing actors that survived the plunge of Generations the original SACB 1 soapie. He returned to reprise his role as Tau Mohale on Generations: The Legacy years after, and the thespian is now bouncing…again.

Last week, we reported that Rapulana was joining The Queen, and at the time, it was suggested that he was going to juggle both characters. Seiphemo had received permission from the producers of Generations: The Legacy to join The Queen as a Tembisa cop while under contract. While viewers will still see him on their television sets, he is scheduled to make his exit from the soapie in October.

Another actor pulling away from the soapie was veteran Vusi Kunene, who made his debut on Gomora last week. The cast of Generations The Legacy is getting new additions as well as old faces to fill in the void. Letoya Makhene who portray the character of Tshidi Phakade will make her return after leaving the show a year ago.

Set to brighten up the studio is the beautiful Tidimalo Sehlako, who is no stranger to the camera. Sehlako will be making her acting debut on the soapie, but has previously appeared on Mzansi Magic’s Isithembiso as well as BET Africa. She will star as Nthabiseng, the head of Jambo Baba.

Don’t miss all of the developments on the soapie every weekday at 20:00 pm on SABC 1.
