Simphiwe Ngema, who plays Thuli on Muvhango, is no longer shooting episodes for the SABC 2 soapie.
Sunday Sun reports that Simphiwe had some “serious disagreements” with the big bosses on the soapie, leading to her having to leave the soapie.
It seems Simphiwe found out that her character Thuli is not adding that much value to the storyline, and was deemed “useless”.
“Thuli is no longer shooting with Muvhango. But she’ll still go on appearing on the screen until her episodes run out. Right now she is on the road doing auditions, trying to get a job. It’s just so sad that producers have killed her off,” a source told the publication.
Muvhango publicist Amanda Ngudle, has also confirmed that Simphiwe has indeed stopped shooting.
“She won’t shoot with production for the whole season… She stopped shooting with production two weeks ago and will be appearing until March next year.”
That’s definitely some news for Thuli’s fans!
