Then in March 2021, Liteboho Molise, who played the role of Mulalo Mukwevho’s wife (Teboho Mukwevho), left Muvhango to star in 1Magic’s soap opera, Liganishoni.
She got her career breakthrough with Muvhango as she stayed on the show for close to a decade. It was hard for her to bid farewell to her fans as her much-loved character would be missed. Her character was written out after she got arrested for the attempted murder of her husband, Mulalo, and the murder of Pfareni. Furthermore, Tebogo Thobejane reportedly left Muvhango in mid-2021. She spent only a few months in the soap opera, having joined the cast as Belinda in January 2021. She was sighted at the OR Tambo International Airport departures on June 30th, 2021.
