Some Cast Members Who Left Skeem Sam
Even the best TV series get to experience cast members occasionally leaving the series, and Skeem Saam is no exception. The show has sometimes left fans with an awful feeling when their favorite actors have decided to call it a day on the show. At other times fans are relieved to see a character go.
Reasons for departures often arise from a decision to pursue personal interests, as was the case of actor Cornet Mamabolo, who portrayed the character of Thabo Maputla on the show and who left to focus primarily on his business as a financial services provider. Oros Mampofu, who played the role of Jama, was forced to leave because the showrunners were unwilling to meet his demands of increased pay.
Some departures were motivated by decisions to move on to bigger opportunities, like actress Amanda Du Pont, who left Skeem Saam for BET Africa’s Isono, to take on the role of Mamba after ending things as the character Leo Mthiyane on Skeem Saam.
The rather curious departure of actress Phophi Mudau Ratlabala, who played the character Cindy Khuzwayo. Ratlabala was initially tight-lipped about her reasons for leaving the show. However, she most recently returned to clear the air about the much-speculated reason for her sudden departure.
The actress revealed that she was silent out of respect for her new calling as a traditional healer. The actress has since revealed that she is returning to the screens and will do her job alongside her new calling as a sangoma. It remains to be seen whether she will be returning to Skeem Saam.
There Are No New Additions To The Cast Of Skeem Saam
Since the last additions in January, which saw the introduction of Mosa Nkwashu as Lewatle, Zizo Sobhutyu as Mosebjadi, and Thabiso Molokomme as Paxton Kgomo, the show has regained enough stability to convince the showrunners that there won’t be a pressing need for new additions.
The South African TV Series Skeem Saam Premiered In 2011
