“The actress, professionally known for playing the character of Matimba on Giyani- Land Of Blood suffered a stroke while alone in the house at midnight on Monday. The stroke affected her ability to speak, write and read.”


According to Mavasa’s family, the stroke was caused by stress a depression.

“The reason for the stroke is stress caused by the ex-partner. She suffered from depression and stress alone without sharing with anyone,” said her family.

“During her pregnancy, she went through a lot with her partner. He used to physically abuse her and there’s proof of that,” she says.

“She gave birth to his child. Everything was fine, and I even registered the baby with his surname. After a few weeks, he claimed that the baby wasn’t his. He asked for the baby’s DNA and it came back 99.9%. Her baby is now two months old. Her health is bad because of him,” she concludes.

Mavasa is also still mourning the death of her son who passed at 17 months son in June last year.

“My baby passed away from lung disease and brain damage,” she told Drum Magazine at the time.

“He was born with lung disease, but I thought he was going to live longer. I had faith I would see him go to high school and university, but God.

In a tragic turn of events, the situation worsened for the actress when she was involved in a car accident, resulting in her vehicle being completely destroyed. This incident occurred just one day after the heartbreaking loss of her son.
