ebogoFormer Muvhango Actress Tebogo Thobejane Forced to Leave Country Due to Death Threats
Former Muvhango actress, Tebogo Thobejane, revealed that she was forced to leave the country after receiving death threats. Thobejane said that her life has been turned upside down as she spends most of her time out of the country and away from her son for her own safety. The mother of one said that she cannot afford bodyguards, and the person harassing her is running rampant, causing her to rearrange her entire life.
Friend Turned Foe after fight with Inno Morolong
Thobejane said that her fight with former friend-turned-foe, Inno Morolong, has reached boiling point after Morolong posted Thobejane’s naked pictures on social media in January, exposing her cellphone number and residential addresses. Tebogo said she has been getting threatening voice calls on her cellphone, promising to kill her.
Thobejane filed a protection order at the Johannesburg magistrate’s court, opened a case of defamation at the Douglasdale police station and a case of defamation of character in the last two years against Morolong.
Life in Foreign Countries
Thobejane said she has had to seek refuge in foreign countries as the verbal abuse from Morolong has turned into online bullying. Thobejane spends most of her time in Ghana and Los Angeles, where she has also been busy with other work projects.
She added that Morolong’s online accusations about her being “promiscuous” and “sleeping with a president” have also cost her job opportunities, and she has been silently cancelled in the acting industry due to what has been said about her.
“I am a GBV [gender-based violence] survivor because of what happened with my parents. I was supposed to speak at a government event late last year, but they said I should not speak because I am reputational damage,” she said.
Thobejane said that even though she has not permanently relocated from South Africa, Morolong’s accusations have cost her job opportunities. She also said that she is not getting called for casting because she is “the biggest sl**t in South Africa”, adding that it is reputational damage.
Thobejane said that she thinks someone has given Morolong money to tarnish her name because she has served her with documents to cease from talking about her, but she never stops. Morolong was not immediately available to comment.
