Leleti Joins Scandal Cast
Latest information from The Scandal Facebook page suggests that veteran actress, Leleti Khumalo who, at present, plays the role of Mazulu on Imbewu (The Seed) will be joining the aforesaid television series.
Captioning a picture of two women, one of whom was quickly identified to be Leleti despite a mask covering her face, Scandal wrote “Guess who’s joining the #etvScandal! Crew.”
It is believed that frightened to lose the top position on EN viewers first choice, Scandal is moving to recruit best actors from their contender Imbewu (The Seed).
This is despite that they have been mum about their fan-favourite exit; Hungani Ndlovu who played Romeo Medupe since Sunday World revealed that Hungani resigned from Scandal!
The channel rubbished rumours in August when the same Sunday tabloid reported that Hungani was fired from the show.
It is unclear what role Khumalo will play on Scandal and for how long. It’s also unclear this stage whether the actress will be exiting Imbewu for good or whether she’ll be staying on both shows.
Although some Scandal fans were supportive about the casting news, other’s still demanded answers about Hungani Ndlovu’s exit and were dissatisfied about Khumalo’s joining of the show.
They want Romeo Medupe to come back to the show as they find the show terribly boring without Ndlovu. Leleti Khumalo is a powerhouse and a talented actress who’s been on Broadway and has acted in award-winning films such as Yesterday and Sarafina.
Before Imbewu The Seed, the actress played a pastor’s wife in Mzansi’s number soapie; Uzalo which was created by Duma Ndlovu. Duma Ndlovu created Imbewu, Uzalo and Muvhango.
