Justice appears to have been done on the set of SABC2’s drama series Lithapo after Lorraine Moropa revealed on social media that she had experienced sexual harassment on set.
Quizzical Pictures who produce Lithapo have posted a statement today that says that the issue on the set has been resolved.
The statement reads:
“Quizzical Pictures has resolved the issue on the Lithapo set. The actress concerned is comfortable with the outcome.
We would like to thank the cast and crew for their patience.
Quizzical Pictures remains committed to creating a fair and respectful workplace for all our cast and crew.”

The statement isn’t really clear on how did they resolve the matter and users on social media were left scratching their heads as to the how?
Also the perpetrator wasn’t named by Lorriane or Quizical Pitures. Though yesterday celebs did start posting Mangaliso Ngema’s picture on social media following the sexual harassment accusations.
Well entertainment commentator Phil Mphela revealed that the actor in question is indeed Mangaliso Ngema and he has been fired from Lithapo.

Lithapo star’s contract has been terminated by Quizzical, the production company behind the SABC2 telenovela.

Perhaps Quizzical Pictures should have asked Phil to write their statement.
