Yesterday on social media SABC2’s drama serie Lithapo actor Mangaliso Ngema’s image was shared following sex harassment accusations.
Fellow Lithapo actress Lorraine Moropa revealed that she had been sexually harassed by a senior cast member on set. Now she didn’t name anyone by name.
So fellow actress yesterday posted the same image of Mangaliso Ngema yesterday in support of Lorraine. Rami Chuene, Bonnie Mbuli and Thando Thabethe all posted the picture without any caption.
Quizzical Pictures who produce Lithapo also put out a statement on the 21 July 2020 that reads:
