Celeb Twitter Round-Up: Shoki Mmola is Leaving “Skeem Saam”
“Skeem Saam” is saying goodbye (again) to a familiar face, and fans are either all up in their feelings or unbothered by this turn of events.
See, it all started when SABC tweeted this out on Thursday, 30 June, about actress Shoki Mmola, who has been playing hospital receptionist Celia Magongwa on the show for ten years:
Mmola herself followed up with a confirmation message on Instagram:
Fans greeted the news with a smorgasbord of emotions, starting with disbelief and sadness:
Some lamented the loss of yet another castmate, in particular actress Lesego Marakalla (Rachel Kunutu), who left the show last year:
Many were worried about what her departure means for the current storylines (Celia’s husband is at odds with Mr Kgoma over her husband Alfred’s condition, whose eyesight is lost after a prank goes wrong), as well as the other characters (and their actors in turn):
A few people joked about Celia’s disappearance, saying that her receptionist job was now up for grabs:
Others just got plain mean:
A couple of peeps seemingly missed the point:
Ultimately, @Tsholofelo_le had this to say about the show:
Whatever the case may be, we wish Mmola all the best of luck in her future endeavours!
