Of interest, the news of her alleged exit from Scandal barely comes after her on-screen daughter Lindiwe Ngema’s character, Nomvelo Makhanya, bowed out of the drama series. It seems as if she will be bowing out of the drama series because of Lindiwe’s exit. Her storyline is to be discounted, according to several reports.
On Scandal starred as Zinzile and is the wife to Mlungisi. However, Mlungusi called it quits a few months ago and went on to star in another drama series. There seems to be more drama at Scandal as Mvelo recently exexposed the alleged shenanigans behind the scenes.
The actress alleged that the work environment was toxic and that she would have even taken her own life. Could Lindiwe’s allegations happen to be true? This is not the first time the drama series has been said to be toxic in recent years. Hungani Ndlovu, who starred as Romeo Medupe, dumped the drama series in the eleventh hour.

Reports have it that he had a fallout with the showrunners and was no longer in good books for various reasons, from the working environment to salary woes. Recently Nomvelo Makhanya took a swipe at the drama series in the wake of her exit. Taking it to social media, she has it that:
“I’ve been the one that’s been catching all the f*cken smoke … It wasn’t me guys, it wasn’t my choice. They wrote me off, that’s the truth … It was God’s plan though, I’m going to tell you that for real.
“I’ve been praying … I’ve been wanting to leave that place … For me it was something I had really been praying about so when it finally happened it really felt like God was removing me from the toxic environment.
However, in the mix of things, the drama series has since responded to her claims with a detailed press statement that intends to clear the air regarding her exit.
“E.tv’s Scandal production was unaware that the workplace had become a toxic environment for the actor, or any actor for that matter. As a production, we’ve always communicated an open-door policy for all our cast and crew for any matter or situation, whether professional or personal. To our knowledge, as a production, we’ve had a great run of 10 years with the actor Nomvelo Makhanya, and we appreciate the work she put in on her character as Lindiwe Maseko- Ngema.
“The exit of the Lindiwe Maseko – Ngema character was purely dictated by the story, the character had run its course on the show, and therefore as the producers and writing team of the show, we ended the character journey to allow us opportunities to explore other avenues as storytellers. Ending characters is always bittersweet for us as a production, especially with an actor like Nomvelo Makhanya because she grows up in the show but it also gives us the opportunity for new stories for the future and new opportunities for remaining cast members.” read the statement.
