In Pictures, Where did Thabo Malema ‘Bohang’ from Scandal disappear?
South African actor Thabo Malema is a celebrated performer in his trade, and his fans love him because of his talent and craft. The actor is familiar to viewers because of how easy he makes getting into the character look. Because of this, he found himself among the most hated men last year after his role in Scandal rubbed people the wrong way.
Thabo Malema as Bohang in Scandal
Malema played Bohang, an Officer in charge at the local police station in the series. He used his position to get away with illegal things. Bohang tracked Seipati, a woman who had run away from him because of his abusive nature and relocated elsewhere. However, he found her and her son and started to threaten her life if she did not take him back. It went to the extent where he held them hostage so they did not run away and report him to the authorities.
Seipati, who had managed to attract the attention of Lerumo, a police officer, showed how scared she was of his boss, and he started investigating the matter. Bohang later got into a fight with Lerumo and was shot dead on the rooftop. Lerumo’s dad took the fall for the murder to protect his son and future daughter-in-law.
