Scandal has fast become one of the longest-running drama soapies in South Africa. Ever since its debut on etv in 2005, it has managed to keep viewers glued to their screens with its versatile and ever-changing storylines. Many veteran actors in the industry have joined the star-studded cast over the years, and so has it opened doors to new talent and helped actors debut their careers. Scandal has announced that it is introducing a new actor, Paseka Molapo.
Today, 28 December 2021’s episode, a new face is being introduced to Scandal on etv. Paseka Molapo has taken to his Twitter to announce that he will be joining Scandal as Dintle’s cousin. In a video with a teaser from today’s episode, the actor can be seen conversing with another woman detailing how he hurt Lefa. The caption on the post gave us a look into the character he will play.
In his post, Paseka says that his character is coming to shake things up in Omphile’s life. Omphile is Lindiwe’s little sister, who has had a rough Christmas thinking her father would show up. The year has been rough on her as she went through a lot because of her family. The Ngema sisters have a thing for bad boys, as Lindiwe is married to a convict who used to dupe people out of their money. Will Paseka’s character make her fall in love with him?

On the other hand, Dintle is still following up on leads about her husband’s killer. With every lead she gets turning into toast, the last thing she needs is a family drama. How is she related to this pastor who was plotting with her cousin. With the Kubekas covering their tracks on Quinton’s death and Lindiwe and Nhamulo trying to protect their secret about how they made Ngema disappear, it’s going to be a lot of drama.
Lindiwe feels that they should give Mdala the benefit of the doubt and believe that he has forgiven Nhamulo. It’s not a secret that Lindiwe has always wanted the soft life and would do anything to chase clout. Even with many red signs her husband showed her when they were dating; she still married him because of the money and a promise of a nice life.
