Skeem Saam Actor Injured While Another Dies

A dark cloud is hanging over one of Mzansi’s most-watched show, Skeem Saam. Within the space of one week, two cast members faced misfortunes. It started with Cornet Mamabolo who acts as T-Bose getting seriously injured on the arm. As if that was not enough, we woke up to news that Letlalo Mankabidi had passed away. Skeem Saam confirmed his passing on social media.

Letlalo made his appearance on the show as John Maputla’s representative after John found out that Zamokuhle also known as Kwaito is his son.

“Rest In Eternal Peace ntate Letlalo Mankabidi Our deepest condolences go out to his beloved family,” read Skeem Saam’s post on Instagram.

Speaking on his injury, Cornet said he was recovering well.

“I am doing well; it’s nothing major. I fell down while cycling and then started to experience pain hours later. It was discovered that I had a fracture, which is why I have a cast on. Doctors say I’ll put it on for the next few weeks, but by October my arm should be healed,” he said.

The 31-year-old also revealed that he had taken a break from filming the show due to the injury.

The actor, whose character just married his long-term girlfriend Mapitsi Magongwa, said his storyline was going to be exciting in the next few days.

“The couple is going on honeymoon, and will come back to the shocking news of T’bose getting an opportunity overseas. This is going to cause a lot of back and forth between them, and the drama will test their marriage,” he said.

Cornet, who is also a family man in real life, said there were certain aspects of his personal life that he used on the show.

“On an emotional level, T’bose is very different from me. But, there are certain references I take from my personal life. I also execute my role well because of the cast and crew as they help me dig deeper emotionally.”
