MUVHANGO' ACTORS DEPARTURES The SABC2 soapie Muvhango lost two million viewers between December 2021 and August 2022 after fan-favourite actors Elsie Rasalanavho, MacDonald Ndou, and Sydney Ramakuwela who played the characters of Vho-Mukondeleli, KK Mulaudzi and Mulalo Mukwevho left the show.

Actress Elsie Rasalanavho, who played the role of Vho-Mukondeleli Mukwevho for 25 years exited the show in June, while actors MacDonald Ndou and Sydney Ramakuwela who played the characters of KK Mulaudzi and Mulalo Mukwevho haven't appeared on the show in January.

--

Sources from Muvhango production revealed to Daily Sun that actors MacDonald Ndou and Sydney Ramakuwela who played the roles of KK Mulaudzi and Mulalo Mukwevho for more than a decade were fired from the soapie.

Cast members were shocked to find out that those two wouldn't be returning to the show. This is because even though we don't know what happened, some actors like Mukondeleli (Elsie Rasalanavho) were given contracts that would last half the new season. But clearly, their issue was big because they didn't even get that chance.

Another source informed Daily Sun that legendary actress Elsie Rasalanavho who played fan-favourite character Vho-Mukondeleli was shocked by her exit from the show and collapsed when she was told her contract won't be renewed.

She is not happy that she's leaving and wasn't expecting it.

When she told her contract would not be renewed, she collapsed and had to be admitted to the hospital.

DROP IN VIEWERSHIP TVSA reports that the soapie earned 3.67 million viewership in December 2021, 3.9 million viewership in January 2022 when KK and Mulalo were still part of the soapie.

The soapie dropped to 1.72 million viewers in July after the departure of Mukondeleli's character and it dropped to a further 1.58 million viewers in August.

The drop could be because viewers have been complaining about the lack of direction in storylines, and constant introduction of new characters among many things.
