One of the show's most recognizable faces, Shoki Mmola, appears to be leaving the long-running serial Skeem Saam after ten years. Since its inception in 2011, Skeem Saam has featured Shoki, better known to millions of viewers as Celia Kunutu/Magoongwa.
A prank involving his son Mahlatse and the disruptive Paxton Kgomo at Turfloop High School resulted in the loss of Aflred Magongwa's eyesight.
Because of this, he has been resting and attempting to restore his vision at home. Celia has mysteriously vanished from the show as of late. She did not provide a detailed explanation for her leaving, but she did tell the hospital's manager, Mr. Kgomo, that she'd had enough.
Since Alfred blames her for the vehicle accident, he also doesn't want to interact with her. This happened after he was told to run for his life as the individuals that were hunting for him last week were reportedly sent by Mr Kgomo.
