'Skeem Saam' loses over half a million viewers after Khwezi joins soap opera
'Skeem Saam' wants Khwezi gone and Tbose Maputla back. The show lost over half a million viewers between November and December.
Seem Saam has seen a decline in viewership since Tbose Maputla went on hiatus and new characters such as Khwezi and Joy appeared.

HAS KHWEZI REPLACED LELO?
#SkeemSaam misses Cornet Mamabolo's character Tbose Maputla and has complained about Samukele Mkhize's character Khwezi.
Khwezi has been called "annoying, unnatural and annoying" since she joined the educational soap opera in November.
Fans of the show don't understand his role and are confused by his story.
Khwezi started dating series villain Lehasa Maphosa out of the blue after his girlfriend Nothile (Mbali Mavimbela) left.
The actress who played Nothile reportedly took a break from the SABC1 soap opera after landing the role of Hlomu on the Showmax soap opera The Wife.
The public thinks that the relationship between Lehasa and Khwezi was rushed and forced.
viewers also compared Khwezi to Lehasa's former girlfriend: Lelo Mthiyane, played by Amanda du Pont.
Long term character loss: Those also credited Maputla with the drop in viewership and the absence of Meikie (Harriet Manamela) and Mokgadi (Pebetsi Matlaila).
Cornet Mamabolo, who has played the role of Tbose since the first season, took a break from the show in October 2021 to focus on his business.
Bose's mother on screen: Meikie Maputla was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Friday 3 December and had fewer appearances on the show.
The show grew from 5 million views in September, 4.7 million views in October, 4.2 million views in November to 3.6 million views in December, according to TVSA prime-time viewership. In total, the show lost 1.4 million viewers between September and December and 600,000 viewers between November and December.
