Leshole Mabitsela was played by rising star actor Thabo Mkhabela. For the first season, he has been portraying Leshole Mabitsela. However, he abruptly left the show in the middle of things, stating that he is taking a break.

However, after leaving Turfloop for a pilot position, he bowed out in style on-screen. After his on-screen father, Charles Maja, who played Big Boy Mabitsela, died after a stroke, his character became more difficult.

Skeem Saam and the actor have not confirmed his departure from the show, as it is only temporary and part of the storyline. However, it is rumored that he left the show because the showrunners were underpaid.
