Skeem Saam actor leaves acting for politics


Mphoza Mashabela is a politician. The former Skeem Saam actor and president of the Limpopo artists movement is applying to be a councilor in Mokopane. 

he stated that, if elected, he would focus on providing artist-related issues and services. He said he was running as an independent candidate. 

“I am in Department 12 of Mahwelereng. I was nominated by friends who felt they could represent this church because I understood its challenges.

I was also motivated by Mmusi Maimane, the leader of the One South Africa Movement, as he supports local leaders to vote independently, ”he said. 

Mphoza said that she would focus on the basic needs of the community. 

“My church lacks basic services like health care. I will also focus on unemployment. Our youth are unemployed and it is regrettable that outsiders are favored. So I will make sure our local youth are trained and qualified enough to get jobs locally. ” 

Mphoza said that if he were elected he would contribute 50% of his salary to scholarships. “I will do this from my Mphoza and Friends Foundation. I will also focus on repairing the roads. " 

Mphoza said that he did not believe that his duties as councilor and president of the movement would clash. 

“The Movement is aware that I am in this position and I have its full support. I will also make sure that our interests as artists are taken seriously. " 

“I have always said that certain groups are under-represented and that we need people like Mphoza to fight for them. In my opinion, you cannot run the arts and culture sector if you are not an artist. "
