Muvhango Actress Bontle Sithole Written Off Without A Heads-up
Muvhango actress Bontle Sithole has allegedly received her marching orders without prior notice.
The sexy starlet who plays the character of Busi Motsamai, has been written out of the script. She joined the soapie two years ago after Omuhle Gela, who used to play Busi left the popular SABC2 soapie.
A Muvhango staffer who wants to remain anonymous said the actress found she was going to die on the show a day before.

“Busi was fired from Muvhango, we don’t know the reasons but the thing is they don’t tell actors when they are ending their roles.
“So she found out a day before her last scene that she was dying on the show.”
According to the staffer, Sithole was confused when she realised she’s been written off. Thus, she approached the production team about this but could not get any explanation.
On the contrary, Muvhango publicist Amanda Ngudle said the actress was given prior notice about the fate of her character on the show. Besides, she said the production team had a plausible reason to write her off.
“Her character was killed off for operational reasons. She is at a critical stage in her university life and we didn’t like that her schooling was being affected by her acting scheduling. So, a collective decision was made and she was made aware of it and she didn’t object to it,” Amanda said in a statement.
The actress who is also studying business management at the University of Johannesburg, shot her last scenes on the show last week.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Bontle Sithole and her management, Legends agency, are yet to comment on the matter.
There were speculations that Bontle entered the wrong side of the production team after she questioned her lack of payment December.
