Actress Lerato Nxumalo has joined the cast of e.tv’s Scandal! as Phakamile Mdletshe, a determined and resolute young woman who will go to great lengths to support her siblings.
The announcement was made by Nxumalo on her social media accounts, as well as Scandal IG page.
She is known for her roles as Dr Luthuli in Durban Gen and Mpumi Cele in Lingashoni, and there’s no doubt that her career will continue to grow within this industry.
Nxumalo’s addition to the show follows the return of fan-favorite Litlhonolofatso Litlhakanyane, who plays Tebello. Tebello’s character has experienced various lifestyles, having moved from an abusive shack to a hotel in Newtown and currently residing with his grandfather in Soweto.
“Happy to announce that tonight I make my debut on @officialetvscandal as PHAKAMILE MDLETSHE , she’s fiery, she’s strong and will stop at nothing to provide for her siblings ❤️” Lerato Nxumalo shared this on her Instagram.
Back in December 2022, the actress had a BBL, and she shared her journey on social media. In South Africa, within the influencer and celebrity space, a BBL is a very popular procedure that many have had, including Kwa Mamkhize, Kefile Mabote, Sithelo Shozi, Eva Modika and Inno Morolong, and probably many others.
Scandal lovers will welcome this new addition to the production, as it’s deemed to spice up the storyline.
