Nomvelo Makhanya reveals shocking information about why she left Scandal.

A video of actress Nomvelo Makhanya revealing shocking “truths” about her exit from e.t.v.’s Scandal! has left fans shocked on social media.

Makhanya’s exit from Scandal! after a staggering ten years shocked fans in August. She was one of the show’s most popular performers, as viewers saw her mature into an adult.

People believed she quit the program because her partner was unhappy with her kissing another man onstage because she had not spoken about it, which she neither confirmed nor denied.

Makhanya has now chosen to speak up, and in a viral video, she reveals that she was fired from Scandal! She went on to say that the environment was so poisonous that it made her suicidal at times.

“I’ve been the one that’s been catching all the smoke … It wasn’t me guys; it wasn’t my choice. They wrote me off; that’s the truth … It was God’s plan, though. I’m going to tell you that for real.

“I’ve been praying … I’ve been wanting to leave that place … For me, it was something I had really been praying about, so when it finally happened, it really felt like God was removing me from the toxic environment. I probably would have killed myself. There was a 90% chance. That’s how toxic that place was.” Makhanya said it live on her Instagram account.

Watch the video below:

Scandal answered Nomvelo’s charges in a statement posted with TshisaLIVE on Friday, stating there was no malicious intent in terminating her character and they had no idea of their work environment being toxic.

“Etv’s Scandal production was unaware that the workplace had become a toxic environment for the actor or any actor for that matter. As a production, we’ve always communicated an “open door” policy for all our cast and crew for any matter or situation, whether it be professional or personal. To our knowledge, as a production, we’ve had a great run of 10 years with the actor Nomvelo Makhanya, and we appreciate the work she put into her character, Lindiwe Maseko-Ngema.

“The exit of the Lindiwe Maseko–Ngema character was purely dictated by story, the character had run its course on the show, and therefore, as the producers and writing team of the show, we ended the character’s journey to allow us opportunities to explore other avenues as storytellers. Ending characters is always bitter sweet for us as production especially with an actor like Nomvelo Makhanya because she grow up in the show but it also gives us opportunity for new stories for the future and new opportunities for remaining cast members.”
