Samkelo Ndlovu, who plays Lerato pulled a shocker when it was revealed that she too is leaving the soapie. Lerato even went as far as posting her resignation letter on social media.
Lerato went on Twitter and wrote: “Without dragging this out- I’d like to formally announce my departure from Rhythm City drama. ” she tweeted.
The actress went on to say that she and the employer were parting on a positive note as stated below.
“I encourage you to not to listen to any tabloids or rumours about my exit. I’ve had an awesome time,” she tweeted.
The last star to announce her resignation was Reneilwe, played by Amo Chidi. Reneilwe’s departure was shared on eTV channel. She herself has not said anything about the departure.
