The biggest TV villainess, Thembeka Shezi is dead.
Scandal! fans were left heartbroken on Wednesday after popular character Thembeka Shezi died.
It all happened so suddenly that fans couldn't believe their eyes.
In the soapie, Shezi was shot and killed by her rival Mthunzi Mayisa, played by Inxeba (The Wound) star Bongile Mantsai.
This is Mbangeni’s second exit from the show after she left the soapie in 2016.
During her time away from scandal Mbangeni featured in dramas such as The Republic, The River, Harvest, Hard Copy, Thola and It’s Complicated.
Mbangeni took to social media to bid farewell to Shezi and her fans.
In a post on Twitter, Mbangeni said “Friend she’s really gone. Dead dead! Won’t be coming back as a ghost (they didn’t teach me how to act a ghost at Wits) let’s leave her be now. Let’s allow me an opportunity to play other amazing wonderful things or be a mom or be something other than her. It’s ok”.
Mbangeni is the second actress to exit Scandal.
She also gave fans a glimpse of life after Scandal!, hinting at taking a small break to get herself right before returning to screens.
Meanwhile, heartbroken fans flooded Twitter with tributes to Thembeka, landing the hashtag #RIPThembekaShezi on the top of the trends list.
