Here’s How Many Millions Actor Mangaliso Ngema Is Suing Actress Lorraine Moropa For In Defamation Lawsuit. Just when we thought the drama of his recent sexual misconduct accusations from his co-worker was left behind, it has now presented the biggest plot twist that nobody saw coming. The City Press publication has since reported on Ngema’s plan to take Lorraine Moropa to trail on account of defamation.
Last year, The Station actress Lorraine Moropa alleged that Mangaliso Ngema violated her rights in a sexual manner while they still worked together on the SABC2 drama. Not long after that, multiple other women also stood up and accused Ngema of perpetuating the same acts to them. This led to other local actors and the whole of social media turning their backs on the actor, claiming that they believe Moropa.
This resulted in the ruining of Mangaliso’s reputation as he was eventually fired from the Lithapo production by Quizzical Pictures. Ngema took to social media and tried to explain his side of the story and went on a bit of a hiatus after the accusations continued to circulate. Mangaliso recently joined the drama series Family Secrets where he plays the role of Caesar Mokoena.
The show recently revealed that a season 2 of the show is underway but fans shared their disapproval of Ngema returning to the small screen after such allegations have been made about him. Reports have now revealed that Ngema will be stepping away from his role to take care of his legal business.
Entertainment broadcaster Phil Mphela has reported that the actor is lawyering up and suing Lorraine and the production company on account of Defamation. The lawsuit was lodged last week at the Johannesburg High Court where Ngema accused Moropa of tarnishing his name and prejudicing his income. Ngema is not set on playing any games as he is reportedly suing Moropa and Quizzical Pictures for R12.5 million over the sexual misconduct lodged against him.
According to reports, the lawsuit is the reason behind Ngema’s resignation in order to allow him to attend court dates and see the lawsuit all the way to the finish. Another actor will be stepping in for Ngema, and will take over his role on the SABC1 drama series.
