Quizzical Pictures said they’ve resolved the issue on the set of Lithapo.

“The actress is comfortable with the outcome.”

Actress Lorraine claimed she was sexually harassed by a senior actor on the set of the series. Soon after, actress and radio personality, Altovise Lawrence claimed she was harassed by the same man, on the same set. Actresses such as Florence Masebe, Rami Chuene, Masasa Mbangeni, Nokuthula Mavuso, Thando Thabethe, Thembisa Mdoda, Bonnie Mbuli, Rosie Motene and even Dumisani Mbebe took part in conversations about the issue on social media.

Housekeepers actress Thando said people should be taken seriously when they report these things. “I’m happy actors are supporting one another.”

Actress Masasa Mbangeni tweeted: “I beg you all to please not let this die down.”
