Skeem Saam actress Phophi Mudau and husband Mohale Retlabala fail to pay Mashonisa


ACTRESS Phophi Mudau plays a businesswoman and co-owner of a high-end restaurant in SABC1 soapie, Skeem Saam.

But in real life, she’s allegedly nothing like the savvy character she portrays in the weekday prime-time drama. The star and her hubby, Mohale Retlabala, stand accused of running circles around an unimpressed mashonisa. And Steyn Shabalala, the mashonisa in question, wants his moolah back.

Claims Steyn: “In November, Mohale asked me to lend him some money. But I told him I didn’t know him. I also asked him if he was married and he said he was, so we went to his house.”

According to Steyn, he saw Mohale’s wife when they got to the house. According to Steyn, seeing Phophi gave him assurance the debt would be settled.
