Muvhango leading man Lesley Musina will leave the popular show as suave businessman Ndalamo Mukwevho.

After playing the role for three years, Musina will say goodbye to the SABC 2 soapie.

“Yes actor Lesley Musina’s contract has not been renewed for the current season.  Our writers have not been able to craft a big story for him and because his is such a prominent character, it would have been shameful to just let him float through the season without a gripping storyline,” Muvhango publicist Amanda Ngudle confirmed in a statement.

Musina also confirmed his departure from the show, urging his fans to still catch him on investigative reality show Speak Out.

"Yes, I can confirm that I have left Muvhango. I have enjoyed my time on the show. Muvhango will always be home. For my fans, I will still be on Speak Out, and as far as acting is concerned, just watch the space,” Musina said.
