Mangaliso Ngema is fighting back after sexual harassment allegations were levelled against him by a former colleague Lorraine Moropa.
According to Phil Mphela, Mangaliso Ngema wants the two parties to pay him for defamation of character which apparently resulted in a huge loss of income.
“Ngema, who played Senzo on SABC2 telenovela Lithapo, has reportedly lodged R12,5-million defamation claim against actress Lorraine Moropa and Quizzical Pictures. This follows accusations laid against him of sexual misconduct,” Phil reported.
Just last week, Mangaliso Ngema had resigned from SABC 1’s Family Secrets where he was playing a lead character by the name of Caesar Mokwena.
According to City Press, his immediate resignation will allow him to focus his time and energy on the lawsuit he opened against Lorraine for her claims of sexual harassments.
These allegations were made last year in July whilst he was acting on Lithapo with Lorraine Moropa. Defending himself, Mangaliso released a video in July last year apologizing to Lorraine.
