Sjava had joined the cast of Uzalo as a “trigger-happy killer” but his contract was allegedly terminated due to a sexual assault case against him.

A report by City Press further alleged that the public broadcaster had told Uzalo producers that they had made a mistake by casting Sjava.

Acting SABC spokesperson Mmoni Seapolelo speaking to TshisaLIVE said that the actor was given a contract for a "limited storyline".

“The SABC can confirm that Sjava was on a limited storyline on Uzalo, which will conclude naturally,” she told the publication.

Following the allegations levelled against Sjava by his ex-girlfriend Lady Zamar on social media, Sjava has been dropped from several shows where he was set to perform.

He has remained mum on the allegations since releasing a statement where he let know the matter is with the courts.
