The Real Reason Why Shoki Left Skeem Saam

Last year Shoki Mmola, one of the more popular stars on Skeem Saam left the drama after 10 years on the show. 
Shoki, affectionately known to millions of viewers as Celia Kunutu/Magoongwa has been part of Skeem Saam since its inception in 2011.
Shoki’s exit comes as a shock to fans of the show.
Before the shocking exit from Skeem Saam, Celia faced pressure from hospital manager Mr. Kgomo who was constantly on her case.
Her husband, Alfred Magongwa has lost his eyesight after a prank by Turfloop High’s learners including his son Mahlatse and the troublesome Paxton Kgomo went wrong.
As a result, he stayed at home trying to recover and regain his eyesight. Viewers have not seen Celia since her appearance. 
She did not give much explanation behind her sudden dissapreance but has told hospital manager Mr. Kgomo that she’s had enough.
