Last week, she announced that she had lost a loved one but did not go into further details. This morning, however, she did open up a bit more about her loss. In a tweet, Amanda revealed that she lost both her mother and grandmother at the same time.

“One thing my mother always told me, is to stop posting about my problems but right now, it's hard. I want to vent! I want to understand!” Tweeted the actress.

“How can I loose my mother and grandmother at the same time? Who will I go to for comfort? For advice?” Right now Amanda doesn’t know who to turn to for comfort.  “Morena nkarabe,” she added.

One of her followers, @papaolie shared some words of comfort with Amanda. “May you get strength Amanda, this is difficult no words can make you better, and nothing makes sense at this time, all we do is pray for you and family”

We cannot begin the comprehend the hurt the actress is going through at the moment. Manku is one of the stars who joined Skeem Saam very earlier on before it became the hit soapie that it is today and is a big fan-favourite.

The current storyline sees the love triangle between Lizzy, Kwaito and Glenda get even more intense. After Kwaito decided that he wants to have Glenda as his one and only girlfriend. He’s been spending more and more time with Lizzy lately because she’s the maid of honour and Zamo is the best man. For obvious reasons, this hasn’t sat well with Glenda and she’s been acting like a jealous girlfriend lately. But then again, who wouldn’t – her partner is spending more time with the ex he broke up with just a few weeks ago and everyone knows Lizzy isn’t over Zamo.

Her mother on the show, Principal Thobakgale, is against the idea of Lizzy carrying on as Mmapitsi’s maid of honour as she doesn’t believe that she is a true friend to her. She also wants her to completely stop seeing Kwaito as she feels that her daughter can do way better.
