We all love to hate Masasa Mbangeni's character, Thembeka, on Scandal.
The actress, who has been on the show for years, broke our hearts after it was announced that she's leaving the soapie.
E.tv confirmed the news, adding that she will be taking a break from her role in May.
The award-winning actress will be pursuing other interests.
Masasa has assured fans that the show, even without her, will be even better. She encourgaed fans to tune in.
It won't be the same. It will be better I assure you! World class talent there! https://t.co/lgOfq0dAp3— Masasa (@MsMasasa) January 25, 2016
