Veteran actor Lydia Mokgokoloshi is taking a break from acting after skyrocketing to fame with Skeem Saam.

The 80-year-old entertainer is renowned for her portrayal of matriarch Koko Mantsha since the soapie’s inception in 2011.

The show told Sowetan yesterday that while viewers will see less of her on-screen, Mokgokoloshi is still part of the show on a recurring basis.

Last Friday, fans were left wondering if they will ever see her character after she moved away from Turfloop in Limpopo, where the storyline is predominantly based.

It was explained in the storyline that Koko was going to her home for some peace of mind and to spend quality time with her brother Josias (Mahuma Rapetsoa).

“She will still be in and out of the story. She just won’t be shooting as much as she used to,” said Skeem Saam spokesperson Sumaya Mogola. “Our shooting schedule gets really hectic at times and we don’t want to wear her out.

“She is at a very sensitive age so she needs as much rest, care and comfort as possible.”

Mogola clarified that the decision for Mokgokoloshi’s sabbatical was taken before the Covid-19 pandemic hit South Africa.
