Mabuya stated on her social media:
“This is not goodbye, this is till we meet again. I mean it’s @officialetvscandal after all.”
“Thank you for the love, support, and recognition.”
“These past four years have been magical … it was an absolute honour to play this character and to be a part of many families’ lives/homes in this country.”
“Now I have to come back more to myself and remove Boniswa because she was really part of Lusanda.”
She also told the publication that she was so involved in the character that she’d sometimes say something and notice that it was Boniswa that was speaking and not her.
