News of his death is coming just 2 days after it was announced that legendary jazz musician Hugh Masekela had passed.
Mokwena, who stars in hit South African series “Scandal!” reportedly died after falling ill.
“The Scandal! production and cast are deeply upset because he has been on the show since episode one, which was 13 years ago. He’s the longest running actor on the show,” the Scandal! team said.
Mokwena’s family are said to be in shock, and are yet to release any other detail.
