Veteran actress Lydia Mokgokoloshi, known as Koko Mantsha in the popular soapie “Skeem Saam,” has been a victim of another death hoax.

This comes after @SSiTVSA reported on Friday, 9 June that the award-winning actress passed away.

@SSiTVSA reported on twitter : “R.I.P Veteran actress Lydia Mokgokoloshi is best known for her roles in Sepedi drama Bophelo ke Semphekgo and SABC1 soapie Skeem Saam as Koko.”

However, @SkeemSaam3, promptly responded to the tweet, urging for the removal of the misleading information.

@SkeemSaam3 replied: “Hi. Please remove this. This is NOT true.”


This is the second time she falls victim to a death hoax. A fake and unverified SABC 1 Facebook page also wished her dead in 2021.

Lydia Mokgokoloshi had taken a hiatus from the soapie in 2020, where she portrayed the beloved character Koko Mantsha, grandmother of Katlego Peterson.

The soapie’s spokesperson, Sumanya Mogola, said that while Mokgokoloshi continues to contribute to the show on a recurring basis, her screen time has been reduced.

“She will still be in and out of the story. She just won’t be shooting as much as she used to. 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.”

This was to ensure that the shooting schedule does not overwhelm the her as she is at a sensitive age.
