Mangaliso is out for blood

Ngema sues Moropa.
Actress Lorraine Moropa accused fellow Lithapo actor Mangaliso Ngema of sexually harassing her on set last year. The production house which shoots the telenovela Quizzical pictures then terminated his contract. Ngema however is not taking this lying down, he has decided to fight to clear his name and is doing by suing Moropa and Quizzical pictures for R12.5 million.
The actor has lodged a defamation claim accusing Moropa of tarnishing his name and prejudicing his income at the Johannesburg High Court. He also did the same with the production company which he accused of unlawfully terminating his contract presuming he was guilty without doing a formal investigation into the allegations. Ngema also said the bad publicity had a negative impact on his income streams. For example he lost a R5 million investment that he had secured for him feature film Khalile. He also applied for the court to compel the two to pay him R60 000 since when his contract as terminated he still had 10 calls to do at 6rk each. About the incident which caused all this the actor said he just inspected and adjusted a very tight pair of trousers in full view of all cast and crew members and somehow this was deemed as him inappropriately touching himself and directing the action towards her.
