Tinah Mnumzana is one of the most legendary actresses in the country, but she's faced some tough times in her life.
Other than the times in her life where she encountered four different sexual abuse encounters, the actress also lost her home.
The actress, who is best known for her roles in soap operas including Generations, Isidingo and Scandal!, opened up about times where things got so tough that she lost her home to repossession.
In an interview with DRUM magazine, the actress and poet talked about the home she bought in 2003, and how she lost it just two years after that.
"I was only able to pay for the house until 2005. Around the time a pastor told me to stop running away from my calling as a priest because it would create problems", she told the media outlet.
However, although she lost her home, Mnumzana made it clear to the magazine that she's no longer suffering financially, adding she's now stable.
According to the actress, she now turned her focus on her career as an actress and a religious leader- where she'd be able to help other people who go through similar ordeals.
