South African actress, Motsoaledi Setumo, who plays the roles of Mmabatho on The Queen Mzansi, is devastated over the sad news about the passing of her mother, Glenda Setumo.
The actress took to social media to share the tragic news with fans. She shared pics of herself and her mother.
She posted a snap of what looks like a memorial card.
Many fans and industry colleagues sent Motsoaledi messages of condolences. Here are some of the messages.

May you find some sought of comfort in knowing that death can only rob physical presence but memories and spirits live on forever. Cherish those memories and know that in your heart she'll always be there with you in you and through you.

According to ZAlebs, Motsoaledi also expressed the pain of not being able to take time off work to grieve and mourn. She wrote: “There’s a tweet where one person said she hopes I get time off work coz I lost my mother…I wanna lol that tweet. Time off where?”
Meanwhile, earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that The Queen's Motsoaledi, who plays a pregnant woman on the popular drama series, is so good that fans actually thought she was pregnant in real life. She's hit back with a response to end the rumours.
“You really pregnant, ain’t you?” - said a fan on social media. And who can blame them? We'd believe it too.
We did not see Motsoaledi's response coming though. The actress clapped back with facts and put the rumour to rest.
