- Actress Nokuthula Mavuso has expressed a desire to help her mother heal from her father being murdered

- Nokuthula said she'd like to visit the house where her father was murdered and facilitate some form of healing and closure for her mom
Actress Nokuthula Mavuso's latest role has inspired her to confront ghosts and traumas of the past with her mother. The star encouraged others to help their parents and elders heal before they pass on.
She said, "Our parents were scarred (and) hardened. I hope yours do not pass on without having dealt with their hurt. That you don't have to watch their hurt eat them up as they lie on their deathbed. Watching them (and) hoping that maybe, in the next life, they find some joy."
Nokuthula said that filming in places where she could feel traumas happened has shown her that the universe "desperately wants us to heal."
In other now-deleted tweets, the star opened up about the steps she is taking on her personal journey of healing. Nokuthula spoke about how she plans to go to the house in which her father was murdered for the first time ever.
The actress also mentioned her desire to help her mother make peace with what happened by confronting it head on, telling the truth and taking control of her healing.
"Open your heart and deal. Tell the truth," she said.
Another star to have experienced and overcome trauma is Simphiwe Ngema. Her husband, actor Dumi Masilela, was murdered in a botched hijacking back in 2017. Simphiwe is now happily in a new relationship and expecting her first child.
