Rami Chuene could not believe it when she saw that Ferguson Films had hired actor Peter Mashigo to star in The Queen. When you have been accused of abuse like Peter was, best believe peeps are going to have something to say when someone chooses to associate themselves or their brand with you.
With the current climate of femicide and gender-based violence in Mzansi, hiring someone who was previously accused of beating up a woman, is definitely not advisable. Ferguson Films be doing some questionable things these days.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Ferguson Films hired Peter to play a role in one of their most successful productions, The Queen. Announcing the news set people off and it was made known.
Just last year Peter was caught on camera getting physically abusive with his girlfriend, Ndundu Sithole. The couple seemingly had a heated argument before things escalated. The whole of Mzansi saw the clip and Peter’s name was torn apart for it.
Peter made his debut on The Queen this week, and while some were happy to see his face back on their screens, others were not. Rami was one of those that were not and she made it known.
Taking to social media Rami expressed her disgust in Ferguson Films for hiring a woman beater to star on their show. She just cannot fathom why they hired him as there are many other talented actors in Mzansi who do not beat women.
"Man (actor) beats up woman, video goes viral. Production fires man cos they are against GBV (read cornered). Jikijiki same production casts/rewards same man on another show of theirs, with a bigger role.”

One fan backed Rami up by posting a screenshot of just one of the headline that were made after the clip of Peter getting physical with his girlfriend went viral. People are not okay with this.
Speaking to Sowetan Live Mashigo's agent Brian Mauku tried to clear the air by stating that while he understands people are still upset about Peter's actions, he has apparently learnt from his mistakes.
“There are people using his name to settle old scores and possibly get him fired. Yes, he made mistakes in the past, but he has been rehabilitated for the future."
