Hellen Motsuki was recently interviewed by Sowetan about her infamous role as Melita on the SABC 1 soapie Skeem Saam. The actress who plays the character of a gold-digging hospital receptionist said she was hit with a trolley by an elderly woman at a grocery store.

“She hit me in the heel with a trolley. When I looked at her, she said, ‘I did it purposely because you are stealing other women’s husbands. I swear if you do that to my husband, I will deal with you.’ It was only then that it hit me that she thought I was Melita.”
