Veteran actor Peter Mashigo has reportedly sustained injuries after being involved during a car crash that nearly took his life over the last weekend. This consistent with Sunday World who reported that the actor’s car crashed with another after he lost control of his vehicle.
The Queen actor has allegedly been involved during a car accident whilst he was on his thanks to Benoni from Pretoria. He was traveling with a gaggle of friends to attend another friend’s party when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed head-on with another. Out of the three other passengers, he was apparently the sole one who got seriously injured and was rushed to Sunshine private hospital.
“A car that was overtaking lost control and saw his car head-on,” reported the paper.
He was in a critical but stable condition and he missed a week’s worth of shooting at The Queen, who he plays Jackal Mkhondo.
Sunday World then reported that The Queen producers are faced with an enormous dilemma due to his absence. Two sources claim that the producers will give him an opportunity so he can heal. But another claim they’re going to incorporate his real-world situation into the story and use his injuries to his advantage. this may allegedly be done to “avoid further delays with production.”
His return to The Queen wasn’t welcomed with both arms as he was fired from one among The Fergusons’ productions The Throne. He was accused of assaulting a lady and he was caught on tape which went viral.
That was his second incident, as he had physically abused another woman before.
Mashigo this year had a brief stint on Gomora at the time of the video he was on The Throne which may be a Ferguson Film production.
Former The Queen actress, Rami Chuene without naming the actor took to Twitter to feature her opinion on the actor being rehired by the assembly .
“Man (actor) beats up woman, video goes viral. Production fires man cos they’re against GBV (read cornered). Jikijiki same production casts/rewards same man on another show of theirs, with a much bigger role,” tweeted Rami.
Speaking to Sowetan Live Mashigo’s agent Brian Mauku said, “There are people using his name to settle old scores and possibly get him fired. Yes, he made mistakes within the past, but he has been rehabilitated for the longer term .”
