Muvhango actress, Angela Atlang, has expressed shock following rumours in her home country, Botswana that she’s a prostitute due to the role she plays as Motsamai.
The actress who is known to be a born-again Christian has indicated her role having the character of a seductive but hard and gritty woman who plies her trade as a club prostitute has triggered calls from her church members in Botswana saying she’s in South Africa engaging in prostitution.
She made her debut on SABC soapie in August as the estranged sibling of James Motsamai which was played by Dingaan Mokebe Kakhumalo.
Atlang however emphasized that some people even went on social media to attack her and she’s amused about that.
She said, “I am shocked that people are thinking that this is my real life. I am not an s.e.x worker, I am just doing my work”
According to her, people need to be educated about prostitution as it’s also a job for some people because the stigma is very deep.
