Clement’s Suicide Attempt
Clement’s Suicide Attempt
Skeem Saam gave viewers another hot dose of an episode yesterday. However, the last episode left fans shaken after Clement tried to commit suicide.
The show has been serving nothing but drama this year and we are here for all of it. Several dramatic events unfolded in past episodes, from Kwaito finding out that he shares a father with his best friend, Pretty, and Lehasa’s entanglement, and now Mjolo is showing Clement no mercy.
He just experienced his first heartbreak. Last week he left Turf in hopes to start a new life in Johannesburg with the love of his life, only to find out later that he is a married man.
So Tlotliso is in JHB for Engineering Expo while Clement is there for for life. Ja noh life ke spelling sa Vanderbeile Park #SkeemSaam

After finding out that Tlotliso has been lying to him, Clement had no choice but to go back home. He had lied about his reasons to leave Turf and told his family that he was going on a module trip.
As he finally arrived home, he found the whole family waiting for him to explain himself. This led to a heated exchange with his grandmother Mantuli which resulted in her fainting and being rushed to hospital after Clement reminded her that she hid his uncle’s (Kwaito) father from him for 20 years.
Clement felt guilty for sending his grandmother to the hospital and decided to end his life. However, it is not clear at this point what is going to happen to him.
Fans have since reacted to the scene, others have also given Vusi Leremi his flowers for portraying Clement’s Character so well. Here are a few reactions from Twitter.

Meanwhile, the show recently lost one of the popular actors Cornet Mamabolo. Cornet who played T’bose on the show announced a few days ago that he has decided to take a break from the show after 10 years to focus on his business.
“I think it’s important as well to reflect a bit, I mean I have been playing T’bose for ten years and you know, you do need a bit of time to debreath from the character and try to do other work,” he said on Mac G’s podcast And Chill
He first announced his exit on Instagram thanking his colleagues for the support. He wrote: “This is my official break from your screens as Tbose Maputla… thanks for all the support you have shown me over the years, I mean I literally matured to be the man I’m today before your eyes. This is a break for me to primarily focus on my insurance business, Digni Financial Services.”
