Mzansi media personality Dineo Moeketsi has been in the industry for several years and dabbles in acting, television presenting, and entrepreneurship. Every time she showcases her artistry, the actress never ceases to amaze her fans.
The Estate viewers will be sad to learn that reports have emerged that she has parted ways with the show after portraying the character of Mmakoena Molefe for two seasons.
Dineo joined the show in 2021 but sadly her journey has reached an end. According to entertainment commentator Phil Mphela, the actress will not be part of the third season of the show which starts today. It is unclear why the actress is exiting the show.
Avid viewers took to the comments section to react to the shocking news. @Bbygalrea wrote “I wonder how will they write her off because season one finale she was confronted by angry protesters…
@BMKekana “Ag no I was really enjoying her in this character. We will miss her.”
@HellomissSammie “Oh no why is she leaving . I was enjoying her and her on screen husband.”
The Estate will introduce new characters this evening and they are the Nobengela Family. Dumisani Mbebe will play Melisizwe, the patriarch in the Nobengela household. He is a businessman and political fixer associated with Castro Kamanga.

Lerato Mvelase plays Melisiwe’s wife, Noxolo, an interior design business owner. Melisiwe and Noxolo relocate to Johannesburg with their children, Gcinekile (Samke Makhoba), Vukani (Siya Xaba) and Mzolisi (Anga Makubalo).
This was Dineo’s major gig after leaving The Queen in 2020. Reports emerged that the actress was fired from the show but according to IOL, The showrunner Laura Nell denied claims that the actress was axed.
“Dineo’s contract was not terminated. She is still on payroll until the end of May. Dineo was released to go and shoot her movie.
Scripts had to be rewritten to accommodate this as she was on an ‘A’ storyline. She was scheduled to return in April, but due to the lockdown, everything has changed.”

At the time, The Fergusons were making headlines constantly for allegedly firing their employees. In an Instagram live with Themba Ndaka they refuted claims that they mistreat their employees.
“This is a soap, it’s a telenovela. Characters come and go, that’s how soaps operate. It’s for the story and sometimes to introduce another story, but characters come and go.
This isn’t something exclusive to The Queen, it happens everywhere, and it happens all the time,” Connie said.
