From star to pastor: Muvhango actress turns to God

2014-07-15 07:00


Muvhango actress Maumela Mahuwa is not only a God fearing woman, she preaches about him every weekend. Now there are reports that she might turn her back on her acting career to become a pastor.

According to the Sunday Sun, Maumela, who plays the role of Susan on the hit soapie Muvhango, has been preaching on weekends as part of an outreach ministry she runs in rural villages. A recent invitation to preach as a guest pastor at a church in Limpopo has created questions over how long she can balance a career in acting with a career in preaching.

The pastor of the church in Limpopo where Maumela preached told the Sunday Sun that Maumela took over the pastor role at the church last Sunday. "She has been operating her ministry for quite some time and is dedicated to the work of God" he told the paper. "We normally invite her through her outreach  ministry, Omega Ministries, to come and administer to our congregation".

Apparently Muvhango bosses are aware and even supportive of the actresses weekend hobby but are concerned that if it gets any more serious it may distract from her acting.
