Actor Peter Mashigo is back on a Ferguson Films production, shocking many especially after how the assembly house distanced themselves from the actor following a video of him assaulting a lady.

The actor in the week makes his debut on popular Mzansi Magic telenovela The Queen and it seems not most are proud of that despite the very fact that he has been on screens since the assault video went viral.

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 .”
