HE WATCHED their stormy onscreen spats with rapt attention, we cried with them when they lost their son and we shouted at the TV screen when the tension between Shona Ferguson and Nthati Moshesh became too much on soapie Scandal! But now it’s time to bid Mzansi’s most troubled couple a sad farewell.

It’s been a rough ride for the characters of Shona (37) and Nthati (42) – Alex and Morongwe respectively. Long gone are the days when we were first introduced to the happy couple after Shona joined the show back in 2007. All that sweet love turned sour and they went from one vicious argument to the next. And now, with just weeks to go before Shona heads off to greener pastures, we catch up with the couple that has kept us spellbound for the past four years.There’s no trace of their on-screen animosity when we chat to them in Shona’s cosy dressing room. Instead there’s plenty of good-natured teasing that’s tinged with sadness at Shona’s impending departure on 23 March. Even so, the buff, tattooed Shona finds it hard to hide his excitement about his move to M-Net’s The Wild where he will star alongside his wife, Connie Ferguson.
