Actor Atandwa Kani has spoken out against popular Mzansi Wethu break-up reality show, Seng’khathele.

The show which is hosted by Lerato Mvelase aims to give participants a platform to say, ‘It’s over’ to their significant others when they no longer wanted to be in relationships.

After watching an episode, Atandwa slammed the show for “using the distraught lives of people for entertainment,” and went on to say that the show did not offer the participants any help.

“To be honest, the show “Seng’Khathele” is problematic, using the distraught lives of people for entertainment. Where are the psychologists, social workers, helplines or therapists? They couldn’t even give that lady a tissue to wipe her tears! They watched her use her shirt ,” he wrote on his Twitter page.
