South African award-winning actress Sannah Mchunu has bid farewell to Mzansi Magic’s hit telenovela Gomora.

Earlier this week, the channel announced the show had been canceled after four seasons. In a heartfelt farewell message, Sannah, who plays Zodwa, took to social media to bid farewell to the show.

She said it’s painful to lose a job but she is optimistic that something will come up soon.

All things come to an end my friends. Let me take this opportunity to thank SERITI Production for blessing us with Gomora. We were treated very well, that’s why our performance was very great. It’s my first time working in a place where I put all my madness [and it was welcomed]. To the crew and cast from Gomora, I say ‘big things are yet to come. Gates will open. It is painful to lose work but let us stay hopeful. The Lord who took us to Gomora will carry us and put us somewhere else. My friends and followers of Gomora, thank you so much for the support you have given us. I love you,” she wrote.
