Sophie’s journey to fame began when she portrayed Queen Moroka in Generations. However, her acting career extends beyond that, including roles in shows like Yizo Yizo and Soul City. She was initially married to Themba Ndaba, the father of her children, and later tied the knot with another man.
Themba gained fame through the TV show The Queen, where he played the role of Brutus. Their marriage lasted nearly a decade before coming to an end.
Sophie then found love with Bishop Keith Harrington, but their marriage faced challenges just months after the wedding. Reports suggested they split due to concerns for her safety after Bishop accused her of infidelity, leading to mutual protection orders. Bishop, who had remarried, later acknowledged that their previous marriage had its issues but emphasized the presence of dishonesty.
After leaving Generations, Sophie returned to the spotlight and wed businessman Max Lichaba. Their relationship initially appeared promising, especially as Sophie struggled with a health condition affecting her weight. However, they ultimately parted ways amid allegations of abuse.
Following her split from Max, Sophie was rumored to be in a relationship with a pastor from Bushiri’s Church for several months, hinting at her renewed happiness. This development may also suggest a potential future marriage, given their shared Christian faith.

Jeff Bezos vs Elon Musk: Amazon Shareholder Snubs SpaceX as Alleged Personal Rivalry Continues
Amazon Accused of Purposefully Snubbing SpaceX
Complaint Filed by Cleveland Bakers and Teamsters Pension Fund
The Cleveland Bakers and Teamsters Pension Fund (CB&T) filed a complaint on behalf of Amazon shareholders, alleging that Amazon disregarded SpaceX when granting satellite launch contracts due to a longstanding animosity between Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk.
Background on Amazon’s Launch Contracts
Amazon signed launch contracts with United Launch Alliance (ULA), Arianespace, and Blue Origin, worth $7.4 billion through 2028, with $2.7 billion allocated for Blue Origin.
CB&T’s Lawsuit Claims
CB&T’s lawsuit argues that Amazon’s executive chair, Jeff Bezos, and CEO Andy Jassy, along with board members, broke their fiduciary obligations by excluding SpaceX from the procurement process for Project Kuiper mission contracts.
Alleged Personal Rivalry
The lawsuit claims that Bezos’ personal rivalry with Elon Musk was the primary reason for excluding SpaceX, despite it being a prominent and affordable launch provider.
Amazon denied the accusations, stating that they look forward to proving the charges “are completely without merit through the legal process.”
Project Kuiper vs. Starlink
Project Kuiper aims to provide broadband internet connectivity with over 3,000 satellites, challenging SpaceX’s Starlink project. Amazon plans to start satellite mass manufacturing later in 2023, with beta testing for commercial clients in 2024.
The pension fund filed the lawsuit in Delaware’s Court of Chancery.
