Just as fans of popular SABC 1 soapie Skeem Saam had resigned themselves to the fact that Leshole and Kwaito had the worst luck in the world, in came Wallet. 

The hospital porter, played by Molefi Monaisa, lived that  jetset life before he went bust and got a job in Turfloop. But now, after a series of events, fans fear the character might commit suicide or disappear entirely.

Wallet has been through it all but the final straw came this week when he quit his job to enter an arts competition and wasn't even nominated.

He had the internet in tears when he told another character on the show that "some of us are born to be blue. Loss becomes a recurring theme in our lives".

It was too much for fans, who flooded social media with comments, explaining that they were worried about Wallet and angry with the show's writers for never giving him a break.

In fact, frustrated fans were grabbing their notepads and pens to start a petition to "save" Wallet from even more bad luck.
