Kowethu

SABC1 Mon­days, 8.30pm

We’re happy to learn that for­mer Gen­er­a­tions stars Atandwa Kani and Thato Molamu have found a home on SABC1’s hard-hit­ting new drama se­ries Kowethu, which will re­place the tired and unin­spir­ing Mfolozi Street.

The show looks at hard­ships and ro­mances in a bustling town­ship called Kowethu.

When a tyre bursts, a bakkie crashes into a road­side hair salon. The driver tries to avoid the mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who are bay­ing for his blood. He sets off, leav­ing his pas­sen­gers be­hind. They dis­ap­pear when the cops ar­rive at the scene and end up set­tling in the town­ship of Kowethu. Choos­ing to stay comes with its own chal­lenges and per­ils, and leaves th­ese strangers, and the town, for­ever changed.

Kani will play Dr Sibu Mahlangu, while Molamu will play Musa, an abu­sive boyfriend.

The cast is a good mix of new and old act­ing tal­ents, and in­cludes Thando Tha­bethe, War­ren Masemola, Yule Ma­siteng and Vatiswa Ndara. This will hope­fully be a re­fresh­ing new show on SABC1.
