ON Tues­day, takes a new turn when Kho­motjo is in­ter­viewed by Leanne Manas.

Kho­motjo, played by Rami Chuene on the SABC2 soapie, will be asked by Manas an an­chor on the chan­nel’s break­fast news show, about what is in store for her, fol­low­ing her ar­rest for the at­tempted mur­der of Lerumo Mo­jalefa.

su­per­bitch is pre­pared to move moun­tains to get back what be­longs to her

her house, her riches and R20-mil­lion in busi­ness in­vest­ments.

Speak­ing on the eve of the much-awaited episode, the ac­tress said Kho­motjo was pulling out all the stops to avoid go­ing to jail. She is start­ing a foun­da­tion to help the needy and will an­nounce the de­tails of the foun­da­tion dur­ing the in­ter­view.

Smooth op­er­a­tor Kho­motjo is try­ing to find a char­ac­ter wit­ness,” said Chuene.

On so­cial me­dia, there are those who sup­port her and those who are her de­trac­tors. So she is go­ing live on TV to tell the world about how she is kind-hearted and be­lieves in help­ing the poor and down­trod­den.”

Chuene said her char­ac­ter was try­ing to gar­ner pub­lic sup­port by start­ing the foun­da­tion.

She opens the in­ter­view by stat­ing that she has some­thing im­por­tant to an­nounce,” she said.

We chose be­cause it is… watched by goget­ters, busi­ness peo­ple, the BEE types and or­di­nary folk who want to be in the know about the news of the day be­fore leav­ing their homes. Ev­ery­body watches it.”

Manas said: ap­proached me, and we as a pro­gramme thought it would be fun. It’s ac­tu­ally my sec­ond cameo I have been on

as Leanne Manas as well.

I think it’s so great that the two pro­grammes on the same chan­nel are tap­ping into each other.

Kho­motjo is a very in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ter. She is in­cred­i­bly un­pre­dictable. She finds her­self in very un­likely sit­u­a­tions, even on the set. I must say, I’m kind of flat­tered in a bizarre sort of way.”

Chuene, who strug­gles to ditch her char­ac­ter when the cam­eras stop rolling, said she was cho­sen to play the role be­cause it suited her real-life char­ac­ter.

Maybe they [the pro­duc­ers] wanted to shake things up and found the right person,” said Chuene.

Kho­motjo is a high-flyer, like my­self, I be­lieve, and she dresses to kill. Since the court case started, she has not re­peated her out­fits.

All she wants is to prove that she has money to kick­start the foun­da­tion. She also wants re­venge against her arch-en­e­mies, the Mo­jale­fas, who have been cruel to her.”

Be­fore join­ing the soapie a year ago, Chuene had been off the small screen for some time. Her ca­reer was given a life­line when she got the Kho­motjo role.

By re­cruit­ing the Se­pedis­peak­ing ac­tress, the pro­duc­ers wanted to fuse in most of the ver­nac­u­lar lan­guages into the Tshiv­enda soapie to in­crease the rat­ings.
