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.
