Gomora S1Watch full episodes now
Picture this: a woman manages to escape from her lowly, humble township roots and makes it big as a hotshot Sandton socialite. But then, a series of events leads it all to come crashing down around her and suddenly she’s back where she started, in the hustle and bustle of Alexandra township which, although just down the road from her previous life, feels like a million miles away.
And then she finds herself at the heart of its underworld.
This is Thathi’s story. In the telenovela, she is played by Katlego Danke, while her well-to-do husband Mbongeni is played by Themba Ndaba. Connie Chiume plays Thathi’s mother Mam’Sonto, who has always done whatever she needs to do to keep food on the table for her family – even if that means breaking the law.
Meanwhile, there is a family in Alex who is trying to improve the community – Gladys is a social worker and her husband Melusi is the principal of the local high school. Their son Ntokozo is intelligent, good-looking and charming, but his life has not been easy – and he finds himself turning to criminal elements to make up for the love and acceptance he has not received from his own parents.
The first 20 episodes of Gomora are available to binge on Showmax now. New episodes will be streaming from 1 June 2020, 24 hours after the Mzansi Magic broadcast.
