Thathi, a spoiled princess who’s taken handouts her whole life, but that’s not all there is to her.
The award-winning Katlego Danke announced that she was deeply grateful to be part of Gomora.

Katlego Danke plays the role of Thathi, a spoiled princess who’s taken handouts her whole life, but that’s not all there is to her. Also leading in this well-made production are industry heavyweights like Connie Chiume, Themba Ndaba, Thembi Seete and Zolisa Xaluva among many others.
“Our customers are in for a real treat with Gomora,” says Nomsa Philiso, Channel Director at Mzansi Magic. “It is a refreshing new series that narrates a riveting homegrown story and features a rich tapestry of strong female characters.”
For many South Africans, it’s easy to imagine a setting where two different worlds exist side by side, and it is almost normal for one family to live lavishly while the other is barely able to make ends meet.
What is a bit more challenging to imagine however, is when an unfortunate series of events causes both families to collide in the most thrilling way – revealing a complex story of romance, social inequalities and prejudices. This is the very premise of Mzansi Magic’s fascinating new telenovela, Gomora.
For those in the know, Gomora is also the nickname of the famous and beloved Johannesburg Kasi, Alexandra. The hustle and bustle of the township and its colorful flavor is the vibrant home of the series, which explores the disparity between lower and upper-class members of our country, with the contrast between the two worlds brought to life through one of the most innovative filming styles.
This juicy new riches-to-rags telenovela premieres on Mzansi Magic (DStv 161) Monday, 30 March at 19:30.
