About the Show

Stokvel is a South African television sitcom created by Roberta Durrant and Joe Mafela of Penguin Films and set in the vibrant and exciting world of stokvels, where friends meet for companionship, good times and a social way of saving money.

This much loved institution is the dynamic backdrop for the continuing activities of two stokvels in Diepkloof, Soweto. Stokvels have been a part of African culture for decades.

The series features the ongoing adventures of the young professional couple, Mojo Khumalo and his beautiful wife, Lerato, and their respective stokvels.

Mojo is the chairman of the men's stokvel, Majakathata, and Lerata is the treasurer of the women's society Sweet Harmony.

Sweet Harmony is chaired by the pastor's wife, Masechaba Moletsane. Other members include local shebeen queen, Hazel Dube and Ayanda Twala - a township tourism operator and Lerato's best friend.

There's also sweet, naïve (and rather clueless) Pinkie Serobe.

Mojo belongs to Majakathata - a stokie that has fallen on hard times. Besides himself, there are only two other regular members so the stokie account has always looked rather depressed.

This doesn't stop Mojo and his friends from constantly thinking of new ways to find new members and make more money.

Budgets Naledi is the treasurer of this group. He thinks he knows everything there is to know about finances - but the stokie's books tell a different story.

Their funds aren't helped by the fact that Biza never pays his contributions. Biza is a character found in almost every stokie - the 'baaidjievanger'. He never has money or a job and constantly finds new and more inventive ways to get other people to buy him a drink.

Stokvel is directed by Vusi Dibakwane and produced by Penguin Films under the artistic direction of Roberta Durrant and Joe Mafela. Music was compsed by Mac Mathunjwa.
