About the Show

The Republic is a South African television drama series which revolves around the fictitional president of South Africa - Lufuno Mulaudzi - as she fights the corruption wrought upon the country by her predecessor.

In 2009, when president Kgalema Motlanthe's term in office ended, he was replaced by President Hendrik Mbuli, whose presidency was riddled with corruption and looting of state funds.

Mbuli was fired from government, making way for the party's secretary Lufuno to take the reins as president, leading to a tense political showdown and a story of political smarts and survival.

The series starts with President Mulaudzi having spent the last two years fighting corruption and prosecuting those who benefitted from Mbuli's presidency – including Mbuli himself.

Florence Masebe stars as President Lufuno; Warren Masemola stars as Thabang Manaka, a fallen hero trying to make amends for his past mistakes; while Masasa Mbangeni is Bridget Ranaka, a posh young woman from a rich family in Soshanguve.

The Republic is produced by Tshedza Pictures. The creators, head writers and executive producers are Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon. The supervising producer for Mzansi Magic is Candice Tennant.

Original music is by Brendan Jury.
