About the Show

Gomora is a South African telenovela which revolves around the the worlds of the upper- and lower-class communities of posh Sandton and neighbouring Alexandra - a crowded, hard-working township nicknamed Gomora.

An unfortunate series of events causes two families on either side of this divide to collide, revealing a complex story of romance, social inequalities and prejudices.

As the series opens, a woman manages to escape from her lowly, humble township roots and makes it big as a hotshot Sandton socialite.

A series of events leads it all to come crashing down around her and suddenly she finds herself back where she started, in the hustle and bustle of Alexandra township.

Although Alex is just down the road from her previous life, it feels like a million miles away. Before long, she finds herself at the heart of its underworld.

The beloved Johannesburg kasi is where most of the story unfolds and is an insight into the love and care of a community, despite the tough, frightening environment they often find themselves in.

Katlego Danke stars as Thathi, the trophy wife whose life takes an unexpected turn at the start of the series.

Connie Chiume plays crime boss Mam'Sonto, a woman who appears to be a loving grandmother on the outside – but underneath has a heart of steel. She pulls the strings in this community and doesn't let anyone forget it.

Thembi Seete plays Gladys, a tough social worker in Alex who is street-smart and tough, and fervently believes in uplifting the community in which she works.

Zolisa Xaluva stars as Melusi, Thathi's ex who is now married to Gladys and is the principal at the school in Alex.

Also starring is Ntobeko Sishi as Ntokozo, Gladys and Melusi's son who chooses to seek out the kind of love and appreciation he doesn't get at home, seeking affirmation from the dodgy elements and criminals in Alex.

Ama Qamata plays Buhle, a beautiful young girl who takes after her mother and is extremely popular at school.

Siya Xaba stars as Langa, the first born son of Thathi who has grown up in luxury in Sandton, with a successful father and a beautiful mother.

Siphesihle Ndaba stars as Mazet, the gorgeous and dangerous young woman who tempts Ntobeko into a life of crime.

Siyasanga Papu plays Pretty, Thathi's younger sister who has spent her whole life in her older sister's shadow and who has a tendency towards bitterness.

Sicelo Buthelezi plays Teddy, who struggles with reading and memory because his mother drank while she was pregnant with him.

Rounding out the cast is Themba Ndaba as Mbongeni, Thathi's husband who is the CEO and one of the major shareholders of CBS bank.
