About the Show

Vutha is a South African medical drama television series that explores the personal journeys of medical professionals in the South African landscape.

The drama revolves around the often challenging lives that form the backdrop of their career successes and the sometimes dishonest and dubious manner in which that success is attained.

The show takes you through their emotional tests, their adherence to society's expectations of them and their social and financial challenges.

The series attempts to serve as a mirror for post-Apartheid South Africa, unfolding within the lives of ordinary South Africans – particularly in a township environment that is not the obvious Soweto.

We journey into the multi-faceted life of the Daveyton community (affectionately known as Vutha) through the lives of the medical professionals who serve them.

Named after a fictional struggle icon who hailed from Daveyton, the Edward Dondolo Hospital is a furtive breeding ground for colourful characters, high stakes and great drama.

Beyond the world of medicine, there is a world of love, friendship, betrayal, hope, desperation, corruption, greed and crime.

As the series begins, heroic clinical manager Dr. Kgopotso Moabe rushes to save a mother giving birth on the pavement outside the hospital.

Specialist obstetrician Lungile Asumadu refuses to hand over the reins and go on maternity leave and Matron Mologadi arrives home from the UK to fix her fractured family.

Meanwhile, hospital CEO Mzwakhe is terrorised by a loan shark for outstanding debts.

Vutha was created by Ntokozo Mbuli and developed by Genna Lewis and Mahlogonolo Manchester Mahapa.

The series is produced by Clive Morris Productions with executive producers Khayelihle 'Dom' Gumede, Lala Tuku and Clive Morris. The series producer is Helen Smit.

The head writer is Sunni Faba, with storyliners Onthatile Matshidiso, Rorisang Motuba and Sizwe Fortune Zuma.

Original music is by MN Music Media and Cassa Soul.
