Season 6

Ga Re Dumele is a South African television sitcom created and produced by Martin Koboekae and 24 Hours Productions which revolves around an elderly couple clinging to their last child whilst trying to make their own love grow.

The primary language of the series is Setswana, with English subtitles.

Pastor Moruti Tlhong (Peter Mashigo) and his wife Esther (Mary Makhato, who passed away in 2017 after Season 5 had aired) are the town's moral watchdogs, but if it weren't for the Pastor's obsession with fashion trends and the barren Esther's obsession with Jane, you'd never know this.

As the new season gets underway, Jane and Josephine's plan to hook up Pastor with a new wife backfires when their potential candidates are either dodgy or weak, and this emboldens the men to keep Pastor single in order to continue taking advantage of him.

In the second episode, Ratau messes things up when he appoints himself Pastor when grieving Pastor Tlhong can't cope, and not to be left behind, R300 specialist Tsutsuma convinces Pastor Tlhong to undergo a cultural cleansing for widowers.

Ga Re Dumele was originally head written by Martin Koboekae, directed by Josh Rous and executive produced by Luke Rous for Rous House Productions. Koeboekae later executive produced the series with 24 Hours Productions.
