Season 6

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 - a place where friends meet for companionship, good times and a social way of saving money.

Since its first broadcast in 2003, Stokvel has scored high ratings in its time slot and continues to attract a large audience to the ongoing adventures of the young professional couple, Mojo Khumalo and his beautiful wife, Lerata, 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 Dubeand Ayanda Twala - a township tourism operator and Lerata'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!

Joining Majakathata for the occasional meeting is soft-hearted rugby player, Philane. He's quick on the field, but off the field - to the dismay of the guys - he is quick to break into tears.

Highlights of Season 6 include the Khumalos coming to grips with the most recent additions to their family, the return of Biza's trouble-making uncles who persuade him to fake his own kidnapping, Hazel wondering whether her tavern is haunted and Mojo's vision of the stokvels in the future.

Ayanda meets a man who wants to turn her into his idealized version of the perfect woman, Majakathata goes on an ill-advised treasure hunt and Budgets has a growing romance with the woman of his dreams.

For the sixth season, James Ngcobo is replaced in the lead role of Mojo by Hamilton Dlamini.

Season 6 is directed by Vusi Dibakwane and OJ Moeketsi.
