Mzansi Magic’s popular mini-series 20-20 Orlando East is back for a brand new 5 part mini-series on Tuesdays from 1 January to 29 January.

Mankoko and Arthur

Set in Orlando, the series follows a life-changing journey of Pitso Mohomane – a man who fathered four children in his youth, but never witnessed a baby’s first steps. He gets a rude awakening when Thulani Dlamini impregnates his wife and demands to play an active role in the child’s upbringing.

Malobane Mbatha as Mokgadi

Haunted by his past mistakes, Pitso sets out on a long journey to find his children. His sudden appearance disrupts relationships, opens old wounds and changes lives forever.

The new season of 20-20 Orlando East sees the return of accomplished television veteran Motshabi Tyelele to the small screen, and also features an ensemble cast which includes Arthur Molepo, Malobane Mbatha, Moshoeshoe Chabeli, Mankonko Mokhari, Bongani Madondo.

2020 Orlando East is produced by Peu Communication Solutions, with story development by head writer Winnie Serite who is a veteran in the storytelling field from radio dramas, writing for Isidingo and producing Skeem Saam among others, and television writers Phathu Makwarela (Muvhango, The Wild and Zone14 among others) and Sipho Xolisa Tshapu (former TVSA blogger, Isidingo Storyliner and New Media Coordinator for the show).

He gets a rude awakening when Thulani Dlamini impregnates his wife and demands to play an active role in the childs upbringing. I'm confused....another man impregnates his (Pitso's) wife?? WOW!

Ah, I got interrupted when he left his wife to go look for his children. So its multi part movie sort of?

I love the storyline ...
and how Makisto kind of glazes over the infidelity by simply writing "Thulani impregnates his wife ...'',

In my opinion ... If a "wife" has the inclination to go get sexed outside of a marriage ... the marriage probably died long before the act.

... but in defence of normal behavior ...

I heard that this kind of event happens quite a lot ...

How much ... I know not ... the return was "A lot more often than one's (my) fidelitous ideals"
