Channel: Mzansi Wethu (DStv 163)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Drama


Drama series which begins when a woman's husband and father-in-law are murdered and she is culturally obligated to marry her brother-in-law – who also wants her dead.

The show explores the cultural practice of 'ungeno' – when a widow marries her late husband's close relative in order to stay in the family.

The series is an exploration of the lengths people go to for money and power, and how far they are willing to go in order to protect themselves.

Driven by distorted family dynamics caused by greed and obsession with money, Isibopho tells the story of Thandi Ndlovu (Zethu Dlomo), a young widow left with the Ndlovu family inheritance.

However, her life is in danger from her new husband and former brother-in-law Sgoloza (Sicelo Dlamini) and his mother, Onica (Slindile Nodangala), the matriarch who will do anything and sacrifice anyone for what she believes belongs to her family.

Will Thandi find out the truth in time about who killed her husband and father-in-law, or will she lose her own life?

While the concept of the family at war is at the heart of Isibopho, the show also takes us into the murky and dangerous worlds of fafi / mochina (a form of gambling based on dream interpretation) and rhino horn smuggling.

The series stars Zethu Dlomo, Slindile Nodangala, Sicelo Dlamini, Jerry Mofokeng, Lerato Makhetha and Dineo Lusenga.

Isibopho is Mzansi Wethu's first original drama series.
