Actress Sibusisiwe Kondleka is popular for playing the role of Melokuhle on Generations The Legacy. The Melokuhle character, a young women’s rights activist, is friends with Nonthle Majola – the role played by Buntu Petse. She is the poorer friend who stays with her aunt, who at one point was admitted to the hospital due to a respiratory infection from nearby mining activities.
Frequently tossed around with Nonthle, who for obvious reasons dominates their relationship. In their friendship, she is calmer and focused on her studies.
Melokuhle features on Generations The Legacy per call as a supporting act and hasn’t experienced a storyline centred on her role.
Don’t let the school uniform on Generations The Legacy fool your minds; in contrast to her onscreen age of 17 years, high school going teenager, Melokuhle is not a teen anymore. Kondleka is a 25 years old single young woman who holds an Honors degree in Public Relations and Media Communications from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
The West Bank High School former student bagged the Generations role after auditioning and failing to make the cut three times. Generations The Legacy production team selected her after three rounds of callbacks in September. She dumped her job as a Public Relations officer for a medical practice to join SABC 1 longest airing soapie, which boasts a rich cast.
When Generations came calling, I left my job as a PR officer and never looked back. It was a life-changing experience and a privilege to cast alongside seasoned actors Vusi Kunene and Rapulana Seiphemo. I grew up watching them on television, and the thought of being their workmate gave me confidence.
Having racked a role on Isithembiso, Sibusisiwe Kondleka leverages her Generations popularity to join forces with top brands as their brand ambassador. She earns a stunning R150 000 from her advertising deals per month
