One thing about South Africans is that they enjoy entertainment from their local television screens every single day. At certain times, many are tuned into their television screens watching the drama show that is playing at that time. One of the country’s favourite soapies that has been playing for 25 years now, and is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary since it has been broadcast on the sabc 2 channel is Muvhango.
Muvhango is a drama soapie that takes place in two provinces: Gauteng as well as Limpopo and Venda. The television soapie is initially known as a Venda drama because the majority of the cast members are Venda, and it is one of the first shows that has given representation to the beautiful Venda language, culture, and its people. The show has also been one show that has given first timers an opportunity to show their craft, and from then on, they have grown to bigger and much better platforms, but Muvhango has been a door opener for them and helped them become better performers.
Some of the actors and actresses on the show have been acting there for many, many years, some since it started, from the first day until its 25th anniversary. But while the soapie is celebrating its 25th anniversary, the sad news has been shared that a fan favourite and the views’ favourite granny will be existing.
Elsie Rasalanavho, who plays the character Mukondeleni, is sadly leaving Muvhango, and she has given thanks to the producers and her colleagues. Mama Elsie, who is a teacher by profession as well, stated that she will miss everyone she has worked with. Mukondeleni will be dearly missed on the show and for her amazing acting skills. She remembered how difficult it was at times to act during the weekend and teach during the weekdays, but she managed.
