The reality-inspired fiction starred some of Mzansi’s most-talented actors such as SAFTA winners, Warren Masemola, Masasa Mbongeni, Seputla Sebogodi, and Siyabonga Thwala.

The show also starred The River actor, Hlomla Dandala, as well as, actress and DJ, Thuli Phongolo, and many more.   

Fans got hooked to the Sunday night drama in 2019 just after the first episode and are now looking forward to more action in 2022.   

The show follows South Africa’s first female president, President Lufuno Zandile Mulaudzi played by the talented, Florence Masebe.   

Lufuno is determined to end corruption, turn the country around come hell or high water.  

Actor, Warren Masemola played the role of Bridget Manaka’s (Masasa Mbongeni) husband, Thabang Manaka on the show.  

Viewers saw Thabang, a fallen hero, sacrificing his life for the people towards the end of the season to make amends for his past mistakes.  

Great stuff to look forward to in the new year. Just hope the whole season is not based on a “day’s event” last the first one
