We have few days left until Mzansi Magic‘s new docu-reality, Cishe Ngafa, premieres!
The series tells the stories of survivors who escaped the clutches of death. These stories should have been obituaries, but because of their resilience, good luck and a will to survive, these people emerged triumphant and lived to tell the tale.
“Cishe Ngafa celebrates the strength of the human spirit over traumatic circumstances. In a country where crime is rife, road accidents prevalent and lifestyle medical conditions are on the rise, more than enough people find themselves staring down death in a terrifying stand-off,” says Reneilwe Sema, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
Series producer Nonhlanhla Dlamini says the tenacity of the human spirit was the driving force behind the creation of Cishe Ngafa. “These stories are about hope, regardless of circumstances and how much you’ve been gutted. Almost everyone we spoke to said they hung on because of hope and a will to live. They had children to raise and dreams they needed to realise, and these are the kind of thoughts we cling to when faced with horrific situations,” says Dlamini.
Cishe Ngafa tells authentic near-death encounter stories that will leave the viewer sustained by the human spirit’s will to survive.
Cishe Ngafa premieres on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161) on Thursday, 13 July, at 20h00.
