The new drama series Mamello starts on SABC2 on Wednesday, 12 August at 21:30. Keneilwe (Tsholo Mashaba) and Patrick (Jude Tshisevhe) are drawn together, not only by their love, but also by their common vision for the school, their idealism, and their passion for the school and for the students.
They are teachers who love teaching. Together, through the series, they face numerous challenges in the school ranging from a basic lack of resources, under-qualified teachers and an ever-changing curriculum to child-headed households, drugs and gangs to rape, a viral sex video and teenage pregnancies.
The drama was shot on various locations in the Gauteng area to ensure that its’ look is as authentic as possible.
This is a family drama that aims to encourage parent, children and communities to be open and honest about their challenges and also seek solutions together and we hope the South African audience welcomes and relates to it on all levels.
Mamello also stars Lebohang Motaung as Kotsi; Lehabo Bereng as Kamo; and Refilwe Madumo as Dorah. It is produced by Endemol South Africa.
The new season of Mamello airs from Wednesday, 12 August at 21:30 on SABC2.
