TshisaLIVE reports that the Ha Molefi actor Dingaan Khumalo’s character, Ntate Molefi is a traditional and an old-fashioned man.

“I am a newly widowed father, not used to anything out of the ordinary, who believes in his laid-back lifestyle. I love kwaito music and am in love with my gusheshe [BMW 325is] that’s Ntate Molefi for you.”

“I’ve been on TV for 25 years. There were refreshing people and energy and, we had to respect people’s genders, something new which was close to me that I had to practice myself, and I’m proud of myself.”

The show also stars TJ Mokhuane, who portrays Ntate Molefi’s son, Thabang Molefi.

Thabang is a queer teenager from Pimville, Soweto, who has just lost his mother, Mam’ Linda. He is on a journey of healing and self-discovery.
