The SABC1 drama series Good Men will star well-known actors such as Entle Mbali Mlotshwa, Thabo Malema, Dumisani Mbebe, Pallance Dladla, Marcus Mabusela, Zikhona Sodlaka, Sparky Xulu, Cedric Fourie, Lebogang Motaung, and Lihle Ngubo.   

SABC1 production team says Good Men is about two men (Zola and Jama) from different backgrounds, who come into direct opposition and a stark contrast from Fourways to Cosmo City to the courts. It will start on 4 September on Sundays according to Sowetan.   

“Zola [played by Tabile Tau], a 17-year-old and a math genius with a temper is accused of murder in his matric year. On the other side is a brilliant ruthless, materialistic criminal lawyer Jama, whose life takes a drastic turn when he must take on a pro-bono case. The lawyer is played by Pallance Dladla.”  

“An integral piece of the puzzle in the story is Gugu Mbuyaze, a young girl with a potentially bright future and a big heart. Gugu connected to Zola, a light force in his life, but also a sign of how society keeps turning a blind eye. Gugu and Zola’s whirlwind romance is cut short by death, and a trial takes place to uncover hidden truths and expose the killer.”  

“Viewers will experience the cross-section of real life, from elite to underclass. Both men meet at a threatening point in their lives, each desperately wanting to save themselves.”  


The SAFTA nominated actor Thabo Malema, who played Captain Bohang on etv’s Scandal! revealed in an interview with Drum Magazine that he had a great time playing Bohang.   

Scandal! was one of the best things to have ever happened to me in my career. I had been trying to get into soapies until Scandal! happened,” he says.   

His character trended for several months on social media as he gave the character his all, especially in light of gender-based violence wreaking havoc in society.  

He was abusive towards his ex-girlfriend Seipati, played by Nolo Seabi on the show and some viewers of the show did not take kindly to his character, and even threatened to boycott the soapie.
