Actors Motlatsi Mafatshe and Karabo Magongwa, who play Molefe and Keletso in e.tv’s fashion drama House of Zwide have become viewers favourite uncle and niece duo this season.

We take a look at some of the most memorable moments between Uncle Molefe and his niece Keletso.  


Prolific actor Motlatsi Mafatshe, who was best remembered as Sechaba Moloi in Isidingo before joining House of Zwide as Molefe was a fan-favourite character on the fashion drama way before he became his nieces Keletso and Ona’s (Nefisa Mkhabela) ‘chomi’ (friend).   

Fans of the fashion drama House of Zwide raved about Mafatshe’s character Molefe from season, with some stating ‘he’s carrying the whole show’ and others calling him a comedic genius.   

We got to know the troublesome uncle in season one when he moved into his sister Rea’s (Matsepho Maleme) house in Tembisa as he was homeless and unemployed.  

Viewers relate with him as they all have a ‘Molefe’ in their families and relate to him because of his township lingo.

We saw Molefe changing from the trouble-making uncle to a reliable, loving uncle and a caring brother to Rea in season two.  

  • Fans can’t get over Molefe calling his nieces Ona and Keletso chomi (friend) as this is more a friendship nickname.   
  •  Viewers are raving about this week’s episode when Keletso thought Molefe was having sex with Dorothy when she went knocking on his door… it turned out he’s actually been helping out her father who is injured and hiding in his room and the noises she heard was from her father.   
  • #HouseofZwide also revealed that this season’s best moment was when Keletso almost shot Molefe at her father’s hideout.  

Viewers of the fashion drama believe that both actors who play the uncle and niece duo deserve to be nominated for SAFTAs as they’re bringing their A-game in every episode.
