Lingashoni story dynamics

Veteran actor Patrick Mofokeng as lead actor. He plays Mandla Cele a poverty-stricken farm worker who returns to his former life as a high-flying businessman after a decade-long memory loss. After witnessing a murder by a prominent politician – Joburg Mayor Robert Nondumo [Luzuko Nkqeto], monied ‘tenderpreneur’ Mandla Cele [Patrick Mofokeng] goes on the run before surviving a murder from a close family member, which led to his memory loss.

After being discovered by Seipati Moeketsi [Liteboho Molise], a farmworker and her two children, along a riverbank, Mandla starts a new life with them as Themba. Mandla weds Seipati and lives a content life on the farm, until 10 years later when an incident leads to him getting flashbacks of who he really is – Mandla Cele.

Mandla has to balance the dynamics of caring for his farm family with those of reconnecting with his children and now estranged first wife Puleng [Thuli Thabethe]. She has since started a new life with the family driver, Mandla’s ice boy Papi Zulu [Thato Molamu]. ¹
