Remember Home Affairs? Take A Look At The Cast 16 Years Later

If you were old enough to be watching late night television in the mid 2000s then you definitely will remember this dram series that told a story that kept many people glued. This was arguably one of the most authentic production to come out of the country as it highlited life in the new South Africa from all aspects. You found a group of black women working at a home affairs branch while dealing with their own issues. On the other hand you'd find a disadvantaged student trying to make it at a prestigious Johannesburg university as a sports star with an alcoholic mother.

This show didn't only provide quality entertainment but it helped catapult a lot of careers and unearth talent that went on to do even bigger things. It is quite surreal to think that 16 years have already passed since the first time we saw all of these characters on our TV screens and it goes without saying that a lot has changed since then. Let's take a look at the main cast members and how they look today.

Lerato Mvelase

She played the memorable role of Katlego, the estranged daughter of Thandeka Magubane who was a career driven woman played by Nyathi Moshesh.

Nthati Moshesh

Her role as a career woman was groundbreaking, however the plot was based on her need to have a connection with her daughter after not playing a role in her upbringing.

Andrea Dondolo

Her role as Nandi who was close friend and colleague of Thandeka Magubane and a charismatic receptionist at the branch the series was based on.

Brenda Ngxoli

She played the role of a young woman from a poor background with an alcoholic mother. This was a characterany people could relate to as she struggled to keep her bursary by juggling sports and school work all with the domestic problem concerning her mother and little sister.

Vatiswa Ndara

Her role as the mother of Vuyo who was struggling with alcohol is arguably the finest piece of art we've seen on our screens. She was one of the favorite characters among fans and is the probably the most memorable.
