Isiphetho – Destiny The Cast


Let’s put a spotlight on the characters and who’s who in the world of Isiphetho – Destiny 

Meet our awesome foursome, Buhle, Portia, Mosa and Ntando, estranged friends who try to forge a future for themselves, but a traumatic past keeps pulling them back. 

Buhle Zondo played by Mbalenhle Mavimbela is a woman who searches for independence only to realise it’s not as easy as she thinks. She keeps striving to leave Mzimhlophe but finds herself falling in love with where she is, doing what she truly loves. 

Portia Zondo played by Tsholofelo Maseko is discovering who she truly is. We watch her struggles and triumphs as she learns to adult, to be the mother she’s always wanted to be, to make her daughter proud, and to prove to the family she is not a failure. Meanwhile, she also has to decide whether the new version of herself is still compatible with her gangster bae. 

Mosa Sono played by Kope “Tswyza” Makgae is our chef who also has a deep crush on Portia. As we journey with him, we slowly begin to realise that there’s more to Mosa than meets the eye. He is much smarter than we think and he puts on an act like a changeable chameleon to fit in wherever he goes.

Ntando Grootboom played by Upile uThixo Bongco was raised in Mzimhlophe and after moving to the rural Eastern Cape, she returns to her home town after the family of her late husband blames her for her his death. She seems to be a meek character – until she comes out of her shell.
