Back in the day presenter and actress Chichi Letswalo was the Bonang Matheba of her era, and now in 2017 the stellar actress makes her TV return.

Remember way back in 2007 she left South Africa and went to New York where she studied at a performing arts school and returned to South Africa five years later.

She’s been doing small roles in between since her return, but this time she’s going big with her latest role being in Isithembiso playing the character of Claudia Kunene.

As Claudia Kunene, she takes her most challenging role yet. The wife of Banzi, she is a bird in a gilded cage who yearns to be free. She regrets leaving the unassuming Kero for the flashier Banzi, and wants her daughter to learn independence instead of relying on a man.
