The Tladis

Kgosi Rratladi Tladi is the wise chief of the Tladi clan. His wisdom, vision and love for the community have earned him the respect and love of his subjects. Rratladi has started to feel that his days on earth are numbered and so he’s watching his heir-apparent, Itumeleng, to see if he’ll be a worthy leader. Rratladi will shock many when he makes a radical decision about the future of the Tladi community and the future of his sons. Played by Sam Phillips.

When Itumeleng Tladi enters the dining room at Dinaledi Lodge, heads turn. All the men want to be him, and all the women want to sleep with him. He knows that he is charming and powerful and that he is on the verge of becoming the chief of his people. He has no qualms about taking over the chieftaincy from his father, Rratladi - he carries the confidence of his birthright and knows he has been groomed for the job since the day he was born. Played by Shona Ferguson.

Modise Tladi has it all worked out. He has made a real life for himself in the city. He’s a man at the top of his game - a gorgeous girlfriend, great friends and generous income. He and his group of university friends have founded a successful advertising agency: Umeme. He is without doubt one of the more eligible bachelors in Johannesburg, his easy smile, his calm self-confidence, all combine to make a very attractive package. Played by Tumisho Masha.

Mama Rose Tladi is the pillar of the community and mother to all. If you had to walk through the Tladi village and ask who was second in command, everyone would tell you that it was Mama Rose. She is a leader in the community, loved by all and deeply respected. She wishes that she had a better relationship with her son, Isaac, and feels like a failed parent where Isaac is concerned. Played by Clementine Mosimane.
Women love Isaac Tladi fiercely.  There is a long trail of broken hearts behind him. He is on a rise and is set to become the ultimate superstar ranger. He’s ambitious and wants to unseat Jack van Reenen. His ambitions will lead him down a dark path and he’ll ride this journey with reckless abandon and great flair. Played by Melusi Yeni.
