Matshepo Maleme Bows Out of Drama Series ‘House of Zwide’

Matshepo Maleme, who portrayed Rea Molapo in the popular e.tv drama series House of Zwide, has officially bowed out. On the show, Rea Molapo, Isaac Molapo’s wife, was diagnosed with brain cancer. Rea is also a mother and a sister to her brother, Molefe.

Motlatsi Mafatshe, who plays Maleme’s brother Molefe, honored her departure with a heartfelt tribute. Taking to social media, Mafatshe reflected on the three years of working alongside the SA Film and Television Awards-winning actress.

“From the word go, we clicked like a house on fire. Your selflessness and giving spirit in your craft are incredible,” wrote Mafatshe. “What bliss it was to play your brother. I know I bothered you a lot, and you always found a way to work with me. There are not many real actors like you in Africa; you make realism in acting a piece of cake. I will forever cherish our time on set. See you on the next production; I have loved you a long time.”

House of Zwide premiered on July 19, 2021, replacing the long-running daily drama Rhythm City as part of e.tv’s business strategy. The show, set in the competitive fashion industry, features high drama and ruthless ambition, transporting viewers to a stylish Johannesburg family.

In addition to Matshepo Maleme, the series has introduced several new faces in the industry, such as Olwethu Mackay, Nefisa Mkhabela, Shalate Sekhabi, and Linda Nxumalo. The show also stars renowned actors Vusi Kunene, Khaya Dladla, Winnie Ntshaba, Deka Mchunu, Wanda Zuma, Paballo Mavundla, Tsholofelo Matshaba, Gaisang Noge, and Brenda Mukwevho.
