Having a child completely changes your life, to give meaning to their life while it may seem obvious to some, and it gives new meaning to your life. After having a child you become responsible for their life and because of that, your existence takes on a whole new meaning.
Sadly Skeem Saam actress Koko Mantsha didn’t get that chance to raise and see fruitful of her womb. Koko Mantsha is an 82 year-old veteran actress born in 1939 who has appeared in many television shows including Muvhango and Bophelo ke semphego back them. She us currently playing the role of Koko Mantsha in SABC1 telenova.
Skeem saam’s Koko Mantsha whose real name is Lydia Mokgokoloshi have unpleasant life. She’s left childless after the death of her only son. She lost both her husband and her son no one deserve to be left alone without family to call “mine”.
She grew up in a big family where she had five siblings. Her father was blind and her mom was the one who took care of them all. We enjoy seeing her appearing in Skeem Saam show as mother of Charity and a grandmother of Katlego and Jojo. Her character in Skeem Saam represent her life even in real life. It relate to how she could have had chance to be a grandmother.
I also love her because if her true love that we are seeing in Skeem Saam. It gives indication that if her were still alive she would have loved her grandkids with all her heart and soul. We pour heart to her and we admire her every time we sees her in Skeem Saam.
