Actress Leera Mthethwa who stars as Jakie Hlongwane in Mzansi Magic’s drama, Gomora Mzansi is a true Pretoria citizen and never shies away from an opportunity to show it off. More recently, she took to Instagram to reveal that she shops at Marabastad, a business area in the city of Tshwane.

What fascinated some fans is the fact that she was open about it. A lot of celebs look down or never admit to shopping at establishments such as ‘Lerabi’ where a lot of things are sold at more than half the price. Counterfeit products can also be found there.

She checked out some of the shops there, compared prices and ended up grabbing lunch at one of the eating spots.

A few days back, she shared a snap of herself enjoying a Stoney with a Sphatlho (bunny chow) and described it as the ultimate hero meal. She was in the township of Attridgeville in Pretoria West.

Her character, Madam Jackie has won many hearts with her authenticity and advanced Pitori slang. Leera has starred in many other shows including Generations The Legacy, Soul City and local films. The 31-year-old graduated from the University of Pretoria with honours of Bachelor of Arts In Drama & Film Studies. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Line Performance.

The star isn’t just a gifted actress, but she dabbles in many fields within the entertainment industry. She is also an MC. We’ve spotted her at many events handling the emceeing duties as well as entertaining crowds with her dance moves. Leera’s amazing voice has landed her many voice-over gigs. Chances are that you might have heard her on many ads, not knowing that it is her.
Of course, she wasn’t just going to let her good looks go to waste. The beauty also models. According to sources, she is linked with Alushi models.

Gomora is a South African telenovela that premiered at the beginning of 2020. It is set in the township of Gomora, just on the outskirts of Sandton, north of Johannesburg. It mainly follows two families, the Dlamini’s and the Molefe’s. The two share history between them – both good and bad.

The new season sees renowned actor, Israel Zulu joins the cast to shake things up. Chatting to Daily Sun a few months back, Zulu revealed that he will be causing havoc.
