This 13-part reality show is set to ignite passions, challenge conventions and captivate audiences with its enthralling exploration of love, taboo lives, and extraordinary spiritual encounters.
Building on the channel’s success of telling authentic and thought-provoking stories, KwaNjomane will showcase a unique family with an unconventional lifestyle.
Each episode will follow the lives of the Mhlongo’s, led by the Matriarch Smangele Mhlongo alongside her children and sister, who have long been stigmatised by their community due to their perceived taboo way of living.

Smangele Mhlongo, the leader of the family, is a strong and independent Gobela, whom, together with her children, embarks on a journey that explores their sexuality, their spiritual encounters and uncovers universal truths about life. Secrets, lies, reconciliation and laughter are woven into their narrative, all while they confront the complexities of their desire for love.
