Sarah is hired by Pastor Abiola, played by Anthony Oseyemi, to work at the church. She enters Vosloorus with an agenda that will leave a devastating wake of death in her path for revenge. Sarah befriends Mary’s righthand man and son Gabriel (Bohang Moeko) and Mam Lili, House of Grace (HOG) helper played by actress (Charmaine Mtinta), to get more information and stir trouble in the Ndlovu household.
“I am excited to offer an interpretation to an African female character who could easily be lost in the cracks of society,” says Moshidi Motshegwa. “I hope the character opens up a conversation that is often difficult to have around the experiences of women, violence and the ramifications of trauma.”
