Johannesburg, 26 October 2023 – SABC1 and Peu Communications welcome actress Xolile Tshabalala to the cast of Skeem Saam as she is set to play the role of a Prosecutor in Leeto Maputla’s case. Leeto is on trial for the murder of notorious loan shark Dragon, whom he shot when he held the Patrons of Bazaruto hostage.  

Leeto tries to rally credible witnesses as his trial approaches and his freedom hangs in the balance. He stands a chance of making it out of the trial unscathed thanks to his legal eagle Advocate Moss. However, the State also possesses superior representation in the form of their Prosecutor who is determined to put Leeto behind bars for the murder of Dragon.

Xolile will make her debut on Monday 30th October 2023, and will be on-air throughout the trial.  

Viewers can expect nail biting drama as Leeto fights for his freedom.

Xolile was born in Vrede, Free State. She graduated from the National School of the Arts with honours and as well as the award for Best Overall Performer. She has starred in many television productions such as Soul City, Generations and Good Men.
