Muvhango actor now a presenter

HE IS known to many television viewers as James Motsamai on SABC2 soapie Muvhango, and now Dingaan Mokebe will also be seen presenting the channel's consumer rights show Speak Out, whose new season started last night.

Actor Mokebe feels that the consumer investigative show, which airs on Thursday evenings, will introduce him to a new market.

"I have worked hard to get where I am today and I am grateful for all the opportunities in my life," Mokebe told Sowetan yesterday.

"Though this is a show where I will be confronting alleged fraudsters and conmen, I am ready for the challenge."

Mokebe says people have the misconception that the show is about exposing wrongdoing, but says it also about making wrongdoers take responsibility for their actions and rectifying them.

"I know fully well that not everyone will be welcoming to our camera crew," Mokebe stated.

"We might be chased away, but I am ready for this," he said.

Mokebe says he is grateful that he can work on his acting and presenting at the same time.

He was previously accused by the mother of his daughter, fellow actress Tsholo Monedi, of failing to maintain their child.

He in turn accused her of not allowing him to visit the child.

South African Broadcasting Corporation publicist Lebo Malete said this week that previous Speak Out presenters, Vuyelwa Booi and Duncan Senye, are venturing into other projects. -
