For those in the know, Gomora is also the nickname of the famous and beloved Johannesburg Kasi, Alexandra. The hustle and bustle of the township and its colourful flavour is the vibrant home of the series, which explores the disparity between lower and upper-class members of our country.
Some of us are crawling along on the struggle bus, watching as the lucky few speed down life’s highway in their luxury cars. In a divided South Africa, the line between those two lives couldn’t be thinner than on the border between posh, swishy Sandton and the crowded, hard-working neighbouring township of Alexandra.
Premiere episodes of Gomora air on Mzansi Magic from Mondays to Fridays at 19h30.
