Lithapo centers majorly around Nolo, Pabi and the Hlongwane family. It begins with Nolo setting out to find his father, a man he never knew after his mother’s sudden death. A love triangle develops when he falls in love with Pabi (played by Lorraine Moropa), a young woman who also becomes involved with the head of the Hlongwane family.
The passions between Pabi and Nolo are thwarted from the start, but when Nolo finds out that everything he believed about his life had been a lie, he must choose between his father and mother, loyalty and love, good and evil.
Lithapo airs on SABC2 from Mondays to Wednesdays at 21h30
