Muvhango to be filmed in Thohoyandou


Muvhango, SABC2’s most-watched programme – with an average of 5.8 million viewers per episode – looks set to be filmed and produced in Thohoyandou in Limpopo on the orders of SABC boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

As Muvhango’s current contract is up for renewal in August, Word of Mouth Productions, which produces the Venda soap in Johannesburg, may have move to Thohoyandou then.

Motsoeneng met the VhaVenda king Toni Mphephu Ramabulana at the royal palace last month. Ramabulana expressed his support for SABC’s 90% local content policy.
