After 21 seasons and a golden horn award for the best talk show, SABC 2 bids farewell to Motswako.
The long-running talk show, hosted by Sechaba Gqeba, returns for its final season on 25 August at 20:30.
"After 21 seasons of being a big sister and sometimes a baby sister to women in our nation, Motswako bids South Africa farewell," Motswako executive producer Carol Bouwer said in a press statement.
The SABC said Gqeba will host guests such as Penny Lebyane, Desiree Chauke, Ayanda Ncwane, Leeto Khoza, and Thabiso Sikwane, Maureen Skosana, Connie Chiume, Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng, and Sibongile Mngoma.
"At its inception, Motswako created a much-needed influential and inspirational space to actively engage a wide spectrum of issues that directly concerned South African women, such as HIV/AIDS, gender equality, rape, and gender-based violence," SABC 2 head of channel Gerhard Pretorius said.
Pretorius said the show captured a "contemporary celebration of women from all corners of our nation".
"SABC 2 is immensely proud of the road that Motswako has paved over 21 seasons. To Carol, and her amazing team of creatives and wonderful presenters, thank you for giving so many female voices a platform to be heard and seen, highlighting the plight of many while reflecting a shared unscripted reality."
