“My mother played a major role in moulding me to be the woman I am today," she says. 

"Not having her around is a constant reminder that I have lost someone who was my everything. But I cherish the time I spent with her. There are so many things I wish I could share with her, but she’ll always be in my heart.”

Lerato's new role on Legacy

Even though Lerato is still grieving the loss of her mother, she has something exciting to look forward to. She has turned over a new leaf in her career and landed a new role on M-Net’s telenovela, Legacy.

She plays the role of Siyabonga Thwala’s wife.

“This role is unlike anything I’ve done before. It’s exciting to be able to do something like this. This week was my debut and I hope the audience will love the character as much as I do,” says Lerato.
