Myrah Molokomme is a South African actress born and bred in Limpopo. She holds a BA in Performing Arts (Writing and Performance) obtained at the University of Limpopo.
She trained for three years in theatre towards the completion of her degree at the University of Limpopo. In 2017 she featured in a stage adaptation of Lucas Mokuti’s novella ‘TSIETSI’ which was written for stage and directed by Ola-Kris Akonola. In 2018 she featured in the play ‘THE PRINCE OF SOVENGA’ which was written and directed by Ola-Kris Akinola. Myrah’s ability to act was recognized by the University of Limpopo with an award for ‘Best Actress’ in 2017.
In late 2018 she landed her first role on the local drama series Skeem Saam where she portrays the character of Ruth.
We first met Ruth at Turfloop High as a Grade 11 student who was born and living with HIV. She made the decision to disclose her HIV status to her now long-distance boyfriend, Koloi, who then accused her of deceiving him before he was better educated about the disease. After passing Grade 12 with flying colours she received a good bursary to further her studies in BSC Genetics at the University of Cape Town.
Unfortunately, after losing her bursary due to poor performance in varsity, she was forced to move back home. Thankfully, with support from people like Koloi, Mapitsi, and Principal Thobakgale, Ruth was able to claim funds that were due to her via her late parents and their GEPF benefits.
We can only hope that she can go back to Cape Town and complete her course and uses her money wisely.
