Mahlatse Moropo is a young South African actor born and bred in Polokwane, Limpopo. Turning 18 this year, Mahlatse is a grade 11 learner at Northern Academy Secondary School. “I love school especially because of the subjects I am currently doing. I do drama, dance, and even sports,” he says. He also expresses gratitude to be at a school where his teachers and peers are supportive of his career.
Mahlatse is an MC, choreographer, dancer, and voice-over artist. But he is best known for the character of Charles Kunutu’s son, ‘Letetswe’ on Skeem Saam. He had auditioned for the role in September 2021 and was ecstatic when he was informed that he had gotten the role. “I had received an email telling me that I bagged the role of ‘Letetswe’ and it was one of my happiest moments,” he said.
‘Letetswe’ is friendly, opinionated, and outgoing. Family is important to him and he is very protective of his cousin, Mahaltse Kunutu.
