Ma E Nyandeni (Bheki Sibiya)
Ma E is an old-school township gangster who’s built his criminal empire on the dagga trade and who’s dominated his community with street smarts, muscle and strategic generosity. These days he uses his connections and business savvy to run a (mostly) legitimate construction empire. Ma E forged a brotherhood with Tiny while they were in prison together and Ma E was making his reputation as a boxer under the name Stimela. Ma E’s mom, “Gogo” Lil (Lillian Dube), is the family’s wise keeper of secrets and the classic iron fist in a velvet glove. She is by far the most ruthless member of Ma E’s family.
