Itumeleng "Itu" Mokoena

Itumeleng “Itu” Mokoena, is Thato and Malefu’s adopted middle daughter. She was abandoned by her biological mother, Lindiwe when she was an infant. Yet, she inherited the same resilience and self-efficiency as her biological mother.  A tomboy at heart, Itu started her own business in the family’s yard where she fixes cars and taxis. She is a straight-talker who isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo. She’s smart, articulate and knows what she wants.
