The first of its kind in South Africa, this popular 26-part drama is set in South Africa’s real-life parliament and creates a fine weave between a family’s personal life and their political playground. 90 Plein Street follows the personal and political intrigues swirling around Dineo Nkgatho (Warona Seane and season 4-5 Thembi Mtshali), an ANC MP trying to balance her private life, the demands of a broken family, and her party loyalty. She goes onto become the President of South Africa after a plane crash that kills the president at the end of Season 3. During Season 4 and 5, we meet her as the President of South Africa and she has to face many dramas to ensure that she keeps her position and is not kicked out by a group of hungry politicians.
