According to Times Live, SABC announced in a statement that the show was coming back for season 21 but this would be the last season of the show.
“At its inception, Motswako created a much needed influential and inspirational space to actively engage a wide spectrum of issues that directly concerned SA women, such as HIV/Aids, gender equality, rape and gender-biased violence. Combined with lighthearted infotainment on art, beauty and fashion, the show captured a contemporary celebration of women from all corners of our nation.
“SABC2 is immensely proud of the road that Motswako has paved over 21 seasons. To Carol and her amazing team of creatives and wonderful presenters, thank you for giving so many female voices a platform to be heard and seen, highlighting the plight of many, while reflecting a shared unscripted reality,” the report quoted Gerhard Pretorius, SABC2 head of channel, as saying.
