Lehlohonolo Mayeza, the new Mosotho hunk on the Showmax series Outlawz, has gotten candid about his new role where he plays Leruo Ts'eole, heir of the Basotho side of the story.

The story is inspired by the American Wild West and centred around two families based on the border of KwaZulu Natal and Lesotho who fight a generational battle of stealing and protecting their cattle, sometimes violently.

Lehlohonolo Mayeza growing up in Lesotho

In an interview with Showmax, Mayeza said he understood the cattle-stealing theme of the show as he is a village boy who grew up close to the border where he was a herdsman:

"I am a rural boy from the mountainous areas of Lesotho, who is used to riding horses and donkeys for they are the only means of transport there. I grew up in rural areas, where people would steal cattle from Zulu land. I know that story and have seen it with my own eyes."
