Tumelo was a current affairs host on "Sunday Live", before leaving South Africa to join the news channel Russia Today TV as the channel's International news correspondent in Europe.
Tumelo says her experience in Russia has been nothing short of educational and that it has pushed her to look at everything with a global perspective. "I'm looking forward to investing back in my country while still collaborating with global broadcasters."
Mothotoane, who has also acted as news anchor on SABC News and host of One Day Leader, took to social media to announce the exciting news of her return to our home screens. Her journey started on Soweto TV as on a show called "Sistas", she spent three years on this young woman empowerment show with the aim to embrace all young women's voice.
We have no doubt that she will bring back a wealth of knowledge and an overall new perspective to the South African audience from her time in Europe.
