Hot off the heels of its two popular drama series, "Is'Thunzi" and "iNumber Number", Mzansi Magic is on standby to bring you "The Imposter" this Sunday, October 8.

Created by Ferguson Films, the series follows the lives of twin sisters, Mantwa and Matshepo Tau, who find themselves at war as a consequence of a moment that changed their lives. One of the sisters breaks out of prison after spending 17 years there and takes over the wonderful life of her identical twin, who was responsible for her incarceration.
