Lesego Motsepe, best known for her role as Letti Matabane in Isidingo, has passed away.

Isidingo star Lesego Motsepe passed away in her home in Randburg.

A statement released on behalf of Motsepe's family said she was found dead by her brother Moemise Motsepe at about 11am on Monday morning. The paramedics confirmed her death a few hours later.

In 2011, Motsepe publicly announced her HIV status on World Aids Day in a bid to help fight the stigma around people living with the disease. She conducted several workshops and talks on the importance of living with hope when affected by Aids directly or otherwise. She also worked as an Aids ambassador for many years, educating children in different communities. 

Described as a loving daughter, sister, motivational speaker and friend, Motsepe was a drama graduate who was also an actor, poet, and storyteller who spent over 10 years as part of the cast of the popular soapie.

Motsepe is survived by her mother – Ivy Skhosana and two brothers – Andile Skosana and Moemise Motsepe and numerous nieces, nephews, her spiritual family and the broader family.
