Gomora explores the intricacies of a traditional South African society complete with the occasional, albeit a somewhat uneven struggle between the rich and the poor in a community to gain the upper hand in a battle for natural and economic resources.
The tricks, sabotage, and outright violence displayed in the show are just a few factors that continue to draw viewers to the show every weekday. The intriguing storylines help to put the show on the same platform as shows such as Skeem Saam and Scandal.
