Liteboho completed her schooling at St. Stephen’s D High School in Mohale’s Hoek, Lesotho. She then enrolled in the National University of Lesotho in 2011 to study political science. However, during an honest SABC 2 interview, she revealed that her true aspiration was to study drama theatre and music, as she had always dreamed of becoming a superstar.

Liteboho Molise’s career took off when she landed the role of Tebogo Mukwevho on the popular soap opera Muvhango. The story of how she secured this iconic role is quite fascinating.
Liteboho initially auditioned for an older character on the show but was not chosen. However, her acting skills left a lasting impression on the casting directors. As a result, six months later, they invited her back to audition for another role, but once again, she was not successful.
Despite these challenges, Liteboho’s persistence paid off. She was eventually offered the part of Tebogo Mukwevho, a character that would become one of the most discussed figures in the soap opera. Tebogo was a complex and unpredictable character who kept viewers on their toes. Her portrayal of Tebogo was so compelling that audiences loved to hate the character.
Playing the role of Tebogo Mukwevho was a transformative experience for Liteboho. It allowed her to display her acting skills and helped her establish herself as a talented actress in the South African entertainment industry. After eight years of playing Teboho, she left the show to portray Seipati Moeketsi in Lingashoni.

Marriage and Personal Life
Liteboho Molise entered into matrimony with Thabo Twala in 2015, under a community of property regime. However, this union was not destined to last long, as it came to an abrupt end in 2016. The reason for this dissolution was a shocking revelation that Molise stumbled upon – her husband had been dishonest about his marital status. Twala had concealed the fact that he was already married to Katie and Mpho Twala, a truth that Molise was completely unaware of.
The discovery of Twala’s polygamous relationships came to light in an unexpected manner. Their luxurious car, a gift from Twala to Molise, was flaunted on social media. This display sparked a flurry of questions directed at Molise from the Twitter community, insinuating that she was a home-wrecker since Twala was still legally wedded to Kate and Mpho Twala.
To add to Molise’s bewilderment, her co-wives confirmed their ongoing marriages with Twala. They appeared to be at peace with the polygamous “is’thembu” arrangement, which left Molise feeling humiliated and embarrassed.
After grappling with this complex situation for a few years, Molise made a decisive move in 2021. She chose to divorce Thabo Twala, who had been living separately from her and their child for the preceding three years.
