Johannesburg - South African actress Lesego Motsepe has died, her family said on Monday.

Her body was discovered by her brother Moemise Motsepe around 11am at her home in Randburg, the family said in a statement.

She was declared dead at 1pm by paramedics. She died of natural causes.

Motsepe will be remembered for her role as Letti Matabane in the South African soapie, Isidingo.

Motsepe was part of the cast from 1998 to 2008.

She announced her HIV-positive status on World Aids day in 2011 and became an Aids ambassador.
