TV Plus (South Africa) - - SKEEM SAAM -

itsi’s (ju­nior jiyane) ar­rival in tur­floop on wed­nes­day 19 novem­ber after liv­ing with his grand­par­ents (his mom’s dad and step-mom) in ga-mashashane is a good thing. “the ma­put­las adore pitsi, more so be­cause they thought they might lose him,” says africa tsoai, who plays grampa john. re­mem­ber the crazy lady snatch­ing tbose and mapitsi’s (cor­net mam­abolo and mo­gau moth­latswi) son last year? for weeks, mrs nkadi­meng (ferry jele) pre­tended that the baby was hers after los­ing her own child. she lied to her hubby, kids and even the po­lice, but that wasn’t enough to stop her doc, hus­band and the cops from con­nect­ing the dots.

“they’re happy that pitsi’s com­ing, but they’re stressed be­cause they need a nanny,” says africa. “this is a funny one,” says har­riet. “tbose and john keep in­sist­ing that they hire alice, a nanny who once took care of pitsi. but meikie isn’t hav­ing any of that. she’s con­vinced that alice had a crush on john and that those feel­ings were re­cip­ro­cated… so she’s firm that alice won’t get the job.” in­stead, she gets an agency to bring nan­nies for in­ter­views, un­aware that mrs nkadi­meng is one.

meikie runs out of time and be­fore she knows it, pitsi’s dropped off on thurs­day 20 novem­ber. after ex­haust­ing any and all av­enues, pitsi re­acts to a lady – mrs nkadi­meng – who comes for the job. “pitsi loves her and they in­stantly hit it off,” says har­riet. but it’s only be­cause she was the first mother he knew when she ab­ducted him a year ago. “no one recog­nises her be­cause the po­lice are the only ones who had con­tact with her.” looks like the en­emy’s re­turned…
