bad blood

can­dal!’s killer as­sas­sin is out for blood! wed­nes­day 10 de­cem­ber sees dust­bin man (mothusi magano) swear to de­stroy the man re­spon­si­ble for his fa­ther neo’s (jerry mo­fo­keng) death in prison on thurs­day 20 novem­ber – his half-brother lerumo chabedi (tshepo mos­ese). or so he thinks. “in his mind, lerumo is re­spon­si­ble. but i think it’s also an ex­cuse for get­ting back at lerumo for other things,” says mothusi. “there was so much that was un­done and un­fixed and he feels cheated.” the fact that neo treated lerumo like a son and dust­bin man like trash still burns, but there’s more to this story than mere sib­ling ri­valry. the first per­son dust­bin man tar­gets isn’t lerumo – it’s his mom beatrice chabedi (ferry jele), who’s ly­ing help­less in hos­pi­tal. on fri­day 12 de­cem­ber, dust­bin man swears to lerumo that no­body lerumo loves will be safe and that he [dust­bin man] will strike out of nowhere. lerumo finds out just how deadly that threat is on wed­nes­day 17 de­cem­ber when a call to mrs chabedi is traced to dust­bin man’s phone. but mrs chabedi’s do­ing her best to hide a ter­ri­ble se­cret…

mother’s lit­tle se­cret

the truth comes out on thurs­day 18 de­cem­ber dur­ing mrs chabedi’s se­cret meet­ing with dust­bin man. years ago, an eight-year-old boy named phe­hello mokhethi found his mom’s body after she com­mit­ted sui­cide be­cause her hus­band neo had left her for his mis­tress… beatrice chabedi. and that’s all that lerumo’s mom will ad­mit, for now. but neo’s re­jec­tion didn’t just de­stroy one life. des­per­ate for love, lit­tle phe­hello trained to be­come the sort of son he thought neo would be proud of. “neo dumped him in board­ing school and left,” ex­plains mothusi. “phe­hello got a sense of what his dad was and tried to be some­thing his fa­ther would be im­pressed by. he tried to im­press this man but he had no place in the guy’s heart and he didn’t see it. the same thing that hap­pened to his mom hap­pens to him, but in­stead of im­plod­ing, he ex­plodes.”

mothusi magano played dust­bin man for a year (novem­ber 2013-novem­ber 2014) be­fore be­ing told his character’s real name, phe­hello mokhethi.

deadly moves

lerumo’s drugged on fri­day 19 de­cem­ber and wakes up on mon­day 22 de­cem­ber… with some­thing im­por­tant gone. dust­bin man tricks scorned hubby to­dani (les­ley musina) into meet­ing with his wife, an­zani (fulu mu­gov­hani), know­ing that they’ll fight on tues­day 23 de­cem­ber. and one by one, the pieces for a deadly chess game move into place as dust­bin man be­gins to play by his own rules.
