It seems that ler­ato and sech­aba’s (tema se­bo­pedi and mot­latsi mafat­she) love boat is fi­nally headed to­wards smoother sail­ing. with the on-again-offa­gain cou­ple at the point where they’re able to ad­mit their feel­ings on mon­day 23 fe­bru­ary, isidingo fans will fi­nally have their favourite lovers back to­gether. but noth­ing in the deep – es­pe­cially love – is ever that straight­for­ward, as ler­ato and sech­aba will soon re­alise.

when hori­zon deep wel­comed ditsy ler­ato and schem­ing sech­aba to town in 2011, it didn’t take long be­fore they were in each other’s arms. but their bloom­ing ro­mance hit a nasty snag in oc­to­ber last year in the shape of hamil­ton (an­thony oseyemi), when the charm­ing con­man swept ler­ato off her feet. “she chose hamil­ton over sech­aba. ler­ato thought that she was fol­low­ing her dreams and she for­got to in­clude sech­aba in them,” mot­latsi says of the cou­ple’s failed love.

man up, man

some three-and-a-half months af­ter they split up, sech­aba de­cides that it’s time to make things right with ler­ato. they’ve been tip­toe­ing around each other, so sech­aba sucks it up and ad­mits that he’s still in love with her. “frankly, i think that sech­aba’s been a bit child­ish and he hasn’t wanted to ad­mit his feel­ings,” mot­latsi ex­plains. “it’s a guy code thing.” thank­fully, sech­aba breaks that code and takes a num­ber of ro­man­tic steps to show his ex how he re­ally feels. but ler­ato’s also play­ing the de­nial game, all for the sake of be­ing dif­fi­cult. tema be­lieves that this forms a big part of their on­go­ing re­la­tion­ship woes. “they both have too much pride and are too self­ish to make one an­other’s needs a pri­or­ity,” tema re­veals.
