This is war

Barker’s back and he’s eye­ing Sibeko Gold.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - ISIDINGO -

It’s been a while since we saw barker (robert white­head) show his evil colours, but the big bad busi­ness­man’s mak­ing a come­back. with lin­coln (lin­dani nkosi) out the coun­try, barker goes af­ter sibeko gold on wed­nes­day 18 fe­bru­ary. his weapon of choice? a smear cam­paign against lin­coln sibeko.

get­ting info on africa’s most pow­er­ful min­ing mag­nate won’t be easy, so barker turns to his trusty nephew bradley (izak davel) to do the dig­ging. “barker has brad find in­crim­i­nat­ing in­for­ma­tion about lin­coln,” robert re­veals. and he’s go­ing to go public with it. “barker wants to use an in­ter­view to re­veal the dirty laun­dry that will be the down­fall of the sibekos,” robert adds. “barker al­ways finds in­for­ma­tion to tar­nish his enemies’ im­age.” but we’ll have to wait un­til later in march to see if the sibeko info is le­git­i­mate.

in the know

nikiwe and katlego (linda sokhulu and kgomotso christo­pher) quickly re­alise what barker’s up to on thurs­day 19 fe­bru­ary. “they don’t freak out,” linda makes clear. “nikiwe doesn’t be­lieve the spec­u­la­tions against lin­coln.” but it seems that katlego feels dif­fer­ently. “it feels like she knows more than she’s let­ting on,” linda hints. “she knows some­thing…”

tar­get ac­quired

re­gard­less of who knows what, by fri­day 20 fe­bru­ary, some­one makes it clear to barker that he’d bet­ter back down or face death and they send him a threat. “he gets a bul­let with his name on it,” robert says bluntly. but barker doesn’t get scared off that eas­ily, sim­ply brush­ing the threat­en­ing to­ken aside.

re­al­is­ing that their tar­get isn’t go­ing to be in­tim­i­dated, the anony­mous en­emy turns their at­ten­tion to­wards some­one close to barker. brad and palesa (pearl thusi) wake up in the mid­dle of the night on thurs­day 26 fe­bru­ary to find a masked gun­man hang­ing over their bed! a quick­think­ing brad over­pow­ers the gun­man and wres­tles him to the floor, only for the at­tacker to es­cape. barker’s clearly shaken when he finds out about the in­ci­dent on fri­day 27 fe­bru­ary and “he even con­sid­ers throw­ing in the towel, es­pe­cially now that he fears for bradley,” robert ad­mits.

brad sur­prises his un­cle though and in­sists that they push through with their plan to de­stroy the sibekos. “more than ever, he’s con­vinced that he wants to fight along­side his un­cle against the sibekos,” robert says. and by the looks of things, brad and barker will be­come a force to be reck­oned with in the months to come…

katlego and nikiwe know what barker’s up to… but one isn’t

be­ing truth­ful…
