How far does a poor girl like dintle have to go to get a guy like mangi into bed?
is actually kind of a problem.” clearly, the girlfriend has got to go.
lustful in lingerie
dintle doesn’t have her matric certificate but she’s no ditz. she finds out how to send an untraceable email and fires off a message so utterly terrifying that ruby goes running. clueless, mangi’s convinced that ruby has forgotten his birthday, so when motsepe (bribed by dintle again) drags mangi off to the private cell again on monday 23 february, he’s not only had time to fantasize about how sexy dintle looks in her lingerie, he’s suffering the sting of rejection himself. “he sees this beautiful girl and he can’t say no. dintle’s sitting there on the bed saying (in a sing-song voice) ‘happy birthdaaay, maaangi’,” laughs mapaseka. “she tries to make things as romantic as possible so that mangi won’t realise what kind of person she is. of course she’s not in love – she’s hoping that he still has money hidden somewhere.”
but for all her cunning, there’s something that dintle hasn’t thought through. “she doesn’t know how dangerous lucas (sello maake ka ncube) is. he still has the power to destroy her, so i don’t think that she really understands the extent of what she’s getting into. she needs help; she’s crazy,” mapaseka warns. “a girl like dintle going into prison? she doesn’t even realise that her life’s in danger. she just knows about mangi; she doesn’t know how the prison community works”.
