How far is Tshidi willing to go to keep her hubby Gadaffi away from his mistress Karishma?
Hey tvplus. Are we ever going to see Mr Sokhulu again on Generations?
– MATHAPELO, MOBISITE We are. The character is just recovering from the beating that Cosmo (Ronnie Nyakale) gave him a few weeks ago after finding out about his affair with Namhla (Thulisile Phongolo). But he’ll be back from Tuesday 2 June when he receives an alarming call from one of his students. And it isn’t Namhla…
Karishma (Tarina Patel) has been a thorn in Tshidi’s (Letoya Makhene) side since her fling with Gadaffi (Vuyo Dabula) began in March. But now it’s becoming more than just a fling and on Thursday 14 May, after crying herself to sleep over her hubby’s indiscretions the night before, Tshidi decides that it’s time to bring out the big guns in this war.
“Before Karishma, she’d never had to deal with Gadaffi cheating,” says Letoya. “It kills her. Despite their fiery relationship and what Gadaffi does to her – slapping her around and being mean – she loves him.” So off to Mama Tshidi goes on Thursday 14 May and what does Zondiwe (Abigail Kubeka) suggest? A little help from a herbalist…
“This isn’t the first time that her mom brings up the traditional healer, but this time Tshidi’s broken and finds no other way,” says Letoya. “All her other efforts have failed, so she gets the number from her mom’s friend on Thursday 14 May and makes the call.” Upon her return, Tshidi sets her plan in motion, using muti on both Karishma and Gadaffi. And it seems to work!
“Karishma becomes painfully annoying, while Gadaffi falls head over heels for Tshidi all over again,” Letoya says. Sounds like the perfect recipe to not only keep her man away from his mistress, but to get all the attention that she’s been missing while he’s been canoodling with the enemy. The only problem is that it’s working a little too well. “He becomes clingy and it all becomes a bit too much for Tshidi, so she stops using the muti,” Letoya says. But then Gadaffi returns to Karishma almost immediately and Tshidi’s back to square one by the time that Friday 15 May rolls round.
It’s not long before Tshidi devises another plan – this time using something a little less traditional to do a lot more damage. On Monday 18 May, Tshidi visits Lucy (Manaka Ranaka) and asks for a little drug-related favour: she wants to get hold of some medication that’ll dull her husband’s insatiable sex drive. “She takes away his manhood and becomes the only one who can make him feel like a man,” says Letoya. While Gadaffi suffers the humiliation of not being able to satisfy his mistress, Tshidi enjoys watching him go through this and makes him feel okay when they’re in bed together. Meanwhile, Karishma is less than pleased with the current situation.
By Thursday 21 May, Tshidi’s plan is working and while Gadaffi isn’t great in bed, at least he’s sharing just their bed. “Tshidi did research on the medication before giving it to him, so she knows it’s not permanent,” says Letoya. And she’s not done with Karishma yet. To celebrate her successful ploy, Tshidi and Zondiwe have lunch at the diner where Karishma works and complain about her service to the manager, who then fires her. Karishma later shows up at Tshidi’s doorstep that evening asking for Gadaffi’s help to get her job back. “I mean, how dare she?” says Letoya. Tshidi is fed up and when Gadaffi’s asleep, she pays Karishma a visit and that doesn’t end well…
