Less than a week af­ter ad­mit­ting her feel­ings for ex-fi­ancé Zola (Mu­todi Neshehe) at a Nar­cotics Anony­mous meet­ing, Karabo (Con­nie Fer­gu­son) de­cides to do some­thing about the sit­u­a­tion on Thurs­day 17 Septem­ber. It isn’t that out of the or­di­nary for the exes-turned-best friends to spend time alone to­gether, chat­ting about life, love and busi­ness. But when Karabo gets Zola alone this time, she tries to kiss him – and she al­most im­me­di­ately re­grets her ac­tions. “Zola re­jects her ad­vances,” re­veals Con­nie. “He was deeply hurt by Karabo us­ing co­caine again and he’s moved on with Scar­let (Lerato Moloi). He doesn’t want to go there with Karabo again.” But this doesn’t mean that he’s not feel­ing the spark or won­der­ing what it would be like to ac­tu­ally go ahead and do it. “Zola’s shocked at first be­cause he was not ex­pect­ing that from Karabo,” says Mu­todi. “He was do­ing what any friend would do, at least in his mind.”

THE GOOD GUY

“Zola is eth­i­cal and has a high stan­dard of mo­rals,” says Mu­todi of his char­ac­ter’s ac­tions. “He’s in a new re­la­tion­ship with Scar­let and he knows the dif­fer­ence be­tween right and wrong.” Which Karabo, who’s mar­ried to busi­ness­man Tau, (Ra­pu­lana Seiphemo) seem­ingly doesn’t. “Nat­u­rally she’s hurt in the mo­ment, but go­ing for­ward she de­cides to put on her big girl panties and ac­cept it for what it is,” says Con­nie. “She felt some­thing in the mo­ment and he just didn’t.”

But there’s more to it than that. Zola still be­ing up­set with Karabo for her drug re­lapse ear­lier this month is con­tribut­ing to his cur­rent be­hav­iour to­wards her. “To Zola, this is the same old thing. She messes up and wants her ‘Su­per­man’ to come and res­cue her. He wants her to grow up. She can­not be do­ing the same thing they did 30 years ago. There’s too much at stake now,” he says. “Fam­ily, kids, multi-mil­lion rand com­pa­nies and hun­dreds of em­ploy­ees and clients are all re­liant on them to do the right thing.”

Most af­fected by Karabo’s reck­less ac­tions would be Tau, who no­tices Zola’s mood chang­ing to­wards him when the two men see each other on Fri­day 18 Septem­ber. “It ac­tu­ally dawns on Zola that his ex-fiancée wasn’t just act­ing from a drug-fu­elled state of mind,” says Mu­todi. “Karabo re­ally wants to be with him and Tau was a mis­take. So Zola starts look­ing at Tau as the rea­son for Karabo’s un­hap­pi­ness.”

AT ARM’S LENGTH

The ques­tion now be­ing asked is: what is Zola go­ing to do about Karabo and how she’s feel­ing to­wards her mar­riage? Also, what’s go­ing to hap­pen to his new

Karabo wants Zola… and he may say “yes”.
