Amandla (Lun­gelo Man­dondo) was ec­static when her mom MaPhindi (Londiwe Mthembu) knocked at the door on Tues­day 15 Septem­ber. Now Amandla’s half-sis­ter Sman­gele (Sihle Ndaba) and brother Sbu (Simphiwe Ma­jozi), as well as Mas­ter­mind (Ntokozo Dlamini) are try­ing their best to stay po­lite, but they know that trou­ble’s com­ing. “MaPhindi’s un­re­li­able and MaPhindi’s a liar, but more than any­thing, MaPhindi is a hus­tler,” warns Londiwe. And she has the mother of all hus­tles up her shiny sleeve!


MaPhindi’s set to make a splash in KwaMashu. “Oh, she’s a diva, dar­ling,” laughs Londiwe. “She’s an ex-model. She did beauty pageants back in 1994, 1996, 1999… she still thinks she’s trend­ing. Back then, she had that long pony­tail. Now it’s another cen­tury and she’s still com­ing back with that. She’s got her di­a­monds and gold and she’s got cock­tail dresses. Her long nails and colour­ful lip­stick and eye­lashes. The cos­tume is re­ally [makes kiss­ing sounds]… I love it.” But that beauty doesn’t come cheaply.


MaPhindi left Mas­ter­mind and Sman­gele to raise Amandla shortly af­ter their fa­ther Maphumulo [we never see him] died. “I think she’s been gone maybe five years. Amandla was nine or ten,” ex­plains Londiwe. “She couldn’t han­dle it. She’s not used to that poor, suf­fer­ing lifestyle. She de­cided, ‘Let me just go and hus­tle. I’ll be back when things are go­ing well. Maybe I’ll come back with some moolah and take care of Maphumulo’s chil­dren and my daugh­ter too’.” But on Tues­day 22 Septem­ber, MaPhindi tells Sbu and Mas­ter­mind that she wants cus­tody of Amandla. Looks like Mama’s spot­ted her meal ticket.


MaPhindi’s true na­ture starts to re­veal it­self on Wed­nes­day 23 Septem­ber when she meets up with her part­ner in crime – Richard Davis (Zahir Bassa), the guy who ripped off the Xu­lus. And on Mon­day 28 Septem­ber, she ex­poses the iden­tity of Amandla’s real daddy: Muzi Xulu (Mpumelelo Bhu­lose)! “MaPhindi and Lindiwe (Dawn Than­deka King) used to be the best of friends,” re­veals Londiwe. “MaPhindi was sleep­ing with Muzi be­hind Lindiwe’s back.” But slick as she is, MaPhindi’s plot could all fall apart on Tues­day 29 Septem­ber…

MaPhindi’s back to
