Themba & Niki caught in the act

Pu­leng catches her ex-lover Themba with her hus­band’s other wife Niki. Is she go­ing to tell Suffo?

TV Plus (South Africa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Af­ter his brother Suf­fo­cate (Mduduzi Mabaso) con­vinced Themba (Sphamandla Dh­ludhlu) on Mon­day 7 De­cem­ber to get a girl­friend, he tries to hook up with res­i­dent tramp Fik­ile (Keamo­getswe Mo­rake) on Wed­nes­day 9 De­cem­ber. When that doesn’t pan out – find out when, how and why be­low – Themba goes run­ning back to lov­ing sis­ter-in-law Niki (Nolo Phiri). If you think that’s bad, you haven’t seen any­thing yet… but Suffo’s other wife Pu­leng (Te­bogo Khalo) has – she walks in on them on Thurs­day 17 De­cem­ber. The kiss­ing couple’s first thought is for their safety, be­cause if Pu­leng tells toughguy Suffo, blood will be spilt. Here’s how we reach that point…

MOV­ING ON

Themba hook­ing up with Fik­ile is good news for both of Suffo’s wives. For Niki, it will al­lay any sus­pi­cions of in­fi­delity as they won’t be seen to­gether, while for Pu­leng, “She’s okay with the idea of Themba dat­ing, hop­ing that it will stop him from making moves on her,” says Te­bogo. Themba’s strug­gling to build a “re­la­tion­ship” with Fik­ile on Fri­day 11 De­cem­ber and they try to ce­ment things by hop­ping into bed on Mon­day 14 De­cem­ber. While all seems well, she goes snoop­ing through Themba’s phone on Wed­nes­day 16 De­cem­ber and finds flirty SMSes, lead­ing to a blow-out con­fronta­tion with Niki on Wed­nes­day 16 De­cem­ber, where Fik­ile lays down the law and de­mands that Niki stay away from her man.

OLD HABITS TRY HARD

But Niki does the ex­act op­po­site on Thurs­day 17 De­cem­ber by slip­ping into Themba’s bed once again. In­stead of Fik­ile bust­ing them, the pair are caught with their pants down by Pu­leng, who’s “dis­gusted, an­gry and dis­ap­pointed,” Te­bogo ex­plains. “Es­pe­cially to­wards Niki. She ex­pected bet­ter from her!” Themba’s first in­stinct is to flee be­fore Suffo gets hold of him, but Niki’s ready for war. Not that it’ll be com­ing… it seems Pu­leng’s big heart is go­ing to spare the cheaters a beat­ing. “Pu­leng’s ini­tial re­ac­tion is to tell Suffo, but af­ter a bit of think­ing, she de­cides not to tell him,” Te­bogo ex­plains. “She’s try­ing to pro­tect him from heartache.”

THE SE­CRET SLIPS OUT

That doesn’t mean Niki and Themba are in the clear, be­cause Pu­leng is­sues Niki with an ul­ti­ma­tum on Mon­day 21 De­cem­ber. “She tells Niki to break up with Themba or she will tell Suffo,” says Te­bogo. “She also in­sists that Themba move out of the town­house.” But a slip of Pu­leng’s tongue to her mom Cuba (Magi Non­inzi Wil­liams) on Tues­day 22 De­cem­ber leads to drama. “She didn’t mean to tell her mom but the se­cret was get­ting too much for her to keep. It just hap­pened,” Te­bogo says.

Smelling blood and look­ing out for her daugh­ter’s best in­ter­ests, Cuba tells Pu­leng that this is her best op­por­tu­nity to get rid of Niki for good. Suffo won’t keep a cheating wife and Pu­leng will have him all to her­self, Cuba reck­ons. Soft-hearted Pu­leng doesn’t think that hav­ing Niki gone is worth hurt­ing Suffo though. “Cuba has no choice but to lis­ten to Pu­leng,” says Te­bogo. “She’s ir­ri­tated with Pu­leng but she knows that it’s not her place to say any­thing.”

Uh-oh… Themba and Niki have been caught!

Fik­ile’s feisty na­ture kick­starts drama.

Will Suffo find out?
