Hlengiwe: “abducted by the ancestors”
Lindiwe’s cover-up is going to send Hlengiwe screaming through the streets…
As a sangoma, Hlengiwe (Gugu Gumede) stands between worlds. But aside from being the communicating link between the spirit world of the ancestors and the world of the here and now, she stands between two other worlds in Uzalo. And following the DNA test drama on Wednesday 9 December, Hlengiwe is becoming more certain by the day that there’s something deeply wrong with the Mdletshe and Xulu clans, both of whom she has longstanding relationships with.
On Monday 30 November, Lindiwe (Dawn Thandeka King) demanded proof from Hlengiwe for her claims that Lindiwe’s son Mxolisi (Naymaps Maphalala) isn’t a Xulu. She should be careful what she asks for! On Tuesday 8 December, when Lindiwe doesn’t listen to the ancestors, she’s sent the same message in the physical world in the form of a DNA test. It’s a different message by Wednesday 9 December though, when Lindiwe shows her husband Muzi (Mpumelelo Bhulose) the test results: she’s tampered with them to prove that Mxolisi is his son! Her attempts to hide the secret are going to lead to chaos, so we asked Gugu to look into the future for us…

Sangoma Hlengiwe is deeply troubled.
