Best of both worlds
Karabo is determined to keep Tau as her husband and take Zola as hubby #2, but not everyone’s willing to play along.
Zola (Mutodi Neshehe) reckons that he’s been a fool for love for too long, so on Wednesday 3 February, he decides that as much as he loves Karabo (Connie Ferguson), he won’t play second fiddle to her husband Tau (Rapulana Seiphemo) and calls it quits on their engagement. “At first, Zola was so in love with Karabo that he was willing to do whatever it takes to bring them together. He wasn’t going to let this opportunity pass them by,” says Mutodi. “Now he accepts the fact that he doesn’t want to compromise by sharing her with Tau. He wants her all to himself.” But it appears that Karabo is still keen on keeping her fiancé when she makes a dramatic move to save face after Zola’s son Vuyo’s (Nkululeko Tshirumbula) social media exposé about their relationship. But will it be enough?
After a chat with his “brother” Gadaffi (Vuyo Dabula) on Friday 5 February, Tau is amped up to fight back and make sure that the divorce goes through without him having to enter into a polygamous marriage with Karabo and Zola. Meanwhile, Karabo’s preparing to set the record straight – live on national radio. On Monday 8 February, Karabo does the live interview on polyandry and why she’s chosen to go that route. “Zola’s not keen on the interview or the concept and doesn’t like the situation that Karabo’s put him in,” says Mutodi. What he doesn’t realise is that he’s in a far worse position in Gadaffi’s eyes, who’s quietly plotting a way to get rid of a preoccupied Zola, who not only slept with his “brother’s” wife, but also had the nerve to propose to her while they were still married. The reformed gangster abandons his principles and secretly plans to get Zola out of the picture – for good.
“IT’S A YES FROM US”
Meanwhile, staunchly traditional Uncle Tebogo (Joe Mafela) is coaxed by Tau into objecting to what Karabo is requesting on Thursday 11 February and for the first time, Tau and Zola are in agreement. “The men don’t like it,” says Mutodi. Tau believes that if they work together, he and Karabo’s uncle can make Karabo forget about Zola and marrying him. But they’re a little too late when, at the meeting with the elders on Friday 12 February, she begs the elders to let her go through with marrying Zola – and they give a surprising response to her request.
TERMS & CONDITIONS APPLY
After being granted her wish, Karabo meets with Tau and Zola on Tuesday 16 February to discuss the terms of the polyandry and fists almost fly as things get heated between the two men. “When it comes to the living arrangements, Zola won’t have any of it,” says Mutodi. Tau decides that Karabo should spend one week with him and the following one at Zola’s but Zola isn’t keen on the idea and throws his toys, while Tau is hopeful that his rival will soon reach the end of his tether and walk away from the whole idea. But will he?
How long are Tau and Karabo going to be a couple?
Zola’s in no mood for fun and games – he wants his woman all for himself.
