Them­beka’s time-out

Los­ing her baby will mean los­ing Quin­ton – what is Them­beka to do?

pauses be­fore she has her shock­ing an­swer: a new baby.

MAYBE BABY

“She mourns in the doc­tor’s room for a split se­cond and then she’s like, ‘Okay, when can I have an­other baby?’ She’s in sur­vival mode where she knows that ‘I’ve got to make an­other one quickly or I’m go­ing to lose the love of my life!’ So it’s not a de­ci­sion that’s made with a sober mind,” ex­plains Masasa. Where other women might dis­cuss their tragedy with their part­ner, a close friend or a fam­ily mem­ber, none of those are op­tions for Them­beka who’s friend­less, far from home and in a mar­riage that’s on its last legs.

STRATE­GIC RE­TREAT

But when Them­beka’s rushed ef­forts to hus­tle Quin­ton into bed don’t pan out within the next few days, she creates an “emer­gency” with her granny in PE. “She’s wor­ried that she’s go­ing to slip up and ad­mit that she lost the baby, so she goes off to come up with a plan and a new strat­egy,” re­veals Masasa.

Them­beka is so not done yet (see our YouAsk on page 5)! She’ll be back on­screen in early April.
