Nkonzo de­mands an­swers from Mand­lakazi and Selo. Week­days e.tv (*194) 20:00

De­tec­tive Nkonzo (Menzi Ngubane) is crushed af­ter the ver­dict is read on Fri­day 10 June and the guy he was look­ing to put be­hind bars walks free. Tsi­etsi Namane (Nyaniso Dzedze) is home on Mon­day 13 June af­ter be­ing found not guilty of killing his brother Mon­wabisi (Chu­mani Pan) in a fit of rage in Au­gust last year. Nkonzo was hop­ing to see Tsi­etsi in prison as the cop’s ob­ses­sion with the Na­manes came to a head dur­ing the trial, but now that justice has failed him, Nkonzo re­veals what’s fu­elling his ha­tred.

A CRY FOR HELP

Nkonzo searches for an ally in his war against the Na­manes on Mon­day 13 June and tells his cop part­ner De­tec­tive Zungu (Nqobile Si­pamla) that “they [the Na­manes] pre­tended to sac­ri­fice one of their twins for money and power but stole his sis­ter’s baby and killed her in­stead of baby Reba (an adult now, played by Ze­nande Mfenyana),” says Menzi. Zungu is shocked but re­fuses to take part in any scheme in the name of re­venge. “Nkonzo fig­ures that since do­ing things law­fully didn’t work, he should now go the op­po­site route.”

HOSTAGE SIT­U­A­TION

By Fri­day 17 June, Nkonzo feels that he has no choice but to con­front the fam­ily on their doorstep. “He doesn’t know who’s home and the but­ler con­firms that Mand­lakazi and her hubby Selo (Nam­bitha Mpuml­wana and Pa­trick Shai) are there,” says Menzi. Nkonzo then holds ev­ery­one up at gun­point, de­mand­ing the truth. By the time that Selo re­veals that the baby’s bones are in the backyard on Mon­day 20 June, the po­lice have sur­rounded the house but Nkonzo isn’t con­cerned. “He in­structs Selo to lead him to the grave but just as Selo’s dig­ging, a sniper shoots Nkonzo and he’s ar­rested,” Menzi re­veals.

BUT IT’S NOT OVER

On Tues­day 21 June, Nkonzo’s mother Ma’Maz­ibuko (Nandi Nyembe) vis­its him in jail and prom­ises to fin­ish what he’s started. “She uses a fake iden­tity and gets work at the Na­manes to dig up info that she’ll bring back to Nkonzo,” Menzi ex­plains. “Nkonzo’s con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the fam­ily from be­hind bars and they don’t even know it!”
