It’s been a tough cou­ple of months for Thathe mayor Mu­lalo (Syd­ney Ra­makuela). He’s been cam­paign­ing for re- elec­tion while also try­ing to keep his pushy wife Te­boho (Lite­boho Molise) happy and fight off a threat for his may­oral po­si­tion from Vele (Mad­huva Madima). On top of that, his mis­tress Shon­isani (Tshi­nondiwa Thovhakale) has got­ten close to the town’s tra­di­tional healer Mulim­isi (Hum­bu­lani Tsha­rani), whom Mu­lalo de­tests. They’re only pals but Mu­lalo doesn’t know that…


Mu­lalo spots Shoni and Mulim­isi chat­ting and laugh­ing on Wed­nes­day 22 June at a restau­rant and im­me­di­ately thinks the worst. Says Tshi­nondiwa, “This isn’t the first time Mulim­isi and Shon­isani have spo­ken, but it is the first time af­ter a long time. Shon­isani’s got a job helping at Mulim­isi’s healer shop to oc­cupy her time while Mu­lalo’s been cam­paign­ing.” Mu­lalo’s pushed his mis­tress aside since Te­boho came home in March 2016, but see­ing Shoni with an­other man ruf­fles his feath­ers.


It seems Mu­lalo’s not the only one get­ting the wrong mes­sage: Shoni’s friend­li­ness is mis­taken as flirt­ing by Mulim­isi and on Tues­day 28 June, he’s con­vinced that she’s fu­ture-wife ma­te­rial. “Mulim­isi is fall­ing in love and even hints to Shon­isani that she’s the girl he’d marry,” says Tshi­nondiwa. “But Shoni isn’t into him and she just wants to be friends.” Mu­lalo con­fronts Shoni on Wed­nes­day 29 June and she soothes his fears, re­mind­ing him that he’s “the king of her heart”. Tshi­nondiwa adds that “Mu­lalo will al­ways have a spe­cial place is Shoni’s heart, es­pe­cially since he’s the man who de­flow­ered her [in Novem­ber 2014]”.


Mu­lalo’s seething as he watches Shoni and Mulim­isi. While Mu­lalo ac­cepts what Shoni says, he’s still wary of Mulim­isi, who’s con­vinced more than ever on Thurs­day 30 June that Shoni’s into him. He’s so sure that he’s ready to make his on- off girl­friend Mpho (Azwimm­bavhi Ramm­buda) a thing of the past. As for Shoni, she may be hav­ing a change of heart: be­ing friends with Mulim­isi has shown her that “there are bet­ter guys out there than Mu­lalo,” hints Tshi­nondiwa. Sounds like Mu­lalo’s about to lose some­thing he holds very dear…
