You don’t make a move on Nosipho Xulu’s (Nom­pilo Maphumulo) man and ex­pect her to give in grace­fully – not even if you’re wav­ing a baby in her face. Nosipho has lit­er­ally put in months of work get­ting hot De­tec­tive Mondli (Them­binkosi Th­wala) to no­tice her, so when Mbalenhle (Lungile Mt­shali) rocked up in KwaMashu on Mon­day 13 June and just “ba­bied” her way into Mondli’s life and his house on Tues­day 14 June, Nosipho was fu­ri­ous. But what if Mbalenhe’s lit­tle boy isn’t ac­tu­ally Mondli’s son? Nosipho has taken stock of Mbalenhle and all she sees is a 24- carat gold­dig­ger and a liar to boot. “Nosipho feels that Mbalenhle has no style at all. She just sees her as a gold- dig­ging vam­pire,” re­veals Nom­pilo. “But she’s threat­ened by her cun­ning ways – she feels that Mbalenhle is hid­ing some­thing.” And top- cop Mondli isn’t the only de­tec­tive in this re­la­tion­ship…

WHO’S THE DADDY?

Nor­mally mak­ing a fake baby­mamma go away is as sim­ple as ABC, or in the world of soapies, tak­ing a quick DNA test. But not this time. “Mbalenhle refuses to be open with Mondli and she refuses to take a pa­ter­nity test to prove that Mondli is lit­tle Sibongiseni’s (Qhawe Dubazana) dad. She gets an­gry when the sub­ject is brought up,” says Nom­pilo. “Mbalenhle is pres­sur­ing him that if he does take a test, even if it turns out that Sibongiseni is his son, Mondli will never see him again.” Mondli’s hands are tied, so Nosipho de­cides to take ac­tion. “With Thandeka’s (Sthem­bile Nyanda) help, she agrees to do it be­hind his back. At the end of the day, she’s will­ing to do all that she can to help the man she loves,” says Nom­pilo.

OKAY WITH THE BABY

Nosipho doesn’t mind that her man is a fa­ther and she has big­ger fish to fry than wor­ry­ing over some af­fair that hap­pened be­fore he even came to KwaMashu. “It was a shock and she was up­set be­cause of the way that she found out,” says Nom­pilo. “It was a sur­prise to her that Mondli didn’t tell her about it. She doesn’t mind Mondli hav­ing a child, but she does mind the baby­mamma. She feels like if it is Mondli’s child, they could raise the baby to­gether – with­out the baby­mamma be­ing in­volved.”

THE COM­PE­TI­TION

And this isn’t a “wait and see” sit­u­a­tion for Nosipho ei­ther. “Mbalenhe tries to se­duce Mondli any way she can. She lives with him now. She’s in the house and she has the up­per hand,” re­veals Nom­pilo. “Nosipho trusts the love be­tween her and Mondli, she trusts their re­la­tion­ship and she tries to help Mondli find out whether the son is his so that if he does raise the child, he’s not rais­ing an­other man’s child.”

FAKE FA­CIAL

Nosipho’s schem­ing to get DNA from her boyfriend Mondli. On Wed­nes­day 29 June, Nosipho sneak­ily of­fers Mbalenhle an at-home fa­cial to apol­o­gise for all the at­ti­tude that she’s been giv­ing her. “Nosipho’s not be­ing sin­cere at all,” laughs Nom­pilo. “She wants Mbalenhle out the pic­ture. The only rea­son she wants to give her the fa­cial is to get ac­cess into the house so that she can get DNA sam­ples from the child. Oth­er­wise there’s noth­ing nice about the smile she’s putting on.” Get­ting a DNA sam­ple from Sibongiseni is as sim­ple as let­ting the tot briefly gnaw on an ear­bud, but Nosipho is go­ing to have to get craftier when it comes to scor­ing Mondli’s sam­ple on the sly. So on Mon­day 4 July, Nosipho and her pal Thandeka set their minds to strate­gis­ing.
