So much has changed in Sibahle Dhlomo’s (Londeka Mlaba) life so fast that she’s com­pletely off bal­ance when flirty preacher Ayanda (Kay Sibiya) kisses her on Wed­nes­day 22 June. That kiss comes the same day that her dad De­tec­tive Dhlomo (Don Mlan­geni Nawa) in­tro­duces her to his family’s elders, who em­brace her with an in­tro­duc­tion to the an­ces­tors. “It’s a rush of ex­cite­ment,” says Londeka. “Where Sibahle comes from [her trou­bled past that’s not shown], she didn’t get to feel that she be­longed, so for her it’s over­whelm­ing. Dur­ing the whole an­ces­tor cer­e­mony, it’s the first time she’s felt loved and cared for – and that’s the point of the cer­e­mony.” But this out­pour­ing of love is in stark con­trast to the years of re­jec­tion and shame that freeze Sibahle for a sec­ond. Will she be able to let her­self be loved?


Un­til the kiss, Sibahle’s been wary of Ayanda. “At first, she chooses not to be at­tracted to him sim­ply be­cause he’s a pas­tor,” ad­mits Londeka. “She feels that peo­ple are go­ing to be judge­men­tal of her past and judge­men­tal of her. She’s try­ing to run away from Ayanda but at the same time she likes his com­pany. But when the kiss hap­pens, she didn’t ex­pect it, so she doesn’t re­spond to it un­til the next day.” Sadly for Ayanda’s dev­as­tated ex­fi­ancée Sman­gele (Sihle Nd­aba), who walks in on them on Mon­day 27 June, Sibahle de­cides to kiss Ayanda back.


A warn­ing from Sibahle’s dad, whose sharp eye hasn’t missed Ayanda’s in­ter­est in his daugh­ter, has the op­po­site ef­fect to what he’s in­tend­ing on Tues­day 5 July. Once Sibahle’s heard about Ayanda’s train-wreck life, she sees him in a dif­fer­ent – and dat­able – light. “She thought Ayanda was a saint. She is sur­prised, but she goes on to ask him about it in a very po­lite man­ner – she needs to not take it too badly and not to fight with him. Be­cause her past is worse and more trau­ma­tis­ing than Ayanda’s, she’s will­ing to for­give in or­der to be for­given.” It looks like Ayanda’s just won his dream girl by be­ing “Pas­tor Dis­as­ter”!
