Sib­ling ri­valry reaches new heights for Tsi­etsi and Reba. Week­days (*194) 20:00

Imag­ine liv­ing un­der the same roof as the per­son who tried to kill you and see them at work ev­ery day? Sounds like the stuff of night­mares, but Reba (Ze­nande Mfenyana) is sleep­ing with one eye open so that she’s ready if her twin brother Tsi­etsi (Nyaniso Dzedze) tries to take her out again in a fight for the Namane family throne. “She’s got a gun now and she knows how to use it,” Ze­nande re­veals. “Any­time is play­time!” Lit­tle does Reba know that she and Tsi­etsi are go­ing to get closer than ei­ther thought pos­si­ble.


Reba isn’t pleased that she’s forced to work with Tsi­etsi on an im­por­tant project on Thurs­day 23 June. “She’s against it,” says Ze­nande. “Tsi­etsi is al­lowed to just waltz back into the com­pany [af­ter his mur­der trial], while she thought that her par­ents un­der­stood what she went through.” Reba re­alises that Mand­lakazi and Selo (Nam­bitha Mpuml­wana and Pa­trick Shai) are unashamedly play­ing favourites and en­cour­age a civil at­ti­tude. “They get along for the sake of the busi­ness pitch, but Reba’s not keen on get­ting into bed with the en­emy.”


Just be­cause there is a truce doesn’t mean that Reba’s rest­ing on her lau­rels: she grabs the chance to prove her­self when Tsi­etsi goes to Ficks­burg on Fri­day 24 June to pre­pare for his tra­di­tional wed­ding with his wife and baby­mamma Mpho (Nyal­leng Thibedi). “Reba is de­ter­mined to sab­o­tage him, us­ing tricks that she’s learnt from be­ing in the Namane family,” says Ze­nande. And Tsi­etsi can’t fight back. Mpho gives him an ul­ti­ma­tum on Mon­day 27 June: their mar­riage or the deal that he and Reba are work­ing on. Pushed into a corner, Tsi­etsi’s forced to do the one thing he hates: re­lin­quish­ing power to Reba.


And while she’s bask­ing in the spot­light as the big deal at work, Reba gets an eye opener when po­ten­tial client Malaika (Thuli Tha­bethe) threat­ens to take her busi­ness else­where af­ter she has a fall­ing out with her ex-boyfriend Tsi­etsi on Fri­day 1 July. “Reba pleads and goes out of her way to make sure that Malaika stays,” says Ze­nande. But will Malaika’s loy­al­ties lie with the com­pany that her ex is in­volved in or will she be spite­ful and make Reba ap­pear in­com­pe­tent? Per­haps this project is call­ing for a lit­tle more team­work than Reba was ready for…
