Azwin­dini wor­ries when his sons Muvhango and Mu­londo go miss­ing. Week­days SABC2 (*192) 21:00

Panic fills Thathe when princes Muvhango and Mu­londo (Owen Mm­bobo and Ndamulelo Mbuwe) dis­ap­pear on Mon­day 4 July. Im­me­di­ately the royal fam­ily forms a pro­tec­tive shield around Chief Azwin­dini (Gabriel Te­mudzani), who’s try­ing to fig­ure out who kid­napped his sons and why. Could it pos­si­bly be some­one who wants to re­place him as chief?

MISS­ING MEN

There’s still no sign of Azwin­dini’s sons on Wed­nes­day 6 July and says Gabriel, “Azwin­dini feels sad, de­jected, hurt… His sons be­ing kid­napped im­pacts him but he tries to put up a strong front for his vil­lagers.” Mean­while, view­ers see Muvhango and Mu­londo tied up some­where in the moun­tains near Thathe and while the kid­nap­per’s iden­tity is still un­der wraps, view­ers are go­ing to find out – along with Muvhango and Mu­londo – that this is part of their ini­ti­a­tion, as per cul­tural cus­toms, some­thing that Azwin­dini didn’t ex­pe­ri­ence.

ON THE SUS­PECT LIST

Un­aware that his sons are ac­tu­ally safe, the chief is cer­tain that some­one is out to get him and his fam­ily on Thurs­day 7 July and Gabriel ex­plains that “to him, as the leader, his chief­taincy is be­ing at­tacked. His sons have been taken and they are in line to suc­ceed him on the throne. Azwin­dini also has strong sus­pi­cions that the kid­nap­per is some­one known to him, but he’s not sure who.” Frus­trated, Azwin­dini flies into a rage on Thurs­day 7 July and ques­tions ev­ery­one he thinks may have a vendetta against him – in­clud­ing a few shocked fam­ily mem­bers.

POWER OR FAM­ILY?

Azwin­dini’s fam­ily fear for his san­ity on Fri­day 8 July and call a meet­ing, hop­ing that it will give him hope and a plan to find his sons. “The fam­ily is dev­as­tated [by the kid­nap­ping and Azwin­dini’s state] but they pull to­gether de­spite their dif­fer­ences,” hints Gabriel. “Fam­i­lies have the abil­ity to come to­gether in cri­sis. The wives be­come pil­lars of sup­port and so does un­cle Gizara (David Sebe).” But by Tues­day 19 July, when their search party doesn’t find the miss­ing princes, the Thathe el­ders sug­gest that the chief ab­di­cate. “These po­lit­i­cal shenani­gans aren’t worth it – Azwin­dini goes against cul­ture for the sake of his boys,” says Gabriel. “It does not just im­pact the fam­ily. It has huge con­se­quences for the vil­lage too!”
