Aggie’s new man wants her to be his wife but is she comfortable being with a polygamist?
Poor Aggie (Mimi Mahlasela) – she finally got a job after months of being unemployed but now she has problems in her love life, thanks to falling for her new boss Winston Mofokeng (Sam Medupe). She’s head over heels but he’s already married – with not one but two wives and Aggie isn’t keen to become the third wheel. Or is she? On Wednesday 13 July, Aggie throws caution into the wind and gives Winston a chance, but things get weird when she meets the first Mrs Mofokeng…
LIVING IN CONFLICT
Until now, Aggie’s made it clear that she won’t fool around with a married man, but after a serious chat with Winston in his office on Thursday 7 July, Aggie starts to consider becoming his third wife. He tells her that he’s crazy about her and that he isn’t looking for a fling, but she must understand that his cultural roots are strong and he hopes that she will consider giving their relationship a chance despite the other two woman in his life. Mimi says that her character promises to think about it and she asks Winston to give her some space, adding that “she’s in conflict because of her own upbringing and desire to have one man with whom she can grow old”.
BLINDED BY LOVE
The following day, Friday 8 July, Aggie tells Winston that she isn’t keen to share him. “She’s heartbroken because she has deep feelings for the man,” says Mimi. But after contemplating every outcome over the weekend, Aggie tells Winston on Monday 11 July that she made a hasty decision and because of her strong feelings for him, she is willing to be with him. On Thursday 14 July, Aggie’s still floating on cloud nine after they share their first kiss and “at this stage, Aggie is blinded by love and doesn’t even think about Winston’s other two wives,” Mimi explains.
THE UGLY TRUTH
But on Friday 15 July, Aggie’s served a harsh dose of reality when Winston’s first wife Naledi Mofokeng (Monnye Kunupi) takes her out for breakfast at the Deli. “It’s an awkward situation and Aggie feels uncomfortable,” says Mimi. And things get even worse on Tuesday 19 July when Aggie has a coffee date with Naledi in Oppiekoffie – Naledi lets slip that as soon as Aggie becomes the third wife, she will be expected to get pregnant right away because Winston wants a son!
Aggie’s made up her mind about marrying her man. Winston gets his woman.
