Sip of death
Loose-end Lerato gets caught up in David’s revenge plan.
Brenda, Dolly and David’s plan to get rid of Solomon hits a snag. Weekdays e.tv (*194) 19:00
Baddie David Genaro (Jamie Bartlett) is back and since his return in early July, he’s been plotting with prostitute Brenda (Lele Ledwaba) and madam Dolly (Linda Sebenzo) to get revenge on his rival Solomon (Seputla Sebogodi). But his plan comes crashing down when Brenda’s slip-up leaves them exposed to their mutual enemy…
As Solomon’s unhappily kept woman, Brenda’s in the perfect spot to poison Solomon for David. But someone’s got an eye on her on Wednesday 20 July: Solomon’s right-hand woman Lerato (Samkelo Ndlovu). “She notices Brenda is constantly making tea when no one is looking,” reveals Samkelo. “Solomon takes a sip and he doesn’t like how it tastes, so he gives it to his dog which then falls ill. The vet has no idea what’s wrong with the dog.”
While Lerato has her suspicions and “she can make the link between the tea and the sick dog, she can’t imagine what Brenda’s motive to kill Solomon would be”, explains Samkelo. She would probably know exactly why if Lerato knew that David was alive and that he’s the puppetmaster…
WE HAVE A PROBLEM
Brenda thinks that she’s hit the jackpot on Tuesday 26 July when Solomon drinks his tea, at least enough of it to fall ill. “Lerato now knows that Brenda is to blame,” says Samkelo. “Solomon doesn’t finish his tea through, so he doesn’t even go to hospital.” Worrying that Lerato’s now onto her and David, Brenda takes the initiative on Wednesday and poisons Lerato’s drink with a heavier dose than she gave Solomon. David’s not pleased though because it wasn’t part of their carefully laidout plans. Worse yet, Solomon is now suspicious that something’s up.
Lerato is taken to hospital in an unconscious state, which forces David to take care of business himself on Friday 29 July because he can’t afford to have Lerato alerting Solomon and the cops. Thing is, Lerato is still sort of awake and she catches a glimpse of David in her ward before he’s scared off, job still unfinished. “Solomon assures her that it’s just her imagination as he believes David is dead,” says Samkelo…
