Busi­ness­man Lerumo Mo­jalefa (John Mo­ra­pama) has been off Mu­vhango screens since March 2016 when schemer busi­ness­woman Mat­shidiso (Buhle Sa­muels) tried to bully him into sell­ing her his man­sion on the cheap. His mind­set has changed by Mon­day 22 Au­gust when view­ers catch up to him speed­ing home with good news for his fam­ily. But speed kills and death brings out the money-grab­bers…

AC­CI­DENTS HAP­PEN

“Shock­ing! Lerumo’s dead!” says Ran­tebeng Maka­pan, who plays Lerumo’s son Mo­ra­pedi. The cops call Mo­ra­pedi from the scene of the ac­ci­dent later on Mon­day 22 Au­gust, send­ing Lerumo’s heir into a tail­spin. Mo­ra­pedi heads to the Mo­jalefa man­sion and starts reach­ing out to the fam­ily’s near­est and dear­est to break the news on Tues­day 23 Au­gust. “Ev­ery­one is in mourn­ing,” ex­plains Ran­tebeng. “He calls his sis­ter Mang­washe (Tumi Malefo), the Muk­w­evhos and Lerumo’s friends. He also tells Lerumo’s baby­mama Carol (Phuti Khomo) but she can’t make the fu­neral.” But that’s not the only drama start­ing on Wed­nes­day 24 Au­gust… Mo­ra­pedi (right) isn’t happy when dead dad Lerumo’s (cen­tre) wife Kho­motjo re­turns.

DIG­GING FOR GOLD

Lerumo’s sec­ond wife Kho­motjo (Rami Chuene) kicks down the doors to the Mo­jalefa man­sion af­ter the me­mo­rial ser­vice on Wed­nes­day 24 Au­gust – she wasn’t in­vited due to a long his­tory of bad blood be­tween her and the fam­ily. “She is here to grab her share of what­ever money Lerumo left in his estate,” ex­plains Ran­tebeng. And the sur­prises keep com­ing! De­ceased first wife Moriti’s ( Tshidi Vera) twin sis­ter Serithi (Mo­la­bane Mbatha) re­veals the news that Lerumo was rac­ing to tell ev­ery­one be­fore his ac­ci­dent: that they’re hus­band and wife! “Ev­ery­one’s still in shock about the death and now they find out that Lerumo has a new wife,” Ran­tebeng re­veals.

NOTH­ING FOR MAHALA

“Money is a big part of the Mo­jalefa sib­lings’ fall­ing apart and it’s the rea­son that Kho­motjo re­turns,” Ran­tebeng says. Mo­ra­pedi thinks that he has ev­ery right to his father’s money be­cause he is the male heir, but his sis­ter Mang­washe thinks that she has ev­ery right too. Their fight on Mon­day 29 Au­gust is so bad that Mang­washe storms out, turn­ing her back on the fam­ily on Tues­day 30 Au­gust. With the two kids out the way now, Lerumo’s wives only have each other to fight for his estate.
