Flirt­ing with dis­as­ter

Zinzile’s sis­ter Phindi just wants to have fun... with Ndu!

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SCANDAL! -

Ndu’s en­gaged to Gontse… Week­days (*194) 19:30

Zinzile Ngema’s (Gcina Nkosi) joy at see­ing her lit­tle sis­ter Phindi (Pretty Ncayiyana) on her doorstep on Tues­day 16 Au­gust fiz­zled out fast. Ad­ven­tur­ous Phindi has run away from home be­cause her hus­band took her back to her mom and dad like she was a bro­ken ap­pli­ance be­ing re­turned to the fac­tory. “Phindi wasn’t get­ting preg­nant and she was just not wife ma­te­rial. Her hus­band was like, ‘Uh-uh girl, I’m tak­ing you back home. You need to learn how to cook and do this and that’,” ex­plains Pretty. Zinzile tries to do the big-sis­ter thing and send Phindi home, but dur­ing her brief visit, Phindi catches wind of a job op­por­tu­nity that’ll al­low her to se­cretly “live the Joburg life”. And now it’s not just her own fam­ily that she’ll be mak­ing trou­ble for…


Phindi’s sharp ear catches a hint from Zinzile’s next door neigh­bour Scelo (Mbulelo Nd­lazil­wana) that he’s mov­ing on from his job at Qs bistro, so she im­me­di­ately ap­proaches Qs man­ager Ndu (Andile Sit­hole) on Thurs­day 18 Au­gust and sparks fly. “He’s drawn by her en­ergy and how much she wants to have fun,” re­veals Pretty. “She is hon­est with him from the word go. She tells him that she’s run away from her hus­band and Ndu is un­der­stand­ing. He doesn’t judge and I think that is what she likes about Ndu.”


…but he doesn’t tell Phindi, who’s head over heels for him. Ndu, on the other hand, isn’t quite as forth­com­ing. He makes no men­tion of his en­gage­ment to his baby­mama Gontse (Khany­isile Zwane) on Mon­day 22 Au­gust or that he’s in lobola ne­go­ti­a­tions. In­stead, he’s drawn into a kiss with Phindi on Thurs­day 25 Au­gust. “Phindi is just go­ing with the flow. She goes all naughty and they start flirt­ing,” laughs Pretty, who’s clear that it’s some­thing her char­ac­ter wouldn’t do if she knew about Gontse and the baby. “As much as she wants to have fun, she’s not that kind of girl. Ndu didn’t tell her!” says Pretty.
