Sea­son 2 SABC2 (*192) 21:30

Fu­mani Shilubana has been out­stand­ing as loath­some, cor­rupt construction boss Rudzani through­out sea­son 2 of Thola (2014-2016). “I know that view­ers don’t like Rudzani, but they will take a lot of grat­i­fi­ca­tion from how it ends for him,” Fu­mani teases of tonight’s sea­son fi­nale. “He’s very un­happy be­cause his metic­u­lous plans might not play out as he’d hoped.” While we rub our hands and wait for that to hap­pen, we have some fi­nal ques­tions for Fu­mani…

Which five of Rudzani’s ac­tions have you found the most shock­ing? Fak­ing his own death (sea­son 1, April 2014)… and then fram­ing his wife Dibuseng (then Nthati Moshesh) for it (through­out sea­son 1)! He chose for his daugh­ter Kone to die (sea­son 1 episode 15) just for a busi­ness deal not to go wrong – that was by far the worst thing he did! While Dibuseng (played by KB Mot­si­lanyane this sea­son) was in prison (sea­son 2, from May 2016) he made sure that she had a ter­ri­ble time… and this was af­ter he took ev­ery­thing from her. Then there was or­ches­trat­ing Dibuseng’s death while she was in prison (sea­son 2 episode 5). Does he have any good points? Rudzani is a smart en­gi­neer who, in sea­son 1, got low­ered into the cor­rup­tion world. He also loves his son Shoni (Pa­ballo Koza) very much. So what was his big­gest mis­take? Steal­ing from the Sa­maki Motha car­tel and also trust­ing his girl­friend Lu­funo (Ler­ato Zah Moloi). What would you do if you met Rudzani in real life? I’d run in the op­po­site di­rec­tion be­cause I don’t think that he’s a hu­man be­ing any­more! How­ever, I would feel sorry for him be­cause he’s so far gone that there’s noth­ing that one can do to re­deem him.
