Con­vict Lelo could be free… Week­days SABC1 (*191) 18:30

When Ma’Ntuli (Dieket­seng Mnisi) hears that the woman who tried to kill her son in a fire in Oc­to­ber 2014 is go­ing to be re­leased and serve the rest of her prison sen­tence un­der house ar­rest, she sets off on a quest to keep Lelo (Amanda du-Pont) be­hind bars. Kwaito (Cle­ment Maosa) joins the mis­sion to deny Lelo life out­side of prison on Thurs­day 1 Septem­ber and says Cle­ment, “Even though she’s a mother now, Kwaito knows that Lelo hasn’t soft­ened and she will come af­ter him if she’s re­leased.” He put her in jail, but can he keep her there?


Kwaito’s seething on Fri­day 2 Septem­ber as Lelo pre­pares to leave her cell and live her dream of a free life with her baby­daddy Man­gal­iso (Bon­gani Ma­sondo) and their child. “He’s furious and doesn’t like it at all,” says Cle­ment. “They fought hard to make sure that Lelo goes to jail and now it seems like it was all for noth­ing.” Mean­while, a deter­mined Ma’Ntuli asks Cap­tain Male­bana (Arthur Molepo) on Mon­day 5 Septem­ber about stop­ping Lelo but he tells her that it’s out of his hands. So she heads to Joburg to find help there. …but not if Kwaito and Ma’Ntuli can help it.


“At first Kwaito is up­set about his mom’s visit be­cause he be­lieves that he’s a grown man and can han­dle Lelo and his own busi­ness,” says Cle­ment. “But he re­alises that his mom isn’t the en­emy– Lelo is and they have to work to­gether.” When Ma’Ntuli ar­rives on Tues­day 6 Septem­ber, she tries by all means to make sure that Lelo’s free­dom is de­nied. “Kwaito is pos­i­tive they will suc­ceed in stop­ping the ap­peal,” says Cle­ment. “He has to be, be­cause he knows that when crim­i­nals are re­leased, even if they’re guilty, they come for who­ever put them in jail.”


Know­ing how crazy Lelo can be, Kwaito should be wor­ried, es­pe­cially when Lelo learns on Tues­day 13 Septem­ber that she has to un­pack her bags and put her dreams on hold be­cause she’s stay­ing in jail. “Kwaito is re­lieved that his life is no longer in dan­ger and even laughs off a threat from Lelo be­cause he knows that she’s pow­er­less from be­hind bars,” says Cle­ment.
