Trou­ble walked in when shady busi­ness­man Kings­ley Se­seko Langa’s (Hlomla Dan­dala) wife Bon­iswa (Lu­sanda Mbane) rang the door­bell to her hus­band’s new home on Fri­day 26 Au­gust and her sis­ter-in­law Yvonne (Kgomotso Christo­pher) opened the door look­ing quite at home. And this fort­night, two women who were per­fectly com­fort­able about their place in Kings­ley’s life be­fore, are go­ing to feel the pinch…


is start­ing to go up­side- down. She doesn’t jump around and use all these ges­tures.” Bon­iswa is gen­tly amused by Yvonne at first, re­veals Lu­sanda. “Yvonne is quite over the top. She al­ways has these sto­ries and she is al­ways play­ing the damsel in dis­tress, so Bon­iswa is amused.”


But Bon­iswa isn’t smil­ing when she crit­i­cises Yvonne as a mother on Thurs­day 1 Septem­ber. “Yvonne doesn’t look like she’s moved by her daugh­ter Naledi (Di­neo Moeketsi) hav­ing an af­fair with Quin­ton (Brighton Ngoma),” ex­plains Lu­sanda. “Bon­iswa is like, ‘What kind of mother are you?’” And when Yvonne strikes back on Fri­day 2 Septem­ber, she fights dirty. “Yvonne hints that she and Se­seko go way back and that she is the star of the show here. And as much as her hus­band is halfway across the world for much of the time, Bon­iswa trusts him com­pletely. There is no way that her Se­seko ever could have even looked at a woman like that. But maybe it’s true? It’s a turn­ing point in their re­la­tion­ship. Yvonne isn’t so hu­mor­ous now. She is ir­ri­tat­ing. Now I want her out. Now we’re go­ing to see who is the woman in Se­seko’s life.” Se­seko’s stuck in a war be­tween women. Schem­ing, gold-dig­ging Yvonne couldn’t be more dif­fer­ent than Bon­iswa. Lu­sanda re­veals, “Bon­iswa comes from Bisho in the Eastern Cape, so she speaks hec­tic Xhosa. She’s very grounded, you will hear that im­me­di­ately – she calls her hus­band ‘Se­seko’ while ev­ery­one else calls him Kings­ley. She’s warm, quite moth­erly and a nice, kind per­son. She owns a school, so she’s not made by her hus­band. And she is like a Thuli Madon­sela [un­til re­cently South Africa’s Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor] in that even when she is very up­set, it’s not like the world Yvonne (left) starts plan­ning her re­venge while Bon­iswa is giv­ing her a tongue lash­ing.
