Si­fiso and Pu­lane get mar­ried, pack their bags and leave the Laan.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

The newly mar­ried cou­ple are head­ing out of Hill­side. Week­days SABC2 (*192) 19:00

Au­di­ences have waved good­bye to eight Hill­siders this year: Al­tus (Heino Sch­mitt), Bernard ( Werner Coetser), Paula (Di­aan Lawren­son), Gita (Jo da Silva), Ty ( Wilhelm van der Walt), Er­rol (Christo Davids), Felic­ity (Me­lanie Du Bois), as well as Maria (Them­sie Times). Now Si­fiso (Anelisa Phewa) and Pu­lane (Masego Se­hoole) are say­ing farewell on Friday 21 Oc­to­ber, but not be­fore ty­ing the knot.


On Mon­day 10 Oc­to­ber, Si­fiso’s doc­tor had a shock­ing diagnosis. “Si­fiso has a heart con­di­tion and will need a trans­plant,” Anelisa says. On Thurs­day 13 Oc­to­ber, he breaks the news to Pu­lane and be­ing emo­tional, he breaks up with her too. “Si­fiso doesn’t want to be­come a bur­den for Pu­lane with his ill­ness – that’s why he de­cided to break off their en­gage­ment,” Anelisa re­veals. But Pu­lane isn’t ready to give up on him and on Friday 14 Oc­to­ber, she vis­its him at work and in­sists that she won’t ac­cept be­ing dumped. “She loves him and will sup­port Si­fiso de­spite his ill­ness,” Masego says.


On Mon­day 17 Oc­to­ber, Si­fiso quits his job at Bruyn­waves. “There are more im­por­tant things to think of right now – his fu­ture with Pu­lane,” says Anelisa. On Wed­nes­day 19 Oc­to­ber, Si­fiso pro­poses and “Pu­lane hes­i­tates at first as she has re­spon­si­bil­i­ties at the bou­tique and Si­fiso is plan­ning to take her away to Nel­spruit, where there’s a spe­cial­ist who can take care of him,” Masego says. She ac­cepts af­ter some thought and the next day, Thurs­day 20 Oc­to­ber, Hill­side cel­e­brates the small cer­e­mony with Si­fiso and Pu­lane in the Stasie Ses res­tau­rant. It’s a short-lived Laan love as Pu­lane closes shop at the bou­tique and the happy cou­ple say farewell on Friday 21 Oc­to­ber. “The fi­nal scene is bit­ter­sweet,” Anelisa re­veals, with Masego adding, “The view­ers will see how hard it is for me and Anelisa to take our leave of the Laan.”


The ac­tors’ last day on set was at the end of July this year. Masego’s con­tract wasn’t re­newed and Anelisa re­signed in or­der to lec­ture at a film school in Joburg. Masego’s now a fit­ness trainer and of­fers pri­vate ses­sions and dance classes around Joburg. “My business is called 4Fu­sionFit­ness and I en­joy help­ing peo­ple be­come healthy and ac­tive,” she says. Anelisa’s opened his me­dia firm The Thing Works Me­dia and says, “I’m look­ing for­ward to pro­duc­ing my own sto­ries and scripts in TV.”
