Themba (Sphamandla Dhludhlu) was chased out of town in September for his affair with brother Suffo’s (Mduduzi Mabaso) wife Niki (Nolo Phiri). Now he’s back… for Suffo’s other wife Puleng (Tebogo Khalo). “Themba is deeply in love and wants to find Puleng,” says Sphamandla. But there’s more than just love tying him to her: Puleng is pregnant with his baby!
“LEAVE ME ALONE!”
The first person Themba goes to see is Puleng on Tuesday 18 October. “She is surprised; for all she knew he was dead after what happened with Suffo a few weeks ago,” Sphamandla says. When Themba reveals why he’s back, Puleng is surprised that he’d think she would consider being with him over Suffo. “She’ll never run away with Themba, but he doesn’t care. He wants to profess his love after they had sex in KZN in June to get Puleng pregnant since genetics are stopping her and Suffo having kids,” explains Sphamandla.
On Thursday 20 October, “Themba finds out from Reneilwe (Amogelang Chidi) that Puleng is expecting, so he’s more determined to take her away with him,” says Sphamandla. “He knows that since Puleng hasn’t lost the baby yet, it must be his and not Suffo’s.”
After a nasty confrontation, Puleng gets local layabouts Toolkit and Speshil (Paul Maila and Sayipsheni Mdakhi) on Friday 21 October to scare Themba off by attacking him. “Themba isn’t afraid of anything, including Suffo. He’s not going to leave his child behind,” says Sphamandla. Sensing this, Puleng tells her goons on Tuesday 25 October to do “whatever it takes” to chase him off…
