Will Amo give up on Kagiso or will she stay with her love?
Mon-Thu Mzansi Magic (*161) 21:00
Move over Romeo and Juliet – Amo and Kagiso (Natasha Thahane and Loyiso Macdonald) are Mzansi’s new star- crossed lovers. Amo’s cop dad Jerry (Shona Ferguson) is investigating Kagiso’s kingpin mom Harriet (Connie Ferguson) and while the two were raised in different worlds, they’re determined to prove their love and overcome obstacles in their path.
HARRIET WOOS AMO
Despite Jerry warning Amo to stay away from the Khozas, the stubborn teen is blinded by love and will do anything for Kagiso. As Natasha explains, “She is naïve. When Amo told her dad in September that she plans to be with Kagiso, Jerry told her to do what she wants but she mustn’t come crying to him when things go wrong.” That threat doesn’t prepare Jerry for when his daughter sides with Harriet and Kagiso on Tuesday 18 October – and she claims that Harriet isn’t a killer despite evidence that Jerry’s collected.
Harriet knows Amo’s weaknesses and manipulates her, explains Natasha. “Harriet can be nice to Amo and she’ll take the girl shopping and tell her nice things and make her feel a accepted, which is all that Amo wants.” But what Amo doesn’t know is that Harriet’s trying to win her over only because she wants Kagiso home after he turned his back on his family in September for their criminal ways. As Harriet tells her brother Kgosi (Sello Maake Ka-Ncube) on Wednesday 19 October, she’s getting Kagiso back through Amo.
IT’S ALL A LIE!
Amo’s willing to overlook Kagiso’s shady family in order to keep him. Harriet’s uncharacteristically friendly attitude makes Amo suspicious, but Amo is going to turn a blind eye to the Khozas’ drug business because she’s found acceptance and she has Kagiso. Adds Natasha, “She knows that there is a web of lies around the family. Even her dad isn’t being honest with Amo.” Worse is still to come on Tuesday 25 October, because as Natasha says, Amo realises that her world is a lie: “Kagiso’s sister Kea (Dineo Moeketsi), who was always cold, is suddenly loving. Jerry isn’t telling her anything and seems to know something about the murders in the area. Harriet is sweet all of a sudden and Kagiso is telling Amo halftruths. It’s just lies, lies, lies!”
