Naledi’s on the warpath when she sees Neo. Week­days (*194) 19:30

When Yvonne (Kgomotso Christo­pher) finds out on Wed­nes­day 26 Oc­to­ber that her shady busi­ness con­tact Moscow is ac­tu­ally evil, sup­posed-dead crime king­pin Neo Mokheti (Jerry Mo­fo­keng), it ex­poses an in­tense con­flict of in­ter­est be­tween her self­ish­ness and her de­sire to con­nect with her daugh­ter Naledi (Di­neo Moeketsi). There’s no get­ting around it, es­pe­cially not after Naledi lays into Neo at the NFH of­fices on Thurs­day 27 Oc­to­ber and ac­cuses him of mur­der in front of every­one! “Naledi hears that Neo is in town. She comes back to the of­fice with no in­ten­tion to con­front him, but she finds him strolling out of the board­room after hav­ing a meet­ing with Ed­die (Sandy Mok­wena) and she com­pletely loses her mind,” re­veals Di­neo.


Naledi’s ha­tred of Neo can’t be swept un­der the rug. “Naledi is fu­ri­ous that her brother’s killer is walk­ing free, be­cause she was al­ways un­der the im­pres­sion that Neo had died,” says Di­neo. “It’s part of the rea­son that Naledi was fight­ing her fa­ther (the late Hec­tor Thebe, played by Tu­misho Masha) so much – she felt that he was chas­ing a ghost. And now there’s an el­e­ment of re­gret and guilt re­gard­ing all that con­fronta­tion. She thinks that she’s now tak­ing on the re­spon­si­bil­ity of fight­ing for her legacy.”


When Yvonne bows to Neo’s warn­ing to get Naledi to back off – or else – Naledi is ap­palled. She had no idea that they were in ca­hoots. “She was un­der the im­pres­sion that Moscow is some char­ac­ter among many be­cause ev­ery night Yvonne goes out with peo­ple who Naledi isn’t fa­mil­iar with,” ex­plains Di­neo. “Naledi was start­ing ac­cept her mother for what she is. She thought, ‘You know what, Yvonne’s an adult, let’s just work on what we have. At least there’s one par­ent who’s alive’. But Mom’s only out to look out for her­self, which hurts Naledi in­tensely.”


Neo has no fear when it comes to a con­fronta­tion. With­out her mother’s sup­port on Thurs­day 3 Novem­ber, Naledi turns to some­one who knows what it’s like to live in fear of Neo – Mangi Ny­athi (Kag­iso Modupe). But she’s about to step blind­folded into these ex- cons’ world of dan­ger­ous world of un­spo­ken rules and al­liances…
