Skeem Saam

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 16 NOVEMBER -

Mak­ing money has al­ways been at the top of Charles Kunutu’s (Masilo Magoro) list on Skeem Saam (2011-cur­rent), so he jumped when the chance to make quick cash pre­sented it­self on Thurs­day 3 Novem­ber. But Charles soon re­alises that he’s caught in the crosshairs of a loan­shark and the law…

How does Charles come up with his loan­shark idea? His friend Wal­let (Molefi Mon­aisa) doesn’t re­pay his loan from Charles as promised. So Charles fig­ures that he should add in­ter­est to the debt and he re­alises that he could ac­tu­ally make a liv­ing out of this [busi­ness]. What makes him think it’ll work? Charles has al­ways been a chancer. What­ever he can do to make money, he’ll do it. From hik­ing up food prices to hav­ing pool tour­na­ments, there’s noth­ing he isn’t will­ing to try if he be­lieves that it will help build the Kunutu em­pire. So how does Charles’s new busi­ness land him in trou­ble on Fri­day 11 Novem­ber? Peo­ple com­plain to Cap­tain Male­bana (Arthur Molepo), es­pe­cially since Charles is an il­le­gal money lender. And he’s in dan­ger on Tues­day 15 Novem­ber… Tur­floop’s most dan­ger­ous loan­shark Dragon (Julius Mosana) finds out about Charles’s busi­ness. Dragon was in­tro­duced in sea­son 1 after Tbose and Kwaito (Cor­net Mam­abolo and Cle­ment Maosa) tried to bor­row money to pay for John Ma­putla’s (Africa Tsoai) bakkie that had been in an ac­ci­dent. Dragon warns Charles to shut down his busi­ness and stop steal­ing his cus­tomers. And what hap­pens to Wal­let and his debt? Charles goes out to look for Wal­let [on Tues­day 22 Novem­ber] be­cause he has been avoid­ing Charles. He sends Wal­let mes­sages via other peo­ple and when that fails, Charles goes to Tur­floop him­self. NB! See more on p18.
