Kag­iso Khoza (Loyiso Mac­don­ald) is dev­as­tated by De­tec­tive Jerry (Shona Fer­gu­son) ar­rest­ing his drug king­pin mom Har­riet (Con­nie Fer­gu­son) on Mon­day 7 Novem­ber. Up­set at see­ing her locked in a tiny cell when he vis­its her on Tues­day 8 Novem­ber, Kag­iso’s ready to prove his crim­i­nal ways by break­ing Har­riet out of jail, with some help from his dodgy un­cle Kgosi (Sello Maake Ka-Ncube).


It’s not go­ing to be easy, hints Loyiso. “Kag­iso and his mother haven’t had a good re­la­tion­ship ever since Kag­iso left home in Au­gust 2016. Har­riet dis­ap­proved of Kag­iso dat­ing Jerry’s daugh­ter Amo (Natasha Tha­hane), which forced Kag­iso to turn his back on his fam­ily. But at the end of the day, Kag­iso loves his mother and he’s us­ing his heart in­stead of his head to save Har­riet.” While emo­tion drives Kag­iso, Kgosi uses his street smarts and logic to plot his sis­ter’s jail­break on Wed­nes­day 9 Novem­ber. “Kgosi has con­tacts in the drug- deal­ing busi­ness and he knows who to call, when to call and how to get favours,” Loyiso says. “Kgosi does ev­ery­thing he can pos­si­bly think of, like ma­nip­u­lat­ing peo­ple, black­mail­ing peo­ple and even pay­ing peo­ple to get the job done.”


But while Kag­iso and Kgosi are busy schem­ing on Mon­day 14 Novem­ber to put Har­riet back on her throne in the fam­ily’s co­caine busi­ness, the rest of the Khoza fam­ily are fight­ing over the em­pire. “Har­riet’s daugh­ter and Kag­iso’s sis­ter Kea (Di­neo Moeketsi) is hop­ing to take over the busi­ness,” says Loyiso. “Kea never cared much for it, but now she’s in it for the money. After all, if the Khoza em­pire falls apart, she won’t be able to af­ford this lifestyle that she’s be­come ac­cus­tomed to.” And Kea’s ready to play hard­ball on Tues­day 15 Novem­ber when she goes head-to­head with her step­brother Shaka (SK Khoza) and his part­ner in crime Linda (Ce­leste Khumalo).


The Khoza men roll out their res­cue plan on Wed­nes­day 16 Novem­ber with De­tec­tive Jerry none the wiser that his pris­oner’s gone un­til it’s too late. But good-kid Kag­iso is struck down by guilt later, as Loyiso ex­plains. “This is out of Kag­iso’s char­ac­ter to do what he did to save Har­riet. He promised him­self that he’d never be in­volved in the world of backstabbing and ly­ing, but here he is do­ing ex­actly that. He feels re­morse.”

But while Kag­iso’s emo­tions are at war, newly re­stored queen bee Har­riet has hers in check – and she’ll need to stay cool, calm and col­lected from Thurs­day 17 Novem­ber be­cause she’s mak­ing changes to the fam­ily em­pire, start­ing with an im­por­tant an­nounce­ment that same day. She’s mak­ing her son Kag­iso her suc­ces­sor on Tues­day 22 Novem­ber… whether he likes it or not. “He’s shocked, afraid and un­sure why Har­riet’s done this,” says Loyiso. “After all they’ve been through, he’s now faced with this! But after some thought, he takes things in his stride, aware that he’ll need all the help he can get to make Har­riet proud.”

Kgosi and his nephew Kag­iso (right) want Har­riet out of jail. Har­riet has a lot on her plate be­sides be­ing be­hind bars.

Jerry doesn’t re­alise just how re­source­ful the Khozas are.
