Pa­ter­nity prob­lem

Preg­nant Pu­leng’s in trou­ble when Suffo de­mands a DNA test.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - RHYTHM CITY -

Just be­cause Suf­fo­cate (Mduduzi Mabaso) has left his gang­ster ways be­hind him doesn’t mean that he’s to be messed with. “He still has a tem­per and when he gets an­gry, peo­ple must run far,” ex­plains Mduduzi. But un­luck­ily for preg­nant sec­ond wife Pu­leng (Te­bogo Khalo) on Thurs­day 1 De­cem­ber, Suffo’s not let­ting her out of his sight. Not un­til she’s taken a DNA test and he has proof of who fa­thered their baby… be­cause it’s prob­a­bly not him!

WHO’S THE DADDY?

Back in June 2016, Suffo and Pu­leng learnt that a rare ge­netic com­bi­na­tion meant that Pu­leng couldn’t carry their baby to term. But since they’ve passed that all-im­por­tant date in this preg­nancy, Suffo is sus­pi­cious that his brother Themba (Sphamandla Dh­ludhlu) got Pu­leng preg­nant. And it’s not out of the ques­tion, since Suffo al­ready knows that Themba had an af­fair with his first wife Niki (Nolo Phiri) in July 2016.

“He ex­pects some­thing bad,” says Mduduzi. “He ex­pects that the test will show that he isn’t the fa­ther.” Pu­leng’s hench­man Tool­kit (Paul Maila) lets the cat out the bag on Wed­nes­day 23 Novem­ber that Themba was in town in mid- Oc­to­ber 2016 and when Suffo hears about this, he sum­mons his Aunt Ntombi­zodwa (Deli Malinga) to an­swer ques­tions about Pu­leng and Themba on Fri­day 25 Novem­ber. “Suffo is bat­tling his anger and fury,” Mduduzi re­veals. “He wants an­swers and he wants them from his wife Pu­leng too [on Mon­day 28 and Tues­day 29 Novem­ber].”

DEVIL ON SUFFO’S SHOUL­DER

Mean­while, Niki is tak­ing full ad­van­tage of her ri­val’s bad luck. She’s been in Suffo’s bad books since he kicked her out in late Septem­ber 2016 for her af­fair but now she’s us­ing this op­por­tu­nity to get close to Suffo again. On Mon­day 5 De­cem­ber, she even goes so far as to sug­gest to Pu­leng that she tell Suffo the truth be­cause he’s go­ing to find out any­way. “Pu­leng has al­ways been the voice of rea­son for Suf­fo­cate,” adds Mduduzi. “I don’t think that he’ll go as far as mur­der, but he needs to know the an­swers. He needs to know if he is go­ing to be a fa­ther or not.” And those an­swers could be just around the cor­ner as Suffo forces Pu­leng to take the DNA test on Tues­day 6 De­cem­ber…
