Char­ity’s re­turn brings un­wanted scan­dal to her fam­ily.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SKEEM SAAM -

Char­ity Ram­abu (Mak­gofe Moagi) has been in Scot­land for some time with her son Joseph (Naol Yi­mam) so that he could be closer to his dad Ker­rin (Jannes Eislen). Or so that’s what her fam­ily’s been told. But guess what – Char­ity’s been ly­ing and she is caught out on Tues­day 29 Novem­ber.

SE­CRETS & LIES

“Jojo ar­rives home in Tur­floop alone. This wor­ries his granny Koko (Ly­dia Mok­gokoloshi) and older brother Kat (Pa­trick Seleka),” ex­plains Mak­gofe. “Af­ter nu­mer­ous missed phonecalls, they get hold of Char­ity overseas and she pre­tends that ev­ery­thing is okay.” She tells them on Wed­nes­day 30 Novem­ber and Thurs­day 1 De­cem­ber that “‘No, Jojo is fine and he misses every­one at home’, but then they say to her, ‘Why are you ly­ing? Joseph is here – where are you?’” That’s when Char­ity knows that the jig is up and that she has to go home and face the mu­sic. And it’s not go­ing to sit well with Char­ity’s fam­ily, who give her an ice-cold wel­come home on Mon­day 5 De­cem­ber. “She’s been hav­ing an af­fair with Ivan [who’s not seen on­screen],” ex­plains Mak­gofe. “He is Ker­rin’s best friend and kind of like a fam­ily friend. There were ru­mours of an af­fair last year but she flat-out de­nied it. But it was true!” So while Joseph’s been spend­ing time with his dad in Scot­land, Char­ity’s been shack­ing up with Ivan in Lon­don while every­one else has been obliv­i­ous to her se­cret life.

IN THE DOGBOX

Char­ity’s fam­ily aren’t im­pressed with her ac­tions, Mak­gofe re­veals. “They can­not be­lieve what she’s done – it’s not only a disgrace to them but it’s another fail­ure on her CV. She’s got a failed mar­riage, a failed busi­ness and a failed fam­ily.” But Char­ity can’t keep run­ning from her prob­lems and start­ing on Wed­nes­day 7 De­cem­ber, she’s go­ing to have to con­front her lies and try fix her cur­rent sit­u­a­tion.

Char­ity’s home but she’s not go­ing to feel wel­come at all.
