Charity’s return brings unwanted scandal to her family.
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.
