7 De­cem­ber

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIEMENU -

Mis­chief-mak­ers Kamo and Obak­eng (Mak­gotso M and Anga Makubalo) had an un­pro­tected-sex one-night stand in Novem­ber 2016 and in true TV fash­ion, Kamo’s preg­nant overnight… by Thurs­day 8 De­cem­ber to be ex­act! Shocked, the 19-year-old tries to hide it but that’s go­ing to be tough af­ter she faints at the she­been on Fri­day 9 De­cem­ber.

Wor­ried she­been boss Nina (Khabon­ina Qubeka) rushes Kamo to the clinic and the doc­tor blurts out that Kamo is preg­nant. “Nina’s shocked when Kamo tells her that Nina’s son Obak­eng is the dad,” says Mak­gotso. “Nina tries to con­vince Kamo that the best so­lu­tion for ev­ery­one is an abor­tion.” Kamo con­sid­ers Nina’s “so­lu­tion” and con­fides in her spoilt-teen pal Jody Haines (Gar­ion Dowds) on Wed­nes­day 14 De­cem­ber. He gives her money for the abor­tion that same day, but first Kamo wants to tell Obak­eng on Thurs­day 15 De­cem­ber. “He’s stunned,” ex­plains Mak­gotso. “He keeps ask­ing her if she’s sure that he’s the fa­ther. Obak­eng is in de­nial.” Af­ter that re­sponse, Kamo’s too scared to tell any­one else, in­clud­ing her sis­ter Ler­ato (Tema Se­bo­pedi), but her con­science kicks in on Tues­day 20 De­cem­ber. “She thinks an abor­tion isn’t right and rais­ing the baby with or with­out Obak­eng will still be good. She’s a teen and will need all the sup­port she can get from those around her,” says Mak­gotso.

Ler­ato is dis­ap­pointed in Kamo but she stands by her younger sis­ter. As for Obak­eng, what will he say when he hears about Kamo’s change of mind? “We’ll have to see, but let’s just say that there is go­ing to be a lot of hard­ship with this baby,” ex­plains Mak­gotso, adding that this sto­ry­line “is a very real is­sue and en­cour­ages teens to prac­tice safe sex to pre­vent un­wanted preg­nan­cies”.
