Dig­ging deep

Nikiwe wants her fa­ther Lin­coln to pay for his crimes.

Nikiwe has rea­son to smile: her dad’s lies have caught up to him at long last. Week­days SABC3 (*193) 19:00

The Sibekos’ power has been on the wane ever since Katlego’s (Kgomotso Christo­pher) bones were dis­cov­ered in a mi­ne­shaft in Septem­ber 2016. Her mur­derer hubby Lin­coln (Lin­dani Nkosi) was ar­rested on Fri­day 2 De­cem­ber and the cops hauled him off in front of his daughter Nikiwe (Linda Sokhulu) at the Sibeko Gold of­fices. Not that she tried to save him – Nikiwe’s glad that he’s in jail.


Lin­coln is re­leased on Wed­nes­day 21 De­cem­ber un­der po­lice watch and he lashes out at Nikiwe, ac­cus­ing her of be­ing weak and tip­ping off the cops. Linda says that Nikiwe sees Lin­coln’s true colours and “she re­alises that he is a self­ish, self- cen­tred man who chose to hide the mur­der of his wife”. Tak­ing Lin­coln by sur­prise, Nikiwe fights back on Thurs­day 22 De­cem­ber and tells him that “I’m done cov­er­ing up your lies. You’re on your own!”


Lin­coln thinks that Nikiwe is just frus­trated but on Fri­day 23 De­cem­ber he re­alises just how alone he is when he’s home in the pent­house with no one to talk to. In a mo­ment of doubt, Lin­coln turns to the one con­stant in his life – his child’s nanny Zuk­isa (No­luthando Nqayi). “She sees the pos­i­tive in ev­ery­one,” says Linda. “She takes pity on him, whereas Nikiwe doesn’t have the heart to em­pathise with her fa­ther’s plight.” What Zuk­isa doesn’t re­alise on Fri­day 23 De­cem­ber is that Lin­coln’s be­ing nice be­cause he’s look­ing for al­lies in his fu­ture court war…


Lin­coln’s world is fall­ing apart. Lin­coln is wary of po­ten­tial wit­nesses that the cops may call to tes­tify in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary 2017 – es­pe­cially Nikiwe. “Her loy­alty no longer lies with Lin­coln,” ex­plains Linda. “She is fin­ished help­ing her dad look good in the pub­lic eye and busi­ness world.” Nikiwe isn’t Lin­coln’s only prob­lem – on Tues­day 3 Jan­uary, lead de­tec­tive Ed­die (Paul Buckby) and jour­nal­ist Calvin (Mau­rice Paige) are keep­ing an eye on Lin­coln to see if he slips up. If only they knew that Nikiwe knew all his dirty se­crets and that she could be eas­ily turned…
