Sibeko Gold bigwig Lincoln Sibeko (Lindani Nkosi) faces his demons in court when he takes to stand from Wednesday 1 March. While viewers know that he murdered his wife Katlego (Kgomotso Christopher) early last year, Horizon Deep is only going by evidence and Lincoln’s fate is in the court’s hands. But how is Lincoln’s lawyer Angie (Shannon Esra) approaching her defence plan?
IN TWO MINDS
“This is conflicting for Angie – she was hired to prevent Lincoln from going to prison, but at the same time she knows that’s where he belongs because he did kill Katlego,” says Shannon. Angie’s plan to save Lincoln kicks off on Thursday 2 March when she ask Lincoln some very tough questions. “Angie is determined to be a good lawyer and she’s fighting to win this case, but she also wants the legal system to work. But for that to happen, she needs to do a fair job in court,” adds Shannon.
SPEAK THE TRUTH
The Deep is buzzing about the trial on Friday 3 March and the stress that it’s bringing to the community, but Angie is staying strong and focussed on her task – she’s leaving no stone unturned and that includes putting her client’s daughter Nikiwe (Linda Sokhulu) and housekeeper Zukisa (Noluthando Nqayi) on the stand, as well as cop Eddie (Paul Buckby) and Kat’s brother Tyson (Shona Ferguson). “Justice can be done and Angie’s making sure it is. But there’s another reason too – she’s trying to impress her secret lover Tyson and get him what he wants: a conviction for Lincoln,” Shannon says. And if he’s not careful, Lincoln could be staring at a 25-to-life prison sentence if Angie doesn’t prove his innocence.
Lincoln fears that he’s not going to win his case and on Wednesday 8 March he starts hallucinating. He sees a figure that looks like Katlego and Shannon explains that “Lincoln’s under a lot of scrutiny – but they’re consequences of his actions”. Lincoln’s never been one to show weakness but with all the stress of his trial mounting, it seems the businessman is about to crack…
