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.

UN­DER PRES­SURE

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…
