El­iz­a­beth (Amanda Manku) wants Lelo (Amanda du-Pont) to pay for mak­ing her boyfriend Man­gal­iso (Bon­gani Ma­sondo) think that she’s us­ing drugs and then steal­ing him from her. Lizzy is fu­ri­ous and is fo­cussing on re­venge, but her voiceof-rea­son mom Prin­ci­pal Thobak­gale (El­iz­a­beth Serunye) in­ter­venes on Wed­nes­day 15 March and ad­vises her daugh­ter to move on and re­build her life rather than waste her time and en­ergy on tak­ing re­venge. “She hopes that her daugh­ter will let by­gones be by­gones, for­get about Lelo and let Man­gal­iso go for good,” says El­iz­a­beth.

MOV­ING ON

Man­gal­iso still has a soft spot for Lizzy but he can’t imag­ine a life with­out his daugh­ter Nosi (Mbalenhle Tabu) – and that means his baby­mama Lelo. She threat­ened to take Nosi away in early March if Man­gal­iso didn’t dump Lizzy for her and Lelo goes one bet­ter on Mon­day 20 March by get­ting Man­gal­iso to agree to marry her. News trav­els quickly to Tur­floop and by Tues­day 21 March, Prin­ci­pal Thobak­gale hears about the en­gage­ment and wor­ries what it will do to her daugh­ter.

“Prin­ci­pal Thobak­gale wasn’t happy about Lizzy and Man­gal­iso dat­ing [in late 2015],” El­iz­a­beth says, “be­cause she thinks that he is be­neath her daugh­ter. She wants Lizzy to be the best that she can be. She al­ways had high goals for her and un­til she got with Man­gal­iso, Lizzy lived an ex­em­plary life.” Be­hind Prin­ci­pal Thobak­gale’s doubts about Man­gal­iso, which led to the mom and daugh­ter’s re­la­tion­ship be­ing strained, lies love and a deep con­cern as she doesn’t want to see Lizzy get­ting hurt. And she knew that there was a good chance that this would hap­pen if Lizzy was dat­ing Man­gal­iso. “Her fears are com­ing true but Prin­ci­pal Thobak­gale will pro­tect Lizzy where Man­gal­iso and Lelo are con­cerned,” El­iz­a­beth re­veals.

LEAD­ING THE WAY

She isn’t the only wor­ried mom. Man­gal­iso’s mother Mrs Sang­weni (Faith Kekana) ar­rives on Thurs­day 23 March to meet her fu­ture daugh­ter-in-law but she’s un­happy about what her son is get­ting into, es­pe­cially af­ter learn­ing of Lelo’s prison past on Fri­day 24 March. Later that day, Mrs Sang­weni an­nounces that her fam­ily won’t be part of the lobola ne­go­ti­a­tions and El­iz­a­beth says that “all moms want their chil­dren to be the best they can be. And both of these ladies feel that is not pos­si­ble for their chil­dren with Lelo in the pic­ture.”

Lizzy will fall apart at the news about Man­gal­iso. Prin­ci­pal Thobak­gale knows the dam­age that could be done to her daugh­ter.
