Busi­ness­woman Than­daza’s (Sindi Dlathu) life has slowly been get­ting back on track since es­cap­ing a re­li­gious cult in March 2016, as has her mar­riage to Ran­thu­meng (Brian Temba). But their hap­pi­ness came un­der at­tack from Mon­day 13 March when a se­ries of strange things start hap­pen­ing in the Mokoena house. On Fri­day 17 March, Than­daza goes as white as a ghost when she re­alises who’s be­hind the dis­turb­ing events: Mam-Prophet (Phumzile Mlan­geni), the leader of her for­mer cult.

SYM­BOLS & SIGNS

Brian ex­plains that the fam­ily’s in an un­com­fort­able po­si­tion: “They come home from an out­ing [on Wed­nes­day 15 March] and find dead flow­ers in the lounge. Dead flow­ers aren’t nice. It’s a sym­bol of death – a very bad omen.” Then a swarm of bees try to at­tack them on Thurs­day 16 March. “It’s a scary, al­most su­per­nat­u­ral oc­cur­rence,” says Brian. “They aren’t there to harm any­one. It’s a case of in­still­ing fear.”

SHE’S BACK

The cou­ple sus­pect that Mam-Prophet could be to blame for their trou­bles. “They al­ways knew that she’d come back to get re­venge,” Brian ex­plains. Ran­thu and Than­daza put two and two to­gether on Fri­day 17 March af­ter re­al­is­ing who they’re up against. “Than­daza shut down Mam-Prophet’s cult and slan­dered her,” Brian ex­plains. “They just didn’t think that they’d be fac­ing her this soon.” But in­stead of fac­ing Mam-Prophet head on, they go to the police on Mon­day 20 March and lay a com­plaint. “It’s best to leave this to the police,” adds Brian.

LOS­ING HER MAR­BLES

Not that some­one as pow­er­ful and dan­ger­ous as Mam-Prophet is fazed by the cops. On Wed­nes­day 22 March, she ar­rives at the Mokoena house with a warn­ing for Than­daza, which wor­ries Ran­thu. “Mam-Prophet won’t mur­der any­one,” Brian ex­plains. “But she may brain­wash a vul­ner­a­ble Than­daza and con­vince her to join her cult again. Ran­thu­meng is con­cerned be­cause if Mam-Prophet was able to take his wife from him once, she could do it again. And for good this time…”

Ran­thu is wor­ried that Mam-Prophet (left) could steal Than­daza again.
