Drive to the death

In­no­cen­tia’s not that in­no­cent – she’d kill to get MaNg­cobo out of her hus­band’s life. Uzalo Mon-Wed SABC1 (*191) 20:30

TV Plus (South Africa) - - UZALO -

In­no­cen­tia (Sthandwa Nzuza) moved to KwaMashu ex­pect­ing to be the new so­ci­ety queen. In­stead, her shady hubby Nkunzi (Ma­soja Msiza) brought an­other woman into their house on Tues­day 21 March. And that woman, Lindiwe “MaNg­cobo” Xulu (Dawn Than­deka King) isn’t just their house’s pre­vi­ous owner, she’s a mur­derer and an es­caped men­tal pa­tient. Nkunzi re­acts with rage when­ever any­one says a word against MaN­gobo and he warned In­no­cen­tia to keep her hands off Lindiwe… not that he’s obey­ing his own or­der! “In­no­cen­tia knows that if MaNg­cobo keeps hang­ing with her hus­band, she may lose him to her in a flash. She needs to act fast be­fore it’s too late,” says Sthandwa.


When In­no­cen­tia’s ef­forts to sub­tly kick MaNg­cobo out of the nest fail, she turns to witch­doc­ter Mag­waza (Lwazi Mabizela) for muti. And on Fri­day 14 April, a ter­ri­ble night­mare be­gins… but not for MaNg­cobo. Mag­waza’s got his wires crossed and in­stead of MaNg­cobo feeling the heat, it’s poor MaMlambo (Hlengiwe – played by Gugu Gumede). Out of op­tions on Wed­nes­day 19 April, an ex­as­per­ated In­no­cen­tia in­vites MaNg­cobo on a lit­tle game drive… from which only one of them will re­turn.


“When she in­vites MaNg­cobo on this spe­cial trip, she thinks that she’s got ev­ery­thing planned. In­no­cen­tia’s hop­ing to feed her ri­val to the lions and leave her dead at the lodge,” re­veals Sthandwa. As if it’s that easy to de­stroy MaNg­cobo! “They drive up to the moun­tain and In­no­cen­tia ends up point­ing a gun at MaNg­cobo, but she gets dis­tracted by her phone, giv­ing MaNg­cobo a sec­ond to pull her pep­per­spray from her bag.” MaNg­cobo whips the gun from In­no­cen­tia’s hand, knocks her un­con­scious, locks her in the car and shoves it over the cliff on Thurs­day 20 April. “Those scenes with Dawn were epic and en­ter­tain­ing,” says Sthandwa. But as MaNg­cobo finds out on Tues­day 25 April, she may have un­der­es­ti­mated her ri­val too. “It’s not the last you’ll see of In­no­cen­tia. There’s much more to come,” hints Sthandwa.

In­no­cen­tia thinks that she’s get­ting rid of her ri­val.
