Life was spi­ralling out of con­trol for Zama Ng­wenya (Linda Mtoba) af­ter doc­tors told her on Mon­day 27 March that her heart con­di­tion has wors­ened to the point of her need­ing trans­plant to live. She got her wish and with a healthy new heart in her chest, Zama’s got a new out­look on life and she’s ready to move for­ward with her boyfriend Jabu (Pal­lance Dladla) on Wed­nes­day 12 April.


But with a new life comes new re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and the first chal­lenge fac­ing Zama is mak­ing things right be­tween her man and his es­tranged dad Mpiyakhe (Siyabonga Twala). Linda says that “there has been some re­straint be­tween Jabu and his fa­ther be­cause of their dis­agree­ments with Zama’s fam­ily over busi­ness. It’s no se­cret that the fam­i­lies are at war with each other over the lu­cra­tive taxi in­dus­try. Since Jabu and Zama have de­cided to re­main to­gether and make things work, Zama en­cour­ages Jabu to re­pair his re­la­tion­ship with his dad at Jabu’s sis­ter Than­deka’s (Nomzamo Mbatha) umkhehlo [pre-wedding cel­e­bra­tion that takes place on Thurs­day 20 April].” She hopes that there’s a rec­on­cil­i­a­tion be­cause it will make her ap­pear to be “the glue that keeps the Zungu fam­ily to­gether”.


While Zama is be­ing wel­comed into the Zungu fam­ily on Tues­day 18 April, she must say good­bye to her own fam­ily. “It’s bit­ter­sweet for the Ng­wenya fam­ily for many rea­sons. Ju­das (Menzi Ngubane) is los­ing his the ap­ple of his eye. Qaphela (Ab­dul Khoza) is los­ing a lit­tle sis­ter and Beauty ( Thuli Thabethe) well… she’s in de­nial. Zama def­i­nitely wants to wipe the slate clean and be­gin her own life with Jabu, where there is no vi­o­lent busi­ness in­volved and if it means leav­ing her fam­ily be­hind, then so be it,” Linda re­veals.


The Zungu women are ex­cited by the prospect of a new sis­ter and daugh­ter en­ter­ing their fam­ily on Wed­nes­day 19 April, as well as an­other big wedding. As Linda ex­plains, “Jabu and Zama’s love story didn’t be­gin well. They had to go through a lot of hard­ships but they over­came the ob­sta­cles and go against the odds to be to­gether. In a way, Zama’s new heart gave her a sec­ond chance at life and she hopes that this new start is the right path.”

Zama and Jabu are mak­ing big moves.
