Leeto (Eric Macheru) hasn’t been cop­ing af­ter his wife Mok­gadi (Pe­betsi Mat­laila) con­fessed that she had a child in her teen years and her guilt saw her move out of their mar­i­tal house in late March 2017. Leeto’s con­cerned fa­ther John (Africa Tsoai) wants him to fix his trou­bled mar­riage on Wed­nes­day 12 April, but Leeto’s mom Meikie (Har­riet Manamela) doesn’t trust her daugh­terin-law af­ter hid­ing that se­cret from them. “The stress is get­ting to ev­ery­one and they want to find the baby,” says Eric. And while Meikie doesn’t want her daugh­ter-in-law around, Eric ex­plains that “John hopes that Leeto and Mok­gadi will sort their is­sues out. He wants to see his son happy again”.

DROWN­ING IN DE­SPAIR

With Mok­gadi gone, Leeto falls into a state of de­pres­sion on Thurs­day 13 April and his fam­ily don’t know how to get his spir­its up again. Leeto is dis­tressed on Fri­day 14 April when he opens up to his brother Tbose (Cor­net Mam­abolo) about his con­cerns about is mar­riage. “Leeto speaks his heart to Tbose and tells him that Mok­gadi hurt him. He didn’t see the se­cret com­ing and though that his mar­riage was per­fect,” re­veals Eric. While the young man blames his wife for wrecking their mar­riage, Mok­gadi blames her mom Mary (Mot­shabi Tyelele) for or­der­ing her to keep the se­cret in the first place. On Mon­day 17 April, Mary tries to get Mok­gadi and Leeto to make peace but Meikie puts her foot down. “Meikie’s never liked Mok­gadi! She doesn’t want her son around Mok­gadi or her mom – she’ll do any­thing to make sure that Leeto stays safe,” says Eric.

I WANT YOU BACK

But per­sis­tent Mok­gadi man­ages to get her hubby to an­swer her phonecalls on Fri­day 21 April and they meet at a restau­rant to try clear the air. “Mok­gadi tells Leeto the whole truth about the baby and a part of him un­der­stands why she kept the se­cret from him,” says Eric. Leeto tells his par­ents on Tues­day 25 April that he wants to work things out with his wife and his mom is against it im­me­di­ately. “She op­poses the idea of them get­ting to­gether at ev­ery chance she gets. Meikie cam­paigns for them to call it quits and she doesn’t think Mok­gadi’s good enough for Leeto,” hints Eric.

Meikie wants her son to ditch his wife. Leeto is will­ing to lis­ten to his wife Mok­gadi’s plea.
