With great power comes great responsibility and that’s what Rendani (Innocentia Makapila) is living by. After putting her career first after graduating from university in early 2017, she’s now gunning for the COO position in construction business MMC. But Rendani’s brother and current CEO Ndalamo (Lesley Musina) isn’t all that pleased with his little sister’s newfound confidence.
“Rendani is now a COO-in-training and Ndalamo’s frenemy KK (Macdonald Ndou) has taken her under his wing to teach her the business ropes,” says Innocentia. “Clients have taken a liking to Rendani and she’s doing well. When Ndalamo sees this, he gets jealous and picks a fight with Rendani [on Thursday 27 April].” It’s during the verbal argument between brother and sister that Ndalamo sees a change in Rendani. As Innocentia explains, “He sees that Rendani isn’t a little girl anymore and that she is now assertive and determined to get ahead in business.”
Meanwhile, KK is revelling in his plans to break up the Mukwevho family from Friday 28 April. “KK is very well aware of the fact that Rendani is easy to manipulate and that he can pit her and Ndalamo against each other,” adds Innocentia. One of KK’s tactics is to pour fuel on the flame and tell Rendani that Ndalamo is jealous and intimidated by her. When Rendani hears this, she becomes super confident and tries to outshine Ndalamo in the boardroom on Wednesday 3 May.
However, the stress between the siblings is affecting the family, specifically their mother Hangwani (Constance Sibiya) on Friday 5 May. “When Rendani and Ndalamo go home, they are still fighting. It’s like there is a wall between them and neither are on speaking terms with the other. What they don’t realise is that they’re putting their mother Hangwani in an awkward position and she refuses to take sides,” says Innocentia. On Monday 8 May, Ndalamo airs some of his grievances about Rendani to the board, highlighting those related to business as Innocentia hints. “Ndalamo is worried that his sister will surpass him as CEO because she’s good at her work and she has MMC shares that she inherited from her late father Albert (Ndivhuho Mutsila) that gives her major power.”
There won’t be smiles when Rendani and Ndalamo are done with each other.
