Se­cret love

Mrekza and Lucy keep their ro­mance on the down-low.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - GENERATIONS – THE LEGACY -

Town­ship bad-guy Mrekza (Kope Ma­gae) is up­set when his boss Lucy (Manaka Ranaka) ig­nores his calls on Thurs­day 27 April. He knows that it’s prob­a­bly be­cause she’s be­ing care­ful not to re­veal any­thing about their new ro­mance to her med­dling mom Gog’Flo (Ivy Nkutha) and brother Cosmo (Ron­nie Diale), who don’t like or trust Mrezka one bit. But Lucy does – she fell for him af­ter he played her knight in shin­ing ar­mour when she was desperate and dateless for the Busi­ness­woman Of The Year Awards on Fri­day 7 April. “And their ro­mance de­vel­oped from there. Lucy helped him pay his debts in ex­change for him es­cort­ing her to the event – which is where the chem­istry be­tween them be­came clear,” says Kope.


Lucy pan­ics on Fri­day 28 April when she learns about Gog’Flo’s poor health and “Mrekza is mind­ful of the sit­u­a­tion,” says Kope. He re­alises that now is a re­ally bad time to go public with their ro­mance, “So he sym­pa­thises with Lucy and uses his street smarts to hide their re­la­tion­ship.” But Cosmo, who co-owns the Diale fam­ily fast-food restau­rant isn’t cop­ing with the stress of his mom’s ill­ness and he takes out his frus­tra­tions on the restau­rant staff later on Mon­day 1 May. Equip­ment and in­gre­di­ents have been dis­ap­pear­ing from the restau­rant for a while and in his anger, Cosmo in­sin­u­ates that the wait­ers are the thieves. But be­hind the scenes, it’s a dif­fer­ent story…


Cosmo sus­pects that his restau­rant man­ager Mrekza is the cul­prit and when Lucy finds out, she has no choice but to de­fend him. She knows an­other side of Mrekza and she’s con­vinced that he wouldn’t de­stroy her busi­ness. Lucy plucks up the courage and pro­tects him on Fri­day 5 May with­out let­ting their se­cret slip. But on Tues­day 9 May, Gog’Flo spots the two love­birds to­gether and re­alises what’s go­ing on. She is dis­ap­pointed and im­me­di­ately also breaks the news to Cosmo, who’s “fu­ri­ous,” Kope ex­plains. “Cosmo isn’t pleased with the idea of his em­ploy­ees dat­ing his sis­ter and he wants to de­stroy their re­la­tion­ship.” Cosmo’s plans to fire Mrekza just bring the two lovers closer, “But there are more ups and downs ahead,” warns Kope…

Cosmo’s not let­ting his sis­ter date “the help”. Mrekza is a dif­fer­ent guy when he’s with Lucy.
