Puleng wants to get rid of Themba when she finds evidence that her ex-lover is also her stalker.
Pregnant Puleng (Tebogo Khalo) is terrified on Wednesday 26 April after her washing goes missing. It means that the stalker who’s been following her since Friday 21 April is getting closer and while she wants to tell the police, her troubled babydaddy and brother-in-law Themba (Sphamandla Dhludhlu) stops her. “He tells Puleng that she doesn’t have evidence to get the stalker arrested,” says Tebogo, and Themba offers to protect her. While Puleng’s adjusting to having a “bodyguard”, her ex-sister-wife Niki (Nolo Phiri) isn’t sold on Themba’s good-guy act on Friday 28 April and confronts him for being the stalker. “He takes offense to her accusations. Themba is good at hiding his sly ways and Puleng is oblivious,” adds Tebogo.

As a personal protector, Puleng grows to the idea of playing happy family with her brother-in-law once their baby arrives, but on Monday 1 May, she accidentally finds her underwear in Themba’s jacket and “she’s livid! Puleng thinks that he’s crazy and believes that her life is in danger,” Tebogo explains. A worried Puleng asks her estranged hubby Suffocate (Mduduzi Mabaso) on Wednesday 3 May to get rid of his brother but “Suffo is confused. He wants to help but he doesn’t want to get close to Puleng as he’s still dealing with his brother fathering his wife’s unborn child,” says Tebogo, whose character cheated with Themba in September 2016 when she and Suffo struggled to conceive. “Suffo tells her that he will help but his concern is to a new life with Niki,” says Tebogo.
Puleng is out of ideas on how to get rid of Themba on Tuesday 9 May but he’s determined to keep her close to him. “Themba asks Puleng to move in and when she rejects him, he locks her in his house,” says Tebogo. He is holding Puleng hostage and the heavily pregnant woman is overly anxious for her unborn baby’s life as she’s just days from giving birth. Tebogo adds that the situation is worsened because “Themba goes psycho. He doesn’t want to lose Puleng and that it drives him wild”.
