And baby al­most makes three…

Mu­lalo’s brood­i­ness sends his wife Te­boho schem­ing.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MUVHANGO -

If be­ing mayor of Thathe wasn’t keep­ing Mu­lalo (Sydney Ra­makuela) busy enough, he’s also got his hands full with the women in his life: his wife Te­boho (Lite­boho Molise) and his mis­tress Shon­isani (Tshi­nondiwa Thovhakale), who’s also dat­ing lo­cal witch­doc­tor Mulim­isi (Hum­bu­lani Tsha­rani). The ladies are at odds, fight­ing for Mu­lalo’s at­ten­tion, but Te­boho gets an idea to keep her man on Mon­day 8 May: an heir.

WIFE vs MIS­TRESS

Te­boho suf­fered a mis­car­riage a cou­ple of years ago and she’s been bit­ter ever since. She takes a gam­ble and vis­its her doc­tor on Tues­day 9 May, hop­ing that she will get good news: that she’s able to con­ceive. But as Sydney re­veals, luck isn’t on her side. “She’s un­able to have chil­dren and that pains Te­boho even more as she knows that her hus­band is ea­ger to start a fam­ily.” While she’s as cun­ning as a fox, Te­boho is well aware that a younger and more fer­tile Shoni would be a more favourable op­tion to Mu­lalo af­ter she tells him about her doc­tor’s ap­point­ment on Wed­nes­day 10 May. “At this point, it is a very real con­cern for Te­boho,” ad­mits Sydney. “There is al­ways that chance while there is an­other woman in his life.”

A BABY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS

But just like magic – and maybe with a lit­tle di­vine in­ter­ven­tion from the an­ces­tors in Thathe – a baby lands on Mu­lalo and Te­boho’s doorstep the very next day, on Thurs­day 11 May. Mu­lalo is stunned, as Sydney ex­plains. “This baby boy be­ing left at their door is ac­tu­ally a case of mis­taken iden­tity. The woman who left it there con­fused Mu­lalo the mayor with the baby’s real fa­ther, an­other Mu­lalo also liv­ing in Thathe.” Try tak­ing the tot away from dot­ing Mu­lalo though. He en­joys car­ing for the baby so much that by later that day, he’s con­sid­er­ing adop­tion.

Not that Te­boho is pleased with this turn of events when her hus­band tells her. “She’s be­yond an­gry,” says Sydney, “an­gry that her hus­band is crazy over some­one else’s child. Her plan was to give him a child of their own flesh and blood, but now she’s told that he is al­ready plan­ning to change his will to in­clude this baby who be­longs to some­one else. No way!”

RE­TURN OF THE MAMA

Mu­lalo go­ing goo­goo for the baby is short-lived though be­cause the mother re­turns on Tues­day 16 May. She re­alised her mis­take and she’s back to take her son to its right­ful fa­ther – the other Mu­lalo. “He’s sad and dis­ap­pointed,” Sydney re­veals. “He ac­tu­ally re­fuses to part with the baby that he’s grown so fond of [in less than a week] and he’s fu­ri­ous that its mother could be so reck­less.” Re­al­is­ing that the law won’t be on his side – and tak­ing his po­si­tion as mayor into con­sid­er­a­tion – Mu­lalo gives the baby back. That doesn’t mean that he’s giv­ing up on his dreams of fa­ther­hood. In fact, it might just be the jolt he needs to look for a baby­mama away from home…

Mu­lalo and Te­boho won’t be smil­ing when their own baby dreams go down the drain.

Will Shon­isani be able to give Mu­lalo what he wants?
