Ex-con Ace (Sello Se­bot­sane) has waved good­bye to prison in new soap Bro­ken Vows (2017-cur­rent) and hello to fix­ing his bro­ken fam­ily and mak­ing money. His main mis­sion is to win back the trust of his chil­dren Aza­nia and Uhuru (Enhle Ma­phu­mulo and Thapelo Mok­wena), one good deed at a time. “Ace is ma­nip­u­la­tive and uses peo­ple’s emo­tions to get them on his side,” says Sello.

Like when he learns that his ex-foot­baller son-in-law Chris (Em­manuel Castis), who’s ad­dicted to painkillers, has driven over a home­less man on Wed­nes­day 10 May. Ace plots to save Chris so that he can be with Aza­nia when their baby is born. “He’s shocked [about Chris’s ad­dic­tion is­sues] but Ace wants him free. He will do any­thing to give Aza­nia her happy fam­ily,” says Sello.

The cops ar­rive on Thurs­day 11 May and Ace tells Chris to deny all charges. While Chris tries to get help with his ad­dic­tion on Fri­day 12 May, Ace has his so­lu­tion: fram­ing his part­ner in crime Harold’s (Peter Terry) son [whom we won’t see on­screen]. “Ace doesn’t care if it’s right or wrong to let an­other per­son rot in jail for this. He just wants his fam­ily to­gether and to pick up where they left off,” ex­plains Sello.

On Mon­day 15 May, Ace lends preg­nant Aza­nia a help­ing hand with plan­ning her babyshower, of all things. Ace now has the op­por­tu­nity to play dot­ing dad af­ter be­ing in jail while Aza­nia grew up and also give her a present: a clean and sober Chris. And Ace al­ways gets what he wants. On Fri­day 19 May, he threat­ens Chris and or­ders him to go to re­hab and Sello ex­plains that “Ace is try­ing to be a fa­ther to Aza­nia now and a grand­fa­ther. He will stop at noth­ing”. Best Chris re­mem­ber that when he skips re­hab… NB! See p33.

Ace is keep­ing an eye out for his daugh­ter Aza­nia. Chris is adding to the drama.
