As if the Wel­man fam­ily’s lives aren’t messy enough thanks to cheat­ing scan­dals and lies through­out 2016, worse could be on the way. And it’s got some­thing to do with pa­tri­arch Chris’s (David Rees) past and lawyer Lesedi (KB Mot­si­lanyane), who moved into Hill­side in April this year. What­ever it is [we know but we’ve been sworn to se­crecy] has Chris in a panic, es­pe­cially be­cause his wife Mari­aan (Deirdre Wol­huter) is like a blood­hound sniff­ing down the tini­est of scents.

COOL AS A CU­CUM­BER

Chris and Lesedi teamed up in early May and he’s men­tor­ing her in the busi­ness world, bring­ing her on some of his con­struc­tion projects. View­ers will be able to pick up some­thing in the air be­tween them, al­most like there’s a link some­where. It’s not Mari­aan that Chris should worry about, it’s his ad­min man­ager Ag­gie (Mimi Mahlasela). On Wednesday 24 May, while sort­ing his pa­per­work in Op­piekoffie, she comes across a doc­u­ment show­ing that Chris paid for Lesedi’s stud­ies anony­mously through a Trust. Loose-lip Ag­gie lets slip to Char­maine ( Vinette Ebrahim) about her dis­cov­ery and on Thurs­day 25 May Char­maine bumps into Lesedi in the book­shop and tells her about the find. “Lesedi is speech­less. She knows noth­ing about this,” says KB. Later that day when she goes to the Beleef deli, Lesedi is cool, calm and col­lected when she sees Chris. “They start talk­ing about work and she non­cha­lantly thanks him for pay­ing her var­sity tu­ition,” re­veals KB. Chris is taken by sur­prise but down­plays it and says that the Trustees made the de­ci­sion, not him.

WHAT THE CON­NEC­TION?

7de Laan’s pro­duc­ers have been tightlipped on the link be­tween Chris and Lesedi, but Deirdre shed a lit­tle light on the mat­ter. “Lesedi’s dad Jacob (Pa­trick Shai) was child­hood friends with Chris and had worked on the Wel­man fam­ily farm for years.” On Mon­day 29 May, Chris starts hav­ing night­mares and screams Lesedi and Jacob’s names in his sleep, wak­ing up Mari­aan who then asks her sleep­ing hubby a few ques­tions in the hope that he’ll tell her the truth. Be­fore say­ing any­thing more, Chris wakes up and Mari­aan’s go­ing to have to wait un­til Wednesday 31 May for the truth when she con­fronts Chris and Lesedi. And it’s a whop­per!

Lesedi’s obliv­i­ous to any link to Chris. Mari­aan’s go­ing to do dig­ging into her hubby Chris’s past.
