Re­la­tion­ships usu­ally work out when the peo­ple are hon­est with each other. That’s what Zitha (Zoe Mthiyane) had in mind when she con­fessed to her new boyfriend and busi­ness part­ner Tau (Ra­pu­lana Seiphemo) on Tues­day 23 May that she’s the daugh­ter of his dead ri­val Zola (Mu­todi Neshehe). “Tau doesn’t take it well,” ex­plains Zoe. “Zitha tries to hold onto him but noth­ing works.” Not even her des­per­ate grov­el­ling to win him back on Fri­day 26 June.

Zitha hopes that Tau will take her back and she’s not giving up on that, but on Mon­day 29 May “he’s hav­ing none of it. De­spite Zitha’s per­sis­tence, Tau wants noth­ing to do with her,” says Zoe. “He pushes her away at ev­ery chance.” Zitha knows that her father is a sore point for Tau be­cause Zola mar­ried Tau’s wife Karabo (Con­nie Fer­gu­son) in early 2016. Tau hated the fact that he was so in­ca­pable of keep­ing his wife happy that Karabo resorted to tak­ing a sec­ond hus­band while still mar­ried to him. Tau doesn’t know that his busi­ness part­ner Jack Mabaso (Vusi Kunene) killed Zola be­fore he could ex­pose Jack’s dodgy de­vel­op­ment deal, but learn­ing that Zitha is Zola’s daugh­ter isn’t just a lie, it’s added heart­break. “He feels be­trayed. He thought she was some­one he could trust,” says Zoe, who adds that “their re­la­tion­ship is real. Zoe re­ally cares for Tau and wants to make things work”.

Tau can’t avoid Zitha for­ever. Af­ter all, he’s in­volved with her con­struc­tion projects and on Fri­day 2 June, Zitha uses work as a rea­son to meet. “She hopes that she can con­vince him to take her back by re­build­ing his trust through busi­ness,” says Zoe. While she puts on a brave face in Tau’s pres­ence, Zitha’s strug­gling at home and leans on her sis­ter Wandile (Chi Mhende). “Wandile has al­ways sup­port­ive of her and con­tin­ues to be Zitha’s sound­ing board,” says Zoe, adding that “we get to see a vul­ner­a­ble side to strong Zitha that she hardly shows”.

Zoe hints that June will see “the past come knock­ing on the door” later in June and it could bring them back to­gether or end it for­ever.

Zitha tells Tau who she re­ally is. Tau is speech­less at the reve­la­tion.
