Whis­pers have reached the Langa kids Chu­mani (Ayanda Daweti) and sis­ter Xoli (Sive­nathi Mabuya) back in Bisho in the Eastern Cape. And alarm bells ring when their mom Bon­iswa (Lu­sanda Mbane) re­turns tightlipped af­ter vis­it­ing their dad Siseko (Hlomla Dan­dala). “She doesn’t ex­plain, but we see that our mom is not feel­ing well; she’s not happy,” re­veals Ayanda. “So we go to Joburg to find out what has hap­pened.” But Siseko’s con­fes­sion about his af­fair with Yvonne Thebe (Kgomotso Christo­pher) on Fri­day 26 May will di­vide his fam­ily.

FU­RI­OUS XOLI

Xoli con­fronts Yvonne on Mon­day 29 May. “Her re­la­tion­ship with her father is al­ready strained be­cause he hasn’t re­ally been there for them,” ex­plains Sive­nathi. “This is the last straw, know­ing that he be­trayed their mother and their trust. She be­lieves her mother to be a typ­i­cal Xhosa woman – cul­tured and re­spectable. Yvonne is com­pletely dif­fer­ent and that changes her per­spec­tive of who her father is.” Xoli’s at­tack on Yvonne is not just about her own pain though. “It’s about fight­ing for her mother’s dig­nity and her fam­ily’s im­age,” says Sive­nathi. And she’s deeply hurt by what she sees as her brother sid­ing with her father. “She feels as if he’s pick­ing the wrong side. She feels as if she is the only sane per­son in this en­tire sit­u­a­tion!”

CAU­TIOUS CHU­MANI

But Ayanda ex­plains that there’s more at play than Xoli sees. “Chu­mani is not as quick to re­act as his sis­ter. He lis­tens, not jump­ing to con­clu­sions. He looks up to his father. He never thought of him this way.” Chu­mani also has an eye to his own fu­ture. “He wants to un­der­stand be­cause maybe as a man, he’ll also go through sim­i­lar chal­lenges and if he un­der­stands, maybe he can over­come them,” ex­plains Ayanda. “It’s not only the cheat­ing. He finds out in Joburg that his dad’s been in­volved in some il­le­gal machi­na­tions. He has to look into this be­cause he knows that our father wouldn’t do such a thing…”
