Namhla’s got a scheme up her sleeve to rescue Zach from the cop trouble that she started.

Usually dodgy hacker Zach (Mxolisi Masango) can get himself out of any sticky situation. But not this time round – he’s in a lot deeper than he realises. He blames his new girlfriend Namhla (Thulisile Phongolo) on Wednesday 21 June when he’s arrested. “He can’t stand the sight of Namhla,” says Mxolisi. “He went looking for her and ended up in jail.” Namhla has been working with the cops to get her gangster boss Gadaffi ( Vuyo Dabula) in jail and Mxolisi says “Zach was in the wrong place, at the wrong time”. With no evidence to keep him in jail, the cops let him go later on Wednes-day 21 June but with a warning: they know that he works for Gadaffi and will be keeping an eye on him. “Right now, his focus is to stay away from Namhla as much as he can,” adds Mxolisi.
BACK TO THE WALL
Hacker Zach knows that he’s going to have a difficult time running away from the cops on Tuesday 27 June – they’re watching him to see if he slips up with Gadaffi and they’ll pounce. They want information about Gadaffi’s illegal deals and “Zach is in a tight spot. He refuses to rat out Gadaffi and it’s frustrating to the cops,” says Mxolisi. The cops have been after Gadaffi for years but there weren’t witnesses who’d stand up to him in court if he was prosecuted for fraud and murder. The cops believe that they’ve got their rat now and with his help, Gadaffi will be behind bars. “Zach is scared of getting on Gadaffi’s bad side. He’s seen what Gadaffi does to his enemies and doesn’t want to be on his hitlist,” explains Mxolisi.
AGAINST THE CLOCK
Meanwhile, Namhla does feel guilty for dragging Zach into her mess but she’s trying to save her bacon on Friday 30 June and tries to trick him. “She wants him to take the police deal but Zach makes it clear that he isn’t snitching on Gadaffi,” says Mxolisi. Namhla knows that she shouldn’t have got mixed up with the cops but “they threatened to come after her family, who’re criminals. So Zach was the best option because she is just as scared of Gadaffi,” says Mxolisi. It’s going to take a lot more than just convincing though for Zach to forgive Namhla.
Namhla and Zach’s relationship is being ruined by their boss Gadaffi and the cops.
