The say­ing goes that “the truth will set you free”. That’s def­i­nitely not the case for Thandi (Jo-Anne Reyneke), be­cause telling her truth has only man­aged to cre­ate more drama in her life. The Moswanes, who adopted Thandi as a baby, re­sent her for ex­pos­ing her ex- con­vict dad Ace (Sello Se­bot­sane) for rap­ing her as a teen. “Thandi does re­gret telling them,” ex­plains Jo-Anne. “Ev­ery­one thinks that she’s try­ing to de­stroy the fam­ily.” Thandi con­fronts her adop­tive mom Gerty (Thembi Mt­shali-Jones) on Wed­nes­day 21 June for con­vinc­ing her to keep quiet for so long. “If Thandi had spo­ken sooner, the fam­ily wouldn’t be in shreds,” says Jo-Anne.

DON’T DARE

But while Thandi’s on a quest to ex­pose Ace to the world on Thurs­day 22 June, he’s on a mis­sion to de­stroy her too. “Ace is an­gry! He wants to take Thandi down and re­claim his fam­ily af­ter he’d spent so much time in jail,” Jo-Anne says. Thandi’s best-friend sis­ter Aza­nia (Enhle Maphumulo) thinks that she’s ly­ing about Ace rap­ing her. Aza­nia is try­ing to make up for lost time with her dad and Ace has been help­ing her mend her bro­ken mar­riage with pre­scrip­tion drug-ad­dict Chris (Em­manuel Castis). “She thinks that Thandi is try­ing to take all of that away from her,” ex­plains Joanne. She adds that on Thurs­day 27 June, “Aza­nia wants noth­ing to do with Thandi and she says hurt­ful things to her. It’s a huge mess and Thandi feels re­spon­si­ble for ru­in­ing her sis­terly bond with Aza­nia.”

ABOVE BOARD

The Moswanes are a fam­ily di­vided on Thurs­day 29 June and Thandi’s adop­tive brother and boyfriend Uhuru (Thapelo Mok­wena) is us­ing his journo skills to in­ves­ti­gate her rape claims. Thandi won­ders if Uhuru doesn’t be­lieve her ver­sion of the story, but Jo-Anne as­sures us that “their ro­mance isn’t lost. They love each other but Uhuru is caught be­tween be­liev­ing his dad or sup­port­ing his girl­friend”. The sup­port from Uhuru gives Thandi drive on Fri­day 30 June to prove that she isn’t ly­ing and that Ace isn’t a changed man af­ter his time in prison. “She wants Ace to pay for tak­ing power from her when she was a kid,” warns Jo-Anne. “She won’t stop un­til he’s back where he be­longs!”

Thandi’s on her own af­ter she ac­cuses her dad of rape. Will Ace get the last laugh?
