Thandaza (Sindi Dlathu) and James (Din­gaan Mokebe) have been run­ning con­struc­tion com­pany Basadi since Thandaza was fired from ri­val firm MMC in 2015. But that part­ner­ship faces new pres­sures on Mon­day 24 July when Thandaza learns that money is miss­ing. So what now for the CEO and head of mar­ket­ing James?

MONEY IS A WORRY

“The au­di­tors tell Thandaza that the books aren’t adding up and that a big sum of money has van­ished,” ex­plains Din­gaan. And the trail leads to James’s mar­ket­ing di­vi­sion. Din­gaan re­veals that his char­ac­ter is “kicked out his of­fice” on Thurs­day 27 July by or­ders from the au­di­tors. “James feels em­bar­rassed and ashamed in front of his co­work­ers,” says Din­gaan. At this point, James doesn’t know why he is be­ing forced out of the build­ing and it’s up to Thandaza to tell him the truth.

FRIEND­SHIP OVER

Ten­sions sim­mer on Fri­day 28 July as Thandaza comes clean with him about the miss­ing money that the audit has re­vealed. “James is shocked when she tells him what’s go­ing on. And he is fu­ri­ous be­cause Thandaza is im­ply­ing that he has been mis­han­dling or even steal­ing money from Basadi,” ex­plains the ac­tor. The fi­nan­cial woes cre­ate a ma­jor rift be­tween the pair on Mon­day 31 July and Din­gaan elab­o­rates: “It af­fects their re­la­tion­ship and ev­ery­thing that they have built so far. Why would Thandaza think that he would steal from ‘ their’ com­pany? James has been sup­port­ive of Basadi since day 1 and when Thandaza wasn’t ‘right in the head’ [in 2015], James took over the com­pany as act­ing CEO. They’ve been through thick and thin whether it be through per­sonal or pri­vate prob­lems.”

TROU­BLES ARE MUL­TI­PLY­ING

James wants to con­front Thandaza and prove that he has noth­ing to do with the miss­ing money, but he learns that she is in a predica­ment of her own on Tues­day 1 Au­gust. “Thandaza doesn’t want to talk to James about busi­ness in this man­ner – she wants to run away from it. She doesn’t even want to talk with the au­di­tors and lawyers,” says Din­gaan. Be­ing the car­ing friend that he is, James makes it his mis­sion to find a so­lu­tion to the money predica­ment later the same day. And that’s where even more drama starts tak­ing shape. James starts talk­ing to power-hun­gry busi­ness-woman Mat­shidiso (Buhle Sa­muels) and Din­gaan smirks, “Noth­ing good comes from Mat­shidiso, so things will get in­ter­est­ing…”

James is ac­cused of em­bez­zling funds. Thandaza is caught be­tween a rock and hard place.
