The Zamde­las are Hori­zon Deep’s First Fam­ily Of Crime – Bra Ge­orgie (Dar­ling­ton Michaels) has stolen, cheated and scammed his way to the top since the soapie started in 1998. But if Ge­orgie’s she­been boss daugh­ter Nina (Khabon­ina Qubeka) has her way, they’ll be go­ing clean – she wants to re­vamp the fam­ily im­age for the sake of her son Obak­eng (Anga Makubalo), who re­turned from a spir­i­tual cleans­ing in early July after be­ing di­ag­nosed with post-trau­matic stress dis­or­der from a con job-gone-wrong. But from Thurs­day 20 July, Ge­orgie makes it clear that he dis­agrees.

GUNS OUT

“Nina and Ge­orgie’s re­la­tion­ship is al­ways chang­ing,” ex­plains Khabon­ina. “There will al­ways be is­sues and she’ll never un­der­stand the busi­ness that Ge­orgie is in­vested in. He wants her to play by his rules but she re­fuses.” Khabon­ina adds that her char­ac­ter wants to cre­ate “a bet­ter life for Obak­eng and take him out of the Zamdela world, more so be­cause he is a new dad”. Ge­orgie wants his grand­son to make money, to live the grand life that be­ing a thug will give him, but Nina is hav­ing none of it and proves that she is her fa­ther’s daugh­ter on Thurs­day 20 July: she pulls a gun on Ge­orgie.

TRIG­GER TRAPPED

Obak­eng walks in on the pair on Fri­day 21 July and by now Ge­orgie’s got his gun out too. “Nina is an­gry at her fa­ther for turn­ing Obak­eng’s life up­side down. Nina has tried to rein in her son’s be­hav­iour and has rep­ri­manded Ge­orgie from encouraging Obak­eng to com­mit crime,” says Khabon­ina. “Noth­ing’s worked, so for Nina, her gun will help make Ge­orgie lis­ten.” Obak­eng stands there help­less as his mother threat­ens to shoot her fa­ther and the sit­u­a­tion trig­gers his trauma again – the ex­act thing Nina was hop­ing not to do fol­low­ing Oba’s March 2017 kid­nap­ping-and-tor­ture or­deal.

FREE­DOM AT A PRICE

“Obak­eng’s had a hard life,” Khabon­ina says. “Nina wants him to have an hon­est life, rais­ing his son with his baby­mama Kamo (Mak­gotso M).” Nina has or­gan­ised his a job at the veg­etable mar­ket, “But it may be too late,” warns the ac­tress. Ge­orgie is no pushover and he won’t be let­ting go of his heir and only grand­son that eas­ily. That doesn’t mean he’ll shoot his daugh­ter – Ge­orgie knows how to talk his way out a tight spot if he’ll ben­e­fit in the end…

Ge­orgie and Nina are gun­ning for each other. Obak­eng is caught in the mid­dle again.
