Trapped like a rat

Shady Ian is get­ting a taste of his own medicine be­hind bars.

Ian (Ab­duragh­maan Adams) was put in jail for em­bez­zle­ment on Tues­day 18 July and while he thinks that he’s get­ting away Scott free, the owner of Suidooster Prop­er­ties is in for a nasty sur­prise. The very next day, Wed­nes­day 19 July, he’s still be­hind bars and his big­gest sup­port is go­ing to turn her back on him!

ANGER & RE­VENGE

Ian’s sis­ter-in-law and busi­ness part­ner Lee-Ann (Por­tia Joel) flagged miss­ing money in the busi­ness trust ac­count and Abdu says that “Ian used the cash to en­rich him­self and fund his other dirty schemes”. Ian doesn’t even need to try to work out who caught him: Lee-Ann told him to his face when he was hauled off in cuffs on Tues­day 18 July. But that’s not his big­gest worry: his wife Brid­gette (Denise New­man) gives him the cold shoul­der on Wed­nes­day 19 July. “This scan­dal is just too big for her to ac­cept and deal with,” ex­plains Denise. “She turned a blind eye to his other crim­i­nal plans, but she can no longer do that and pre­tend that ev­ery­thing is above board.” Later that day, he’s also de­nied bail! Ouch!

LOS­ING CON­TROL

In a des­per­ate bid for free­dom, Ian sum­mons his friend Chris (Mar­cel van Heer­den) to the jail on Thurs­day 20 July to help with a plan for free­dom. “Ian thinks that he’s al­ways in con­trol and that the cards will al­ways fall in his favour,” says Abdu. But that isn’t hap­pen­ing – again! Chris tells him that there’s noth­ing he can do to help Ian right now, but there is an­other op­tion – it’s just go­ing to cost Ian an arm and leg. Ian needs to do a “favour” in ex­change for help from his dan­ger­ous cell­mate Plakkies (Noel Oos­ten­dorp).

MAT­TER OF LIFE & DEATH

Life at the Oc­to­ber house takes an ugly turn on Tues­day 25 July when Brid­gette’s credit cards are de­clined at the shops – they’ve been frozen! “This is the cherry on the ic­ing for her. The mess with Ian hits her hard now,” adds Denise. Ian sends her a mes­sage on Wed­nes­day 26 July and tells her to sell their lux­ury as­sets to fund their need for cash but Brid­gette re­fuses. On Thurs­day 27 July, Ian takes an­other punch to the gut – lit­er­ally this time as masked men jump him in his cell and beat him to a bloody pulp. “Jail isn’t a friendly place at the best of times,” says Abdu, “so Ian needs to learn to sur­vive. He isn’t go­ing any­where for now!”

Ian’s (left) prison prob­lems get worse when he gets in­volved with his cell­mate Plakkies. Brid­gette drops her hus­band like a hot potato.
