Cosmo Diale (Ron­nie Nyakale) has a rep­u­ta­tion around Alexan­dra town­ship: he’s not to be messed with. And while his pa­tience is tested by his sis­ter Lucy (Manaka Ranaka) and the cus­tomers at their fam­ily restau­rant busi­ness S’khaftin Chicken, as well as his gang­ster buddy Gadaffi ( Vuyo Dab­ula), “That [life] is not what Cosmo is all about,” laughs Ron­nie. In fact, it seems that Cosmo wants to get out of the crime world. On Thurs­day 3 August, he’s put on the spot by Gadaffi and told to mur­der “a prob­lem”. “But he re­fuses,” ex­plains the ac­tor. “Gadaffi is fu­ri­ous and grabs the gun. Cosmo isn’t a killer like Gadaffi.” Ron­nie adds that his char­ac­ter will most cer­tainly “han­dle” a prob­lem if he’s asked to, but blood on his hands is some­thing he isn’t will­ing to do.


Un­like Gadaffi, Cosmo was raised by a strict mom and Gog’ Flo (Ivy Nkutha) ex­pects only good things from her chil­dren, in­clud­ing wild- child Lucy. Gog’ Flo turns a bit of a blind eye to Cosmo’s deal­ings – she’s aware that he isn’t the most hon­est of men but she knows that he’s not a killer or drug dealer. Gog’ Flo is be­side her­self on Fri­day 4 August when she finds Lucy’s boyfriend Mrekza (Kope Mak­gae) walk­ing around her house in his un­der­wear, but her pleas to “fix this” are ig­nored by Cosmo. “She doesn’t un­der­stand why Mrekza is so com­fort­able in their house like this, but Cosmo just chases Mrekza out – noth­ing more. He’s got big­ger fish to fry right now,” says Ron­nie.

Cosmo’s got him­self in­volved in a mur­der mess that could send him and his friend Gadaffi to jail. And Cosmo didn’t even do the deed – it was Moroka busi­ness­man Tau (Ra­pu­lana Seiphe- mo) and Gadaffi who pulled the trig­ger in 2015. They’ve all been on edge since mid-July when feisty Thabi (Mot­soaledi Se­tumo) showed up. She’s search­ing for her miss­ing brother and Tau’s ri­val Jack ( Vusi Kunene) is putting ideas in her head. Jack wants Tau gone – and if Thabi finds out that Tau killed her brother, it will be the end of him. “Cosmo doesn’t want to be dragged into this mess but he has to help his friend Gadaffi,” says Ron­nie. “It’s not to help Tau – no one wants to be as­so­ci­ated with him right now. This is purely to help Gadaffi.”


The po­lice pile pres­sure on Cosmo’s plans when they knock on Tau’s door on Wed­nes­day 9 August with a search war­rant. “It’s go­ing to be a long ride,” ex­plains Ron­nie. “But Cosmo is no fool and he’s great at ex­tract­ing info from peo­ple. He even makes a break-through [on Fri­day 11 August].” But it’s not good news for Gadaffi – he’s in even more trou­ble than he thought. “But he has Cosmo at his side and while he won’t kill for Gadaffi, Cosmo won’t let his friend go to pri­son. He will ‘ take care’ of things,” teases Ron­nie.

Cosmo tries to calm his friend Gadaffi be­fore there’s an­other corpse to get rid of.

Sneaky Jack is do­ing ev­ery­thing he can to de­stroy Tau.

Tau needs help solv­ing his prob­lem and Cosmo is the man for the job.
