No hard feel­ings

Smanga kicks Tau out of the fam­ily busi­ness when Tau is linked to Thabi’s mur­der.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - GENERATIONS – THE LEGACY -

Be­ing tight with the Moroka fam­ily is good busi­ness – they’ve got con­nec­tions ev­ery­where. But keep­ing that per­fect im­age is tough work. On Wed­nes­day 16 Au­gust, Smanga (Moopi Moth­ibeli) dis­cov­ers that not only is his un­cle Tau (Ra­pu­lana Seiphemo) linked to his fi­ancée Thabi’s (Mot­soaledi Se­tumo) death in early Au­gust, Tau was cheat­ing with her. “It’s a bit­ter pill to swal­low,” says Moopi. “Smanga is des­per­ate for an­swers – he read about Tau and Thabi in the pa­pers and he is fu­ri­ous!” Later that day, Smanga and his brother Mazwi (Musa Ngema) kick their un­cle out of the fam­ily busi­ness – they have a rep­u­ta­tion to pro­tect and can’t be as­so­ci­ated with a ly­ing killer.


Thabi’s mur­der and the is­sues with Tau aren’t Smanga’s only is­sues – his bi­o­log­i­cal daugh­ter Rorisang (Lethokuhle Jiyane) is rushed to the hospi­tal on Fri­day 18 Au­gust. “There’s too much con­fu­sion in Smanga’s world. Thabi is dead and Rori’s health leaves him in shock,” says Moopi. Smanga had planned to walk away from the fam­ily and start afresh af­ter propos­ing to Thabi in July but that’s gone now. “He’s forced to put on a front to his fam­ily. He wants some­one to pay for Thabi’s death and right now, Tau is look­ing guilty!” says Moopi. “There are ques­tion marks about Tau’s in­volve­ment and Smanga wants to get to the bot­tom of it!”


The fu­neral al­most turns into a war­zone on Mon­day 21 Au­gust when Tau ar­rives to pay his re­spects. “Smanga has put to­gether the per­fect fu­neral but you can cut the ten­sion with a knife. Smanga kick him out. He wants to bury his fi­ancée in peace and Tau is the last per­son Smanga wants to see,” ex­plains Moopi. This causes a me­dia buzz but Smanga doesn’t care, says the ac­tor. “He knows Tau is keep­ing se­crets from him and the fam­ily about Thabi.”


Mazwi and Smanga have al­ways had a sib­ling ri­valry but they put that aside on Tues­day 29 Au­gust. “Smanga has Mazwi’s sup­port in get­ting rid of Tau. They are go­ing to sell his shares and that will be good for the fam­ily,” says Moopi. They need to be care­ful though – “Tau knows the fam­ily se­crets. He has noth­ing to lose if his neph­ews kick him out of the Moroka clan. He’s hold­ing the trump card and won’t hold back!”

Smanga can’t be­lieve his eyes when Tau ar­rives at Thabi’s fu­neral.
