Kiss­ing catches

Snoop­ing Rachel bursts through the door to find Nimza and Pretty look­ing coy

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SKEEM SAAM -

The Seakamela and Kunutu fam­i­lies haven’t agreed on any­thing since March 2015 when Nim­rod Kunutu (Buhle Maseko) tricked MaN­tuli Seakamela (Dieket­seng Mnisi) into a credit card scam. “She ab­so­lutely hates his fam­ily! She’s made it pub­lic that she hates them but Nimza isn’t the type to lis­ten,” ex­plains Buhle. And that in­cludes her “hands- off” pol­icy with her daugh­ter Pretty (Ler­ato Maseko). Nimza in­vites Pretty to hang out at his house on Fri­day 25 Au­gust and Buhle says that “they’re in love. They want to spend time to­gether with­out their par­ents find­ing out. Nimza steals the key for the empty room in his house so that he can have Pretty all to him­self”.

OFF GUARD

Although Pretty knows that she isn’t wel­come in the Kunutu house­hold, she fol­lows her heart on Fri­day 25 Au­gust. “At first, she’s scep­ti­cal and thinks that Nimza has ul­te­rior mo­tives, but it turns out he doesn’t,” says Buhle. “Nimza has gen­uine feel­ings for this girl and he’d never put her in a com­pro­mis­ing sit­u­a­tion.” But what Nimza has for­got­ten is that his sis­ter Rachel (Le­sego Marakalla) is nosy – she walks in on the pair. “It’s awk­ward and for the first time, Rachel is speech­less,” laughs Buhle. Nimza and Pretty beg Rachel to keep quiet but it’s not that easy – she still isn’t over be­ing dumped by Pretty’s brother Kwaito (Cle­ment Maosa) – also in March 2015. “Rachel thinks that she has a one-up on every­one. She has all the power: she’s go­ing to use Pretty to take vengeance on Kwaito and also con­trol Nimza’s moves,” says Buhle.

QUEEN BLACKMAIL

Rachel is back to her bul­ly­ing best on Mon­day 28 Au­gust and Buhle adds that “Rachel threat­ens to tell Ma’Ntuli about Pretty’s ‘meet­ing’ with Nimza and there isn’t a thing that Pretty can say as she doesn’t want to lose Nimza”. Like his se­cret girl­friend, Nimza too is walk­ing on eggshells around Rachel on Tues­day 29 Au­gust. He’s try­ing to get his par­ents Celia and John (Shoki Se­bot­sane and Putla Sehlapelo) to of­fi­cially let him move to the back room, but be­fore he can get his idea across, “Rachel tells their par­ents that it isn’t a good idea,” says Buhle. “She doesn’t want Nimza near Pretty at all!”
