Truth & Mur­der

Blade needs an­swers if he’s go­ing to avenge Zweli’s death.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - ISIBAYA -

On Mon­day 31 July, the Val­ley was rocked by dev­as­tat­ing news. Their beloved Chief Zweli (Andile Gumbi) had died in a car ac­ci­dent. Zweli’s sub­jects went into mourn­ing, in­clud­ing his wife and cur­rent Queen Sihle (Zinhle Mabena). But what the Val­ley doesn’t know is that Sihle is hid­ing a deep, dark and painful se­cret… one that’s threat­en­ing to be ex­posed when Blade (Jef­frey Sekele) comes snoop­ing for an­swers to the Chief’s “death” on Fri­day 25 Au­gust.

PAINFUL LOSS

“When Blade heard the news, he was more than just shocked. He was an­gry and felt con­flicted,” ex­plains Jef­frey. In fact, Blade was ut­terly dev­as­tated by the loss – Zweli was like a son to him. Jef­frey adds that “af­ter [for­mer Chief and Zweli’s fa­ther] Bhek­ifa ( Vusi Kunene) died in 2016, Blade took over right-hand man du­ties for Zweli and the two be­came close. It’s only right to say that Blade wants to know more about his Chief’s death and find the per­son re­spon­si­ble for it.”

DRIVEN BY ANGER

It’s no se­cret to view­ers that pow­er­hun­gry Sihle and no-good med­dler Ng­webedla (Ernest Ndlovu) are be­hind Zweli’s car crash. They schemed to get Zweli out of the way, with Queen Sihle promis­ing her new min­ion a place on the throne if Ng­webedla did as he was told. “Blade has never liked Sihle and he is cer­tain that she is to blame for Zweli’s death. Blade also needs to look over his own shoul­der be­cause who­ever was out for Zweli could be out for him too,” re­veals Jef­frey. And he has a point – on Thurs­day 17 Au­gust, Sihle is wor­ry­ing that ev­ery­thing she’s done for power could come un­done. The peo­ple of the Val­ley don’t like her and there could be trou­ble if she takes the throne in her late hus­band’s place.

INTERROGATE A SUS­PECT

Blade was right to trust his gut and no stranger to the seedy un­der­world, he vis­its hitman Mbodla (Du­misani Dlamini) on Tues­day 29 Au­gust. But it’s not like Mbodla is just go­ing to re­veal what he knows. “Blade will de­stroy the per­son who killed Zweli and noth­ing will hold him back. Mbodla knows that, but he also knows that Sihle isn’t to be tri­fled with,” teases Jef­frey.
